Mother’s Day Cake Recipes

Mother’s Day Cake Recipes

By Caro

Here you will find various cake recipe, some easy & some more difficult. A lot of which, as suitable as a thank you gift for Mother's Day.  In the UK it is on Sunday the  27th March this year (2022), & in the US & other countries it is 8th May.

All recipes include thorough instructions & there will also be a Kids Baking section to get them helping too. Some recipes which I have reviewed, are also suitable. Please note that at this time, not all recipes have been moved over on to this new improved version of the site here. But please check back regularly, as I am adding daily.
