May 12th is Mother's Day and like every year we are looking for the best way to celebrate it. Which object could tell you the good that we want? To which words do you entrust a thought dedicated to her? Nobody. And not because we haven't searched enough. We cannot entrust our thoughts to anything material and immediate because the relationship with our mothers is something so delicate, important and great that we have built day after day, year after year that cannot be told in a day. But this is not a good excuse for doing nothing!
Celebrating the person who loves us most in the world is a pleasure, but also a duty. To do this, we have chosen a cake, or rather 15 for at least three good reasons.
For the time
By giving her a cake, we will give her time to prepare it. But also what we will take to taste it together, to talk about it and to remember it. Bringing it to her then will be an opportunity to see each other, perhaps indulge in a very slow lunch as we hadn't done in a while.
To show her that we learned from her
The best cakes we have eaten are his. Because they knew of home, of simple and special moments and were made just for us. In all these years we have seen it kneading, whipping, baking and churning and we ate. A lot. But for Mother's Day we will reverse roles (and get ready for a shower of compliments).
Because there is a piece of us
Who cooks for others, creates something unique and unrepeatable. In a dessert there is indeed all the personality, passion and creativity of those who prepare it who can express themselves with small variations, personalized decorations and original packaging. In short, your cake speaks of you and the mother would like to spend hours listening to her.
