To be very, very trite:
LET HER EAT CAKE.
Because that’s what she wants on Mother’s Day: to be made something special—something that took real effort—for it to be delivered to her sweetly, with a smile and a flower, and then to be left the h&#( alone.
So do that for her, won’t you?
Why It Woos: With it, you’re telling her: “You’re a sweet angel, Mother.” Moms like compliments just as much as the next gal.
Why It Woos: You made that swirl all by yourself!
Why It Woos: It has “velvet” in the title. So don’t forget to mention its name as you set it before her.
Why It Woos: It’s a lighter version of fruitcake for those nutmeg, pecan, and raisin-loving moms.
Why It Woos: It’s proof that you listened to her talk about seasonality all those years.
Why It Woos: Wine.
Why It Woos: She can have one slice now, and one each with her morning coffee for the next three days.
Why It Woos: “You candied those lemon slices yourself, too?!” [hugs and smiles]
