Nothing says ‘I love you’ to your mother like homemade desserts made with love. Giving you some recipes, you can recreate them for your mother—here are some of our favorite Mother’s Day Dessert Ideas for the best mom ever this 2022.
Mothers are extremely special whether we agree with them or not—what would we simply do if it wasn’t for them? We all have 5 senses, but women who go on to become mothers have an instinctive sixth sense. Even if you try your hardest to hide certain aspects of your life, she is going to figure it all out eventually (sometimes just by a single glimpse). And until you tell her what’s bothering you or keeping you down, she’s going to wonder who’s got her child feeling down. Leave it to her to cheer you up whether it’s preparing your favorite food, giving you a tight hug, whispering words of affirmation, or taking you on a shopping adventure—yes, moms are just incredible!
When it comes to celebrating our mothers, it can feel like an impossible task to even repay them for all they have done in the first place. And that’s completely understandable. From all the hustle and bustle, from cooking, to laundry, to helping with the homework, do they even rest? Sounds like a full-time job! Even so, it is never far-fetched in wanting to prepare something meaningful for your mother. If you like the idea of making something from your own instead of buying it somewhere, then you have come to the right place.

Why we think you should make something for HER
In many cultures, in many countries, food really is an expression of love, and the sentiment of it is beautiful because it’s something we can all relate to in some form or another. We think offering food to somebody else is just as much a comfort to the person receiving as the person who’s serving and offering… And that’s good enough of a reason as any for us to give it our all in giving that food to them.
If you are familiar with the 5 love languages that is: words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service, and receiving gifts… That’s all lovely and sweet, and we are compelled to think that there maybe be a 6th love language, that is baking (of course, we don’t claim this to be true, we are hinting at it).
And it’s really quite simple, with a few things you need to realise before you get into the task of baking something for your mother. Firstly, be aware of yourself and center your attention to what you are feeling at present. It helps you to take notice of your feelings and surroundings in a clearer manner which lets you to be true to yourself. Then, think of her. Think of all the sacrifices your mother has made for you to come this far. Feel the gratitude and let that create a desire in you to wholly express your love for her through baking. If this makes you happy—she will be too. Love can be felt.
What else is there to know about Mother’s Day?
Learning some facts about Mother’s Day can spark interesting conversations between family and friends. As you celebrate it with the desserts you will make this year, it’s nice to know some of the facts pertaining to the celebration like so:
Mother’s Day is always the second Sunday in May. That means for each year, it will fall on a different date each year. This year, it will be celebrated on Sunday, May 8, 2022, but next year it will be on a different day in May. And on and on it goes.
Social activist Julia Ward Howe first brought the idea of Mother’s Day to the United States after the Civil War. However, Howe’s version is vastly different from the flowers-and-hugs version we know of today. In fact, a Mother’s Day Proclamation was written by Howe where she had envisioned a Mother’s Day for Peace (where women would protest against war). And even until this day, there are some groups that still observe the holiday in this manner. Who would’ve thought?
Although it wasn’t like the Mother’s Day celebrations we have today, the ancient Greeks used to hold spring festivals to honor the maternal goddess, Rhea, as she was believed to be the mother of many deities.
