Admit it: Your mom is the best. So making a Mother’s Day cake to show her how much you care should be a no-brainer. But which cake should you bake? Here’s a hint: Choose one packed with Mom’s favorite flavors, not your own. And remember, it doesn’t need to be an elaborate affair (although we certainly have a few many-layered options if you want to go that route). Mom will love whatever you make, as long as you try your best.
Some of the most delicious cakes in the collection below are easy: a simple strawberry cake dotted with perfect spring berries; a loaf cake flavored with citrusy Earl Grey—ideal snacking cakes to graze on that look and taste good. Just don’t forget to sprinkle in a “Happy Mother’s Day!” over the oohs and aahs. And always bring a card. Moms love cards.
