Win the favorite kid contest once and for all with Mother’s Day desserts that are easy, cheerful, bright and perfect to cap off a fancy brunch or accompany a simple card.

Mom always did like gifts made with your own two little hands, so DIY some tasty treats that show her she’s the best.
No cocktails necessary when you bring these mimosa-flavored cupcakes to brunch. Orange juice and champagne flavored-white cake are topped with an infusion of champagne that can be infused prior to eating for a treat that’s a gift within a gift. Here’s to mothers everywhere!
HEART IN BLOOM GIANT COOKIE
Give mom your heart—in giant cookie shape! Save time by using frozen sugar cookie dough in our giant heart cookie pan, then pipe tulips, chrysanthemums and other whole blossoms in one squeeze with our specialty oversize tips. Mums for your mum? Done.
CIRCLE OF LOVE MOTHER’S DAY CAKE
For the buttercream decorators, nothing shows off beautifully piped flowers like a simple spatula-iced white cake with brightly colored poppies, carnations and ranunculus. A simple dedication piped in the middle says everything with just one word.
MOTHER’S DAY SPRITZ COOKIES
Cake decorating not your thing? Tint your spritz cookie batter a soft pink and use the flower attachment on your cookie press to bake a batch of these sweet floral cookies. Piped outlines and sugar pearl centers make for a delicate finish that looks great piled on a plate or next to a pretty cup of mom’s favorite tea.
EASY BLOOMS MINI CUPCAKES
Use the language of flowers to say “I love you” by decorating store-bought or homemade cupcakes with oversized piped tulips and mums for your mum! Stripe your decorating bag for a two-tone effect, or experiment with arranging the cupcakes in a bouquet or basket.
SUMMER BLOOMS BUTTERCREAM FLOWER CAKE
Artsy mothers will love this watercolor-painted buttercream cake decorated with striking white flowers. The combination of blue and green icings make for a watery backdrop on which the blossoms appear to float their way across your table. A stunning centerpiece any mom will love.
SWEET SURPRISE CANDY COOKIES
For a no-bake option that’s pretty as a picture, dip the sandwich cookie of your choice in melted pastel-colored candy and pipe lines and dots in contrasting white. Vary the color palette to match mom’s favorite flowers or match your brunch décor. Simple, sweet, and no oven required.
