Mother's Day Cakes and Cupcakes

Mother's Day, celebrated on the second Sunday in May, was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 to accomplish her mother's dream of making a celebration for all mother's around the world. It was finally recognized as a national holiday in 1914 and known as a "hallmark holiday" today. Mother's Day is one of the biggest days of the year for flowers and greeting cards, so much so that the Flower Exchange paid all of Anna's bills because of the results of her efforts. Anna was not pleased with the holiday being so commercialized and was eventually ridiculed and regarded as a lunatic! Not long after she was committed to an asylum and died in 1948 regretting the holiday she had created.

We believe most mother's are thanking Anna every year for her creation and even father's because not long after father's day was created! Now mother's day is celebrated with other women in the family including grandmother and great grandmother, even daughters.

Mother's Day is Sunday May 8th 2011

This day is an excellent opportunity to show mother's how much we love them and appreciate the things they do for us all year round.
