What does Mother’s Day usually look like for you? For me it’s often a bit of a non-event because it’s right after my birthday so I’ve already had a “special day” and we usually spend the day travelling long distances to visit my Mum and Mark’s mother as well. It’s often rush rush rush, and busy busy busy. So when we were invited to try one of the amazing ice-cream cakes from Baskin-Robbins, I thought it would be a wonderful chance to enjoy a relaxed early Mother’s Day celebration. We enjoyed a very special (and absolutely delicious!) morning tea together, free from other commitments and with nowhere else to be but enjoying each other’s company.
My favourite sweet treat is ice-cream. I’m not fussy with flavour either. Give me strawberry, give me choc chip or cookies and cream, hey, give me vanilla and I’m happy. My other favourite dessert is cake. Who doesn’t love cake? Can you imagine what kind of Heaven I’m in then when my two favourite things are combined into one sensational combination? Ice-cream cake is where it’s at!
As we were tucking in to our special Mother’s Day cake, it occurred to me that we Mums always arrange cake for birthdays, christenings, anniversaries and Christmas but not on Mother’s Day. Why is that? I guess it’s because, we don’t really want to be baking for ourselves on our special day – we’d rather put our feet up! The custom ice-cream cakes from Baskin-Robbins make it easy to have your cake and eat it too! Ordering our cake online was quick and easy – oh except for choosing a style and flavours. They ALL looked incredible and it was so hard to choose! In the end, R made the final choices. He was thrilled, not only because we were ordering ice-cream (he takes after his Mum, it’s his favourite dessert as well!) but because he was able to feel independent and choose a present for me all by himself.
If your family is anything like ours, everyone has a different choice when it comes to favourite flavours. Mine is well, anything (ahem) but Mark loves chocolate and R adores strawberry. The Baskin-Robbins premium custom cakes are the perfect solution because they can be ordered with up to two flavours so you’ll be able to satisfy everyone’s tastes. R selected Chocolate Mousse Royale (I KNOW! It tasted as good as it sounds!) and Very Berry Strawberry. So fabulous.
Hello! Look at that. So pretty. So yummy!
