Whether you buy or make a cake for Mother’s Day, it’s always important to make sure that you choose a cake that will make mum happy. There are plenty of delcious cakes from which to choose and the only thing you will need to remember is what mum prefers. Some are partial to chocolate whereas others are more inclined to tuck into a chocolate or creamy dessert.
If you know that mum loves chocolate, then a chocolate cake is definitely the way to go. There are a number of variations of this old favourite and, while some recipes have become quite complex, others are still really simple. So, from traditional chocolate cake to recipes that include cream, brandy, caramel, or even berries, you’ll never get bored of these recipes.
Cheesecake is another wonderful option and, like chocolate cake, you can find many variations of this particular dessert. There are fruity varieties as well as chocolate, caramel, and even peanut butter! This is a considerably rich dessert which means that you need not make a massive cheesecake to satisfy her sweet tooth.
If the weather is still quite chilly, you might want to treat mum to a warm pudding. Sticky toffee pudding is always delicious and really easy to make. Another great idea is a cobbler. Chocolate cobblers have a delicious rich sauce while apple cobbler tastes especially great when you add cinnamon. Peach and banana cobbler is also a favourite in many households and, no matter the type of cobbler you choose, it can be enjoyed as is or topped with ice cream or whipped cream.
Finally, for something light and fluffy, a sponge cake with mum’s favourite frosting is something everyone can enjoy. If you opt for a vanilla cake, you can add any kind of frosting and even top with fresh fruit or berries. Another advantage of choosing this kind of cake is the fact that it is usually the most affordable of all.
