While most of the country has tunnel vision on the upcoming election day on May 9, there’s another event right before that day that we shouldn’t miss. Because on May 8, we celebrate Mother’s Day. As the day nears, you should start making plans (if you still haven’t) to ensure that mom feels extra loved and taken care of on this special day. One of the simplest ways you can do that is to surprise mom with a beautiful cake to make Mother’s Day extra special. We listed down some bakeries and shops where you can order a beautiful cake for Mother’s Day:
Mary Grace Cafe
One of the favorite cafes of every Filipino mother, Mary Grace is always a go-to for special occasions, and Mother’s Day is no different. This year, they’re offering a limited edition Tres Leches cake. The vanilla sponge cake is soaked in Earl Grey tea-infused milk, then filled with home-made caramel filling and wrapped in a beautiful rose ombre frosting. Every cake order comes with one bottle of Tres Leches milk sauce for that extra sweetness. The cake is available for PHP 2,308, and an extra bottle of milk sauce costs PHP 275. Order through their website.
If your mom prefers a more simple design, you can go with the cute Korean minimalist cakes that are all the trend nowadays. For Mother’s Day, Aegyo Cakes came up with a special flavor inspired by Regency romance series Bridgerton for moms everywhere: Strawberry Cloud Aegyo Cake.
