Sweet Treats for Mama



Mother’s Day is Sunday, just around the corner!  We have some delicious treats in stock, this week only and while supplies last, that would make special gifts for Mom.

We suggest:

Robert Lambert Mother’s Day Fruitcakes, $34.99/16 oz: This cake is much like the Winter Fruitcake that we carry for the Holidays, but with a few substitutions in the lineup of fruits and nuts. Walnuts instead of hazelnuts, and a decidedly tropical turn with dried pineapple and mango added to the cherries and nectarines, all plumped in papaya and guava nectar. Yuzu (Japanese lime) and Celebes papeda (a kind of pommelo) peels join Meyer lemon, Rangpur lime and blood orange peels  for a citrusy kick.  The batter is similar to the White Fruitcake, but with papaya and guava nectar instead of orange juice, and scented with cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla.  And finally, the soaking cognac is infused with the rare, fragrant Shekwasha citrus peel. Topped with a beautiful spring flower, this fruit cake is sure to banish all thoughts of cedar boughs and holly!

Chocolat Moderne Unconditional Love, $14.99/5pc clear round available in white or dark chocolate and $39.99/12pc coral box available in dark chocolate: Thank Mom for all her years of unconditional love with this truffle collection.  Assortments include combinations of the following:
