Celebrating Mother’s Day in Foodie Style
Let them Eat Cake
If your mum’s a bit of a cake connoisseur, it’s time to give Paul a call. From 18 to 22 March you can grab a beautifully decorated Mousse aux framboises with layers of vanilla sponge, crumble and raspberries from their bakeries across Dubai. You can even get a personalised message on the top. Job done.
INFO: Paul, The Dubai Mall, 04 339 8036, plus other locations across the UAE.
Sweet Treats from Candelite
Butter up your mum this Mother’s Day with cute bites from Candelite. If you want something extra-fancy, try the chocolate boxes stashed in animal print handbags. Too bling? What about Rococo Bee Bars, artisan chocolates from the UK infused with Arabic spices, basil, Persian lime and rose otto? For something lighter? Try their biscuits and meringues by La Sablesienne from France, which are prepared using heritage recipes of a legendary French biscuiterie. Perfect for picky mums.

Too busy to whip up breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day this year? Let Baker & Spice do it for you. Come 18 March, all you need to do is grab one of their super tasty breakfast boxes, from Dhs98, and you’re good to go. Choose from a selection of freshly baked all butter croissants (plus almond and chocolate), home-made jam and marmalade, French AOC butter, fresh fruit salad, muffins and freshly squeezed juice, all beautifully presented.

Dim Sum for Mum
Ping Pong in The Dubai Mall have made Mother’s Day that bit more manageable, if you can’t persuade anyone to look after the kids for you.
