This Sunday calls for love and cake, pretty pink strawberry cake to be more specific. Mother’s Day will be extra special this year as this year marks my very first Mother’s Day. I’m sure I’m going to be a hot mess that day. I couldn’t image any greater gift than being a mother. To say I’m blessed is accurate, but it doesn’t seem to be a strong enough word. I’m beyond blessed.
Now that I’m a Mother my love and respect for my own Mom has widened. Of course I’ve always had respect and love for mom, but having a baby changes something. This Mother’s Day I’ll show my appreciation for Mom as a Mom, which is all kinds of amazing.
When I say to eat pretty pink strawberry cake with Mom I mean to do so in a variety of ways. This rule applies to dog Moms, expecting Moms, those praying to expect or adopt Moms, in honor of Mom… we all have a reason to take a moment to celebrate.
So grab some fancy paper plates, make a pretty pink strawberry cake from scratch or from the box and eat. Eat cake with mom, by yourself or in a crowded room of guests. Celebrate Sunday your way.
I’ll be honest. I did not bake this cake from scratch. I picked up a boxed strawberry cake and dressed it up with sugar pearls, because sometimes that’s how I roll.
Happy Mother’s Day, friends.
