Make a fuss of mum

Mum’s, what do we say to our loved ones year in year out?

“Please don’t make a fuss on Mothers Day”. But secretly a little fuss wouldn’t be so bad, right?

So Mums, let’s be bold this year and how about giving up your Thermomix® to your loves, and let yourselves be spoilt.

This Mother’s Day, make a fuss of Mum with all her favourite brunch dishes

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to show the mum’s in your life just how much you appreciate them.

Perhaps you’ve got a full day of events planned, or maybe you’re just going to invite your Mum, Grandma or Wife to put her feet up and relax. However you’re planning to celebrate, a relaxed brunch at home is a great way to start the day!

Brunch can be as simple or extravagant as you like, and you can make sure you spoil your Mum by making her favourite dishes. Start with a fresh juice or fruit smoothie in bed; we’ve got some great energy-boosting drinks on Cookidoo®.

Then, surprise her with the feast you’ve prepared!

From fresh breads prepared the night before then baked in the morning, to fluffy pancakes and buttery homemade pastries; whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it on Cookidoo®.

So, let Thermomix® do the work while you concentrate on spending time with your Mum.

If you’re laying the table for brunch, add a vase of fresh flowers and the best plate for her to make the day feel more special. Most importantly, don’t let Mum help with any cleaning up!

Are you looking for an extra special gift for Mother's Day?

While flowers and chocolates are always appreciated, taking the time to prepare a homemade gift is a lovely way to show you care.

Thanks to your Thermomix®, making your own edible gifts is easy. Get ahead by preparing a batch and not only will you be ready for Mother’s Day, you’ll also have gifts on hand for upcoming birthdays and special occasions.

If your Mum loves afternoon tea, try whipping up a batch of homemade fruit jam for scones. If she’s a cheese lover, a savoury chutney makes a great accompaniment to crackers (which you can make as well!). Simply search Cookidoo® for homemade gift inspiration.

Put your gifts into pretty mason jars or containers, and decorate with ribbons and labels. Rather than buying a shop-brought card, try writing a letter or poem that explains how much your Mum means to you, and attach it to your gift.

Get back to your nostalgic roots

Remember when mum served a warming beef cobbler at dinner time? Or when Nan gave you a bowl of her poached pears (with an extra large serve of ice cream)? Yes, those were the days! Well why not show her you can whip up something similar and evoke those memories of old?

Every special occasion needs a cake!

This Mother’s Day, treat your Mum with some cute cupcakes, a classic sponge, or if you’re feeling confident, a show-stopping, celebration cake. Thermomix® makes it easy to prepare even the most impressive sweets.

You can grind icing sugar in your Thermomix®, adding vanilla or orange peel for flavoured versions, then decorate cupcakes with buttercream icing in beautiful pastel colours.

Our Thermomix® Royal Icing dries to a glossy finish, and is a great choice if you’re decorating biscuits. Either colour with food colouring then pipe patterns and words, or simply spoon over your Giant doughnuts and serve. For these recipes and more, search Cookidoo®.

So, as Mum raises her fork to her mouth, don’t forget to tell her to ‘be careful, Mum, this meal is full of love’.

Really, in the end this is what makes mum the happiest. When we don’t listen to her (well, on this occasion) and make a fuss anyway!

Who knows, this may even evolve from a secret treat this year; into a family tradition in years to come. Ever expanding on your culinary repertoire with Thermomix®.
