Mothers are amazing, and they deserve nothing but the best. Give Mom a lovely sweet treat this Mother’s Day taking place on Sunday, May 12, 2013.
We have tried and tasted several Mother’s Day cakes, and here is a compilation of the ones we love! Whether your Mom has the taste for a luxurious durian cake, or an indulgent ice cream cake, we’ve got it covered.
The Icing Room
Forget about carnations. At The Icing Room, a bakery under the BreadTalk group, go pretty in pink with the gorgeous rose-like Perfect Mum strawberry cake.
S$29 for 500g
Made from classic vanilla chiffon and layered with strawberry mousse and jelly, this cake resembles the petals of a blossoming flower, adorned with silver chocolate balls for that additional dazzle! The mousse slides down the throat easily, and we think Mom will absolutely love it.
For the mouse potatoes, you can conveniently order the cake online and have it delivered on the same day to your doorstep at the newly launched online store.
Goodwood Park Hotel
If Mom is a durian fan, why not use this opportunity to pamper her with an array of durian pastries at the Goodwood Park Durian Fiesta?
S$11 per slice; S$60 for 1.3kg; S$115 for 2.5kg; S$158 for 3.5kg
Take Mom to the Deli on a nice afternoon and enjoy the perennial favourite durian mousse cake along with other sweet treats like durian puffs, tartlets and the newly introduced durian chocolate marquise cake. For a more intimate celebration at home, these items are available for take-out.

Bakery chain BreadTalk has rolled out a duo of decadent Garden of Love cakes.
S$38 for 1kg
Surprise your mum with Rosy MOMents, layered with red bean and green tea chiffon. If your mum prefers something refreshing, why not brighten her day with the refreshing Love Mom, layered with yoghurt cereal and vanilla chiffon cake?
The latter is easily my personal favourite with its cheery yellow creamy top with cute flowers and grass, and lovely balance between vanilla sweet and yoghurt sour.
The Emicakes bakery chain has created a series of delicious cakes to celebrate that special lady in our lives. Chocolate loving Moms can be treated with the classic Pure Addiction chocolate cake.

The super moist strawberry rose cake from Cedele is lovingly created with Mom in mind. Blended with refreshing dragon fruit and sandwiched with a light strawberry cream filling, the velvety cream frosting is laced with a subtle sweetness of rosewater and flanked by crunchy pistachio nuts.
Bring your Mom to Häagen-Dazs for a heavenly dish of Flower Blossom or Paradise creation. This indulgent treat comprises assorted ice cream scoops, layered with crispy waffles and perfected with a drizzle of chocolate and strawberry sauces. You also enjoy two cups of coffee, tea or soft drinks with your order for that perfect mother-daughter or mother-son bonding session.
So there you go! If you are planning a Mother’s Day celebration, whether it is surprising your Mom with a new handbag or a luxurious vacation at a place like The Ritz-Carlton or the St Lucia All Inclusive Resort, a beautiful cake always sweetens the day. We hope you find this compilation useful.
