I made a  cake for Mothers Day.

But it was boring.

There was nothing exciting about the outside.

There is nothing excting about the inside.

Its just a plain old cake.


Except that I made it for someone who deserves something more than ‘plain old’.


I came across this quote and thought it would be the perfect addition to this cake.

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of cake for five people, promptly announces she never did care for cake*.  ~Tenneva Jordan

 *Original quote says ‘pie’.


And I am pretty sure that describes my mom.






I made a white cake with lemon frosting.

With a rose on top. 

I am sure you could cover the entire top with roses!  But I dont want to bore you with frosting roses.



I do however, want to share with you a few simple, easy, personalized and significant ways for you to celebrate your mom this Mothers Day. 


Right after I eat this.


Share with your friends!
