Chew on That poses a question to food bloggers each month in a feature called the Monthly Mouthful. This month, they asked, "Do you plan on cooking for your mom this Mother's Day? Please tell us why it's such a special dish and why your mom is so great!"
Gilli from So So Simple Food responded that on Mother's Day in her family, it's the men who cook: "All the women in our family are Mothers so it's boys (except for my husband, who can only cook toast) on the case." This makes sense to me - just because you can cook well doesn't mean you should always have do the cooking for every event. As an example, Gigi of Gigi Cakes recently blogged about a birthday cake she made for her own birthday! While the cake looked amazing, many people left comments questioning why she had to make her own cake.
Jessie from Cakespy wrote that her mom is too far away to cook for, but if she could do it, she would make
her mom's famous silver cake, "a beautiful and delightfully moist layer cake topped with a creamy buttercream frosting." I love the idea that someone who bakes all kinds of mouthwatering creations still loves the cake her mom makes and would choose to make it as a testament to her.
