Edible Mother’s Day Gift Ideas You Should Steal From Pinterest
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Before you call up the trusted neighborhood florist or rush off to get her a last-minute gift, take heed of our advice: Give your mom (or grandmother, or the other mother-like figure in your life) a present that comes from the heart, made with your own two hands. Lucky for you, we’ve already searched for those extra-special homemade gifts that are sure to put a smile on her face, while also keeping her full on Mother’s Day. These personalized baked sentiments and edible floral designs are far more creative than your average grocery store greeting cards, bouquet of flowers, and fruit arrangements. Most importantly, she’ll love it even more knowing you created it. Here, 18 good-to-eat sweets and treats courtesy of the crafts mecca and recipe hub, Pinterest. It’ll be hard to just pin down one, but consider Mother's Day conquered!
