Not that anyone has anything against flowers, but there are a lot of them out there on Mother’s Day. In fact, About Flowers, an online flower resource created by the Society of American Florists, reports that 38 percent of U.S. adults bought flowers or plants for their mothers on the big day.
Which is why it seems like a good thing to mix it up this year. So many terrific cakes need a good home this Mother’s Day. Here are some excellent options for a wide assortment of moms.
For Generous Moms: Layer Cake Bakery (Irvine, California)
For Picky Moms: Dahlia Bakery (Seattle, Washington)
For Hoarder Moms: Caroline’s Cakes (St. Louis, Missouri)
For Dietary-Restricted Moms: Swoon (Ridgefield, Connecticut)
