Happy Mother’s Day!!!!

So are you guys all set for the beautiful cards, breakfast in bed, and warm hugs? Well, this is the time to enjoy all the attention in the world. It’s ok even if it’s just for a day.

For the Mother’s Day special post, I chose a beautiful cake by Marcela Valladolid of Food Network. I have tweaked the recipe a little bit and covered the sides with whipped cream and coconut flakes . It’s a Caramel Mango and Coconut Upside Down Cake. I loved how airy and flavourful this cake is. Packed with the gooey deliciousness of caramelised mango and coconut flakes, this cake really is worth trying. It will definitely leave you spellbound.
