Sharing is caring!

It’s that time of the year when we rack our brains out wondering what gift to give to our moms for their special day. They can be notoriously hard to shop for, and when you ask them what they want, you’ll likely get the classic “I don’t need anything,” or “I already have everything I need.”

So how about we surprise them with something they can instantly enjoy out of the box? Aside from the usual bouquet of flowers, card, or perfume, we can show them some love with a box of freshly baked treats that say “I love you!”

I’ve curated a list featuring the best Mother’s Day treats not just for your mom, but also for your grandma who has spoiled you silly, the amazing mom to your kids, the superhero handling your rowdy nieces and nephews, and also your mom best friend. This selection of treats will surely turn Mother’s Day into a celebration of all things sweet and wonderful.

Treats to Get for Mother's Day

Strawberry-Rhubarb Galette

Finish off a hearty Mother’s Day meal with a galette filled with fresh strawberries and rhubarb for a refreshing spring treat. There’s no need for fancy pie dishes or precise crimping skills here, making this a great dessert to make for novice bakers out there. Don’t have rhubarb? No problem! You can easily swap it out for another fruit that your mom loves or choose one that is currently in season.

To make the galette, toss sliced strawberries, diced rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Roll out the pie crust on a baking sheet and pour the strawberry-rhubarb mixture on the center of the crust. Fold the edges of the crust in a free-form shape, and brush it with an egg wash to create a golden finish. Bake until the crust is golden, dust with powdered sugar, and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra decadent treat.

Mother’s Day Cake

Get ready to make a statement this Mother’s Day with Sweet E’s Mother’s Day Cake. This cake is decorated in two exquisite shades of pink. From the gentle light pink on top to the deeper, more vibrant pink tone at the bottom, this confection comes in a variety of bestselling flavors including confetti, chocolate lovers, red velvet, and a whole lot more. This stunning creation is topped with roses and a “Happy Mother’s Day” cake topper, and can serve as the centerpiece of a lavish Mother’s Day brunch or as a sweet surprise delivered straight to her doorstep.  

Strawberry Fool

Strawberry fool is a super simple, last-minute dessert that you can whip up in minutes for Mother’s Day. Think of it as a sophisticated upgrade to the classic strawberries-and-cream, filled with layers of vanilla whipped cream and macerated strawberries.  

First, beat your whipped cream until it becomes light and fluffy, then add vanilla extract and Grand Marnier. Mix your fresh strawberries with sugar, then add a pinch of salt or a sprinkle of lemon juice to intensify the fruit’s sweetness. Layer your whipped cream and strawberry in serving glasses, garnish with sliced strawberries on top, and serve them chilled.

Single-Serve Italian-Inspired Tiramisu

Fancy some Italian sweet treats for Mother’s Day but not up to making the whole thing? Make a small batch of this treat with condensed milk, which elevates the creaminess of the mascarpone. This recipe simplifies the classic tiramisu, making it accessible even for those who are complete newbies at baking.

Create the cream by beating together the mascarpone, condensed milk, and vanilla extract until the mixture becomes thick and smooth. Prepare your coffee and pour a little bit of coffee liqueur, then dip the ladyfingers into the coffee mixture. Place a few pieces of the soaked sponge at the bottom of two wine glasses, and top it with a generous layer of the mascarpone cream. Sift cocoa powder over the cream and chill for at least an hour before serving.

These treats are a tribute to the incredible women who have shaped our lives. Let’s make this Mother’s Day a celebration of not just desserts but of the sweetness that our moms bring into our lives.
