Stunning Edible Gifts Mom Will Love

Here's a sweet idea: Give Mom a delicious treat that's sure to make her smile. Instead of the traditional card or flowers, indulge Mom with a pretty food gift. We have easy ideas for dressing up purchased pies, putting together cozy tea kits, and even single-serve cake jars. It's time to show Mom you care with something sweet.

Pretty Pie Topper

This Chocolate Satin Pie from Marie Callender's is the perfect Mother's Day gift. It's filled with decadent chocolate, whipped topping, and chocolate curls, and since it's made for sharing, Mom won't feel any guilt going in for that second slice. 

To create the festive decoration, print the pie topper from our pattern link below. Cut around the banner, leaving a small white outline to make it pop. Cut out the heart, and attach it to the banner using a glue dot for dimension. Add lollipop sticks or striped straws to each end, attaching them using gue dots.
