Trivia: Do you know why it has been a tradition to give cakes on Mother’s Day? Back in the day, a European Christian event called: “Mothering Sunday.” The event took place three weeks before Easter Sunday, where parishioners were to return to their “mother churches” where they got baptized or raised. And the highlight of that event is a Simnel cake (cake with marzipan), traditionally given by servant girls to their mothers when they returned home on Mothering Sunday.
