Come to think of it, how often have we all been told by our one and only heroine – or heroines for some – not to make an unnecessary purchase even if it’s on the occasion of a national Mother’s Day? It’s true how showing appreciation and reciprocation to our dearest mum is rather an everyday must-do, but we also couldn’t possibly deny how, “Sorry mum, I just ordered you a four-serving artisanal cake”, is likewise one of our little ways to express the unconditional love and gratitude.
Whether it’s Bangkok’s talk-of-the-town molten fountain chocolate cake with a tender taste or a guilty-free mochi cake filled with dairy-free almond chocolate pudding as a healthier alternative, any of these cake options would be a perfect excuse to pamper your mum in light of this very special day. And here are some of the city’s most-loved cakes to order on Mother’s Day 2021.

One of Bangkok’s most-seen, name-customised cakes on social media, Pecann Bangkok, is well thought of for its signature ‘Brookie cake’ – a half-cookie-half-brownie chocolate cake – that has stolen hundreds and thousands of hearts and taken the social by storm since its launch at the end of last year. With the cake’s finest ingredients, such as AOP butter, couverture dark chocolate and pasteurised fresh cream, this is certainly a cake that will fill your home with an infused scent of warmth while reading your mum a personalised Mother’s Day 2021 card that also comes together with the cake – and candles too!

There’s only one reason for it. It’s all down to the cake’s rich, best-quality ingredients like the finest Belgian cocoa with high amounts of cocoa butter, as well as exceptional techniques of which can only be demonstrated through the cake itself.
