What does MOM stand for? Man of the Match, Microsoft Operations Manager, Man on a Mission? It can, but we believe it means Most Outstanding Mother. In light of Mother’s Day this coming Sunday we want to honour all the incredible Moms and Mother figures out there! You really are life's true superheroes.
Did you know that Mother’s Day origins date back to ancient Greek and Roman times? Proving that Mothers have always been revered for the pivotal role they play in our lives. In ancient times mother goddesses were recognised in celebrations that lasted for three days and included parades, games and masquerades (we vote to bring back these extended celebrations – who’s with us?!). Bringing it back to 2022, spoil mom this Sunday by inviting the family around and treating her to a wonderful gathering full of love and cake! The sweetener for the day must be a delicious Walnut Truffle, layered with chocolate sponge, marzipan paste and mocha cream, covered with a rich dark cocoa ganache. Decorate your cake with extra chocolates and golden shards of crispy honeycomb or a pile of fresh raspberries and double thick cream. We ‘Cake It Easy’ to make your celebration come to life!
America was involved in a devastating civil war between 1861 and 1865, and, no doubt, many mothers were mourning the loss of their sons. In 1872 an American writer, poet and activist named Julia Ward Howe proposed that June 2nd every year should be set aside to celebrate Mothers and be dedicated to peace. This idea spread widely and has since become the Mother’s Day the world celebrates on a Sunday in May. In South Africa, Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
If your Mom is firm but kind, strong but with a soft heart, mischievous and beautiful, then our Caramel Mozart is the perfect cake to gift her. It has gorgeous layers of soft meringue with shortbread, caramel cream and caramel swirls, topped with a shortbread biscuit crumble – all the elements of your lovely Mother figure.
