Last minute gift idea for Mother’s Day | WEEKEND WIND UP #35

I’m really bad when it comes to getting presents on time.
It’s always about a week after a person’s birthday that I get the good ideas.
It’s always after Christmas that I come across the erfect present for my father or the inspiration for a gift for my brothers.
And it’s always the day before Mother’s Day that I realise I still haven’t found the perfect gift for my mother.
That obviously always happens late Saturday afternoon when the shops are closed and all you can get is ice cream or beer from the local petrol station (as there aren’t any 24/7 stores where I live).
So this year I decided to bake a perfect heart-shaped cake for Mother’s Day.
If you are like me, haven’t found the perfect gift yet and maybe want to surprise your Mum with a simple yet beautiful and delicious cake, quickly head down to the grocery store (or petrol station) and make sure to get
  • butter
  • eggs
  • sugar
  • vanilla essence/vanilla flavoured sugar
  • lemons
  • flour
  • starch
  • baking powder
  • custard
  • strawberries
  • single cream

  1. Haha, yeah, that’s usually my reaction to birthdays, Christmas, Easter and all other occassions that require you to get a present or at least “bring something”, too.

  3. I’m bad with getting presents on time as well. Sometimes I don’t even remember until the day before and then I’m like OHSHITIFORGOTITS[insert-occasion-here]TOMORROW…

    The cake sounds like a good idea though.🙂
