She kissed your bruises when you were a kid, had your back as a teenager and gives you great advice as an adult. No one can take the place of a mother, and it seems inadequate that we only celebrate her one day out of the year.

This year, show your mom just how special she is by treating her to some delicious homemade creations. Here are just a few to get you started:


  1. Vanilla Bean Chocolate Cake

You can’t go wrong with classic chocolate cake…and this decadent dessert puts an exceptional twist on the classic. Combine the best cocoa powder and vanilla frosting for a rich, moist indulgence. Garnish with chocolate shavings for the finishing touch!
