Say it with cake -- Love you, Mom!

It’s that one day of the year when supermoms get the recognition and extra special pampering they deserve. Our moms have been there from the snuggles to the struggles, and they’re our go-to person on all things. It’s often a thankless job, and yet, they’re more than happy to do it.

There are as many gift options as there are different roles mom plays, but why not send out a sweet message by gifting her with something, er, sweet? These Mother’s Day offerings from top Cebuano dessert and pastry shops take the cake (see what we did there?):

Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino


For this year’s Mother’s Day, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino is offering its specialty cake for the whole month of May. The sweet and luscious Mango Cremeux on Sable Breton has layers of mango mousse, vanilla sponge cake and French butter biscuits.

Tamp Cafe and Co.


You know it’s a good carrot cake when it’s ultra-moist and has just the right cream cheese frosting-to-cake ratio, in that the carrot flavor still shines through. Tamp Cafe executes this well in its Mother’s Day Carrot Cake, hidden just beneath that dainty exterior.

Rhapsody Desserts and Delectables PH


The Best of Cebu 2020 winner for Best Basque Burnt Cheesecake is upping the ante by infusing its bestseller with chocolate. The decadence doesn’t stop there. On top are fresh strawberries lying on a bed of Chantilly cream with grated cacao, and garnished with edible flowers of butterfly pea, mini sunflower and French marigold.

LMG Pastry and Macaron 5


A collaboration between two well-loved brands when it comes to confections, this eight-inch moist chocolate cake is filled with the lightest chocolate whipped cream, frosted with the silkiest chocolate ganache and then topped with coffee and dark chocolate French macarons.

10 Dove Street


The Flores Cake is perfect for those who prefer their desserts light. This pandan-infused cake from 10 Dove Street is filled with its homemade ube halaya and mango cream, and frosted with flowers and foliage.

Treat Street Cafe


Here’s something extraordinary for the most extraordinary woman in your life: Treat Street’s Honey Toffee Crunch cake. It has an interesting mix of textures and flavors with its light and spongy chiffon cake, soft whipped cream and crunchy honeycomb toffee.
