Mother’s Day Cake

This year for Mother’s day, I prepared a cake for my mom. She got it a week early and loved it. It’s a happy mother’s day cake with whipped cream and strawberries, in the shape of a heart. A simple, but delicious cake. Easy to surprise your loved ones with. My mom wasn’t expecting me to bring anything, and was pleasantly surprised.

The strawberries came fresh from the farm, where we had gotten them that same week. The recipe is from the Koopmans website. My mom also loved this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake, which I prepped for my parent’s wedding anniversary. If looking for a different flavor, try out this Speculaas Pear Pie. Thinking more about making a cupcake? Here are Kingsday Cupcakes. If looking for a more savory pie, this Spinach Pie has got you covered.

Review

This recipe was easy to prepare and follow. I used less cream and mascarpone than the recipe asked for, so I couldn’t pipe roses on the side. I didn’t want to open a new container of cream, just before going on vacation.
