6 scrumptious bakes for Mother's Day

If you've not yet sorted your gift for Mother's Day this list of mouth-watering sweet treats could just be the answer. Suitable for all levels of baker no matter what your skill level.

1. We couldn't not include this absolutely scrummy gluten-free brownie. It made it on to our list of 10 Mother's Projects to Make, and we couldn't help but include it again here. We just really love chocolate brownies and we're sure your loved one will too!

Recipe here.

2. This delicious pud would go down well at any time of year. Red berry compote and creamy filling are sandwiched between layers of meringue and topped with a generous helping of fresh berries — a (slightly) heathier alternative for Mother's Day!

3. Update bakes from years gone by with a fresh, modern twist. This delicious swiss roll features pistachios and hints of lime — the perfect dessert after Sunday lunch.

Ensure you get a nice even coverage of filling by using a palette knife

4. Perfect those piping skills with this handy how-to from Little Venice Cake Company owner, Mich Turner. All you need is a pokey tool, icing nozzle and bag and you're ready to go.

5. If you're not a confident baker then this super-simple recipe could be right up your street.

Toscaner is a great pick-me-up if you're lacking in energy after a lovely long walk.

6. Ideal for the more advanced baker and those that are a dab hand with a paintbrush, this pretty blooms cake will be sure to get the seal of approval come Mother's Day. The cake design also cleverly uses a (squeaky clean) Xcut die as a template to create the sign.
