Light, fresh, fruity little cakes are perfect for Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day was first celebrated by Ann Jarvis in 1907, the day of her mother’s memorial. Ms. Jarvis later campaigned to make Mother’s Day a national holiday. 40 years later, it became an official holiday. Although Ann Jarvis did not want Mother’s Day to be commercialized, it soon became popular to give gifts and cards to the mothers we honored.

Why not bake something special for mother on Mother’s Day this year. My Mother’s Day Cupcakes are light little cakes filled with fresh fruit and topped with mounds of fluffy vanilla whipped cream. These cupcakes are simple to prepare and a healthy alternative to sugar laden desserts. Mom is sure to love these cupcakes.

The Pipka Fillable Cupcake Pan has indentations so you can fill your cupcakes with anything you desire. I thought fresh fruit would be nice in May and of course everything is better with whipped cream. Especially when you add Pipka’s Vanilla Extract to it. After I baked the cupcakes and took photos, they looked so good I just had to have one myself. I put a little Hershey’s Dark Chocolate syrup over the fruit before topping it all off with whipped cream. The chocolate syrup added another layer of deliciousness. You might want to try it!

 Mom might like to have the Pipka Fillable Cupcake Pan herself so she can bake her own versions of filled cupcakes. It’s fun to pack these up and deliver them to a neighbor or friend.  After all, it’s all about BAKE. SHARE. LOVE.
