Being a mother is not the most glamourous of roles. When I’m at work, I’m usually in quite a presentable state. On weekends however, I’m always busy running around trying to keep up with the kids so I don’t bother to spend time brushing my hair or even dressing up. My weekend uniform is usually that of a t-shirt and yoga pants. But I love that the kids keep me young at heart even though I don’t always feel very young and energetic!
My mother takes care of the kids on most weekdays and they are a real handful so she usually looks harassed and disheveled. She was a bit embarrassed about taking a photo with the cake in what she claimed to be an unkempt state. I think she looks pretty good! Swensen’s Heart of Youth cake is perfect for this relatively young grandmother. Vanilla fudge ice-cream infused with marine collagen keeps her youthful and ensures that her skin and bones stay healthy!
Since motherhood is all about the kids and not about the glamour, here’s a picture of me at my most unglamourous. Show your appreciation for your mother, mother-in-law, or even your grandmother this Mother’s Day with Heart of Youth: a blush pink heart-shaped cake with sugar flowers and a white chocolate crown to show her who the Queen of your heart is!
Heart of Youth is priced at $51 (excluding GST) and no advanced ordering is required. Available at all Swensen’s and Earle Swensen’s outlets from 23rd April to 10th May 2015 (while stocks last).
I have a Heart of Youth cake worth $51 to be won by one lucky reader!
