Nothing says, "I love you, Mom" like something sweet baked from scratch. This Mother's Day, treat her to an assortment of homemade cakes, pastries, cookies and other baked wonders to show her just how special she is.
Don't let the number of steps in this recipe fool you —it's easy to assemble. The cake bakes up high and fluffy, and the berries add a fresh fruity flavor. Cream cheese is a good substitute if you don't have mascarpone cheese handy. —Carol Witczak, Tinley Park, Illinois
