Mother’s Day Desserts

How do you choose the perfect Mother’s Day dessert? You need to know what mom loves, of course, but I think you also need something beautiful and sophisticated.

I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite Mother’s Day desserts, which hit all kinds of flavor profiles with the beauty and sophistication moms deserve in recipes that are pretty simple to make.

And if your mom loves to bake, cakes in particular, you could always give her the gift of baking together with my new book, Zoë Bakes Cakes, where I dive deep on everything cake—loaves, layers, bundts, and everything that goes with them.
