A few days ago I realised it was my Mothers birthday but too late for me to post a present and card so emergency fix was needed, fast!
My Mam lives 200 miles away so the night before we baked a rich carrot cake topped with home made icing (Artwork done by my Son), then placed it safe in a container for the next day's journey...
...I drove straight to my Mams house after work, arriving in the evening with a card and cake delivered in person. Good move, she was really happy, I wasn't in trouble
The 200 mile drive for work in the morning wasn't the best but hey, it was soooo worth it!!

Great looking cake! I bet your mom loved it. Your son is on his way to being the next cake boss!! I did something similar to that once for mothers day. The day before mothers day I had a date and afterwards I drove the 200 miles home and had breakfast ready for my mom when she woke up. She was very surprised. Fortunately my dad was in on it otherwise I might have been shot "breaking" into the house in the middle of the night. Oh the crazy things we do for our parents!

That looks delicious. I remember when i tried to make my first cheescake. It tasted very wrong. I haven't tried again since....
