Ten Mother’s Day Cake Recipes {Eat Dessert First!}

Mother’s Day is coming up soon and I know that, at least according to my Mom, it’s all about dessert!  She is a firm believer in the whole “Eat dessert first” school of thought and, well really.  Can you blame her?  So I have been trying to pick something to make that she will really love {although I don’t think she has ever met a dessert she doesn’t like!} and here is an awesome round up of  Mother’s Day Cake Recipes I have come across in my hunt for new ideas:

First, I am swooning over this Lemon Raspberry Pound Cake from Trish over at Mom On Time Out:

I don’t think Aimee at Shugary Sweets has ever made anything that didn’t look delicious – this Cherry Margarita Poundcake is no exception.

Cheryl over at TidyMom always has amazing ideas and I am so glad this Malted Chocolate Cake w/ Toasted Marshmallow Filling came across my inbox today.    Fabulous!!

My pal Julie {AKA my other favorite redhead} busted out this awesome Pink Lemonade Cake a while back and I really need to try this ASAP!  YUM.

Jenny created this gorgeous Battenberg Cake W/ White Chocolate Ganache… (PS: I love her idea on dividing the pan!)

Apples are actually my Dad’s favorite but I know my Mom would love this Moist, Delicious Apple Cake by Little Miss Celebration.  The cinnamon coated apples inside just scream comfort and “made by Mom”.

Ok, ok.  It’s a pie BUT… my Mom {and Dad} actually tasted this a few days ago and LOVED it so it passes the “Mom test”.  My Salted Caramel Banana Cream Pie w/ Pretzel Crust:

This Mother’s Day Cake” by Amanda @ I Am Baker is just too sweet.  She made her own easy fondant AND the letters on the cake spell out “Happy Mother’s Day” over and over.  Love.

I adore blueberries AND cheesecake and this Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake by Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice is a wonderful idea for a Mother’s Day brunch!

Lastly, here’s an interesting recipe I came across in my hunt for peanut butter desserts… A gluten free, sugar free, vegan option by Kelly at Foodie Fiasco.  I am blown away that Kelly is only 14 years old (!!) and has such an amazing niche blog.  If you or the Mom in your life would prefer a healthier dessert option, you must check out these “All For One” Individual Peanut Butter Cakes!

Happy baking!  With all of these great ideas, I am pretty sure I will have to make more than one dessert for Mother’s Day this year!
