Yes, it’s ok to treat yourself! Skip the flowers and gifts to indulge with a cake. Orders can be made by phone or online and picked up in-store. While you are there, grab some of their local artisan bath supplies so mom (or you) can have a soak at the end of the day.
See some of our favourite places to order cakes here. We’ve made it easy and included the address and phone numbers; call ahead and check that they have ready-made cakes available.
