Did you know Sunday, 13th May is Mother’s Day here in Belgium? So, what better way to show her how loved and appreciated she is than to bake her a cake? If, however, you and the inside of an oven haven’t seen each other in a while, here’s the answer….
What about this beautiful Pot of Roses? Actually, the pot is real, but these roses are vanilla cupcakes with rose-scented buttercream icing.
Pot of Rose Cupcakes: €40
Other Flavours available:
Double Chocolate: Moist chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache icing
Strawberry Jam: Vanilla and strawberry jam cupcakes, with light, fluffy strawberry buttercream icing
Lemon Love: Moist lemon cupcakes with a light, fluffy lemon icing
Other Motherly bakes this week:
Assorted Fairy Cakes in any of the above flavours – €12 for 6
Scones – €12 for 12 Clotted Cream. Plain or wholemeal (for the quintessential Mother’s Day afternoon tea)
Clotted Cream – €5 per pot (subject to availability)
Chelsea Buns – €10 for 6
English Muffins – €8 for 6. Plain or wholemeal. Big, fat and fluffy. Perfect with an egg for breakfast in bed.
P.S. In case you’re wondering why Antwerp is the exception, it’s not that I have anything against that lovely city, it’s simply that Mother’s Day there isn’t for another 3 months!
