Moms, despite their massive sacrifices, don’t really want much from their children. 

Even though there’s one Sunday dedicated just for them each year, just a simple celebration at home would be enough for them.

While they have so much love and joy to give, it’s always nice to go all-out when we can for mama, isn’t it? We’re not talking about buying them expensive gifts—topping off your Mother’s Day surprise with some dessert is a foolproof way to make her day.

Here are some lovely options you might want to consider.


For moms who are into cakes and flower arrangements, one of these specialty delights by Everything Nice Café could be the highlight of their day. These limited-edition cakes feature the goodness of chocolate fudge decked out in pure simplicity, all thanks to their rose icing, edible beads, and soft color combinations. Each order, priced at P875, comes with an adorable cake topper. 

For moms who love mangoes with a twist, Butternut Bakery’s Mango Swoon Cake is the way to go. This offering could take them by surprise with how good their favorite fruit tastes with pandan. Inside it are pandan sponge layers with some mango-infused pandan custard not only adding flavor but also making sure they stay in place. Sealing the deal are mango slices and 24k gold flakes on top as well as some pandan frosting on all sides. 

For cheesecake-loving moms, go for The Dessert Depot’s Basque Burnt Cheesecake Loaf (P1,080). The 8” x 3” offering is much loved for its unique take on cheesecake, combining it with the nutty taste of the basque burnt version with the timeless, comforting texture of bread. Amp it up with some salted caramel, chocolate ganache, or strawberry compote for some heavenly sweetness.

For moms who can’t get enough of cake, ice cream, and everything mocha, Merry Moo’s mocha cake ice cream (P450/pint) could be their new favorite. This new item features huge chunks of Hizon’s best-selling mocha cake mixed with the ice cream brand’s creamy base, and then finished off with Hizon’s flower icing on top. A must-try for mommas with a sweet tooth.

For moms who are into the chocolate and raspberry combo, you can’t go wrong with the Malagos Chocolate Raspberry Entremet (P1,950) by Leonisa’s Kitchen. Available starting May 6, the 7.5” cake showcases layers of chocolate crumble, chocolate sponge, Malagos dark chocolate mousse,  raspberry chocolate ganache, raspberry compote, vanilla cremeux, and chocolate glaze. Bonus: It’s totally Instagrammable, too!
