Mother's Day = Flowers. Right?
I'm allergic to flowers. I know that's lame, but I am. So even though my mom enjoys them, when I'm spending Mother's Day with my mom in close quarters (say... a hotel room?) I'm not inclined to buy her flowers.
There will be flowers for Mother's Day. Of the homemade sort.
Since I'm moving on Tuesday, I don't have many groceries to work from. For today's project, I used leftover candy melts to make some things that closely resemble flowers. Last night I moved my frozen pound cake from the freezer to the fridge and voila!
A Mother's Day plate of pound cake (one of my Mom's absolute favorite desserts -- hopefully this recipe passes muster!) and purple (also Mom's favorite) and orange flowers. How can this go wrong?
With the addition of this sweet heart, I submit that nothing can go wrong.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom in specific and your mom in general.
