Mothering Sunday

While flowers and cards are always appreciated, I like to get a little more creative with my Mother’s Day gift giving. And what better way to show your mother how much she means to you than with something handmade? I love to make my mum a homemade afternoon tea baking lots of delicious treats  to wash down with a good cuppa! Its simple but my mum is a busy bee and to get five minuets to sit down to indulge in tea and cake is a luxury for her! I thought i would share with you some of the cupcakes i have baked for her previously to give you a few ideas on what can be created! 

Jazz it up make edible flower cakes to go with your bunch of flowers! 

Cant get any more English than a pot of tea accompanied by strawberries and cream cupcakes!

One of my mums favourites Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcakes ...simple but effective ;) 

Now if your not a dab hand in the kitchen why not check out places you can buy pretty little treats to create your own bought after noon tea! Here are a few places that sell fab cakey treats that you can bring home and treat your mum with! 

They make gorgeous cakes i particularly enjoy this chocolate treat which is £3.25 

Why not go all out and get a gift box so all the family can join in, the Humming Bird Bakery create pretty boxes for £19.50

The well known Lola's offer a selection of chocolate and vanilla mothers day themed cupcakes at £18.00

Now if your mum isn't one for cupcakes perhaps she likes a biccy or two? I came across the most wonderful biscuit company that hand ice these beautiful biscuits, i have fell in love and would love at some point to try these wonderful creations out! Heres one of their mothers day products! 


Amazing biscuits this selection is called The Flower Power Biscuit Tin at £30 

These places are all little suggestions if you can't bare baking yourself, if your budget doesn't stretch that far  then why not try out your local bakery or even the bakery department in Waitrose they have lovely fresh cakes! Although i still think homemade has that extra special touch ...even if it is slightly burnt ;). Let me know how you got on and what your buying/making your mum this Mothers Day!
