Celebrate Mother’s Day with Emicakes

April 29, 2015

Sponsored

This year, Mother’s Day celebrations were brought forward on my mom’s side of the family because Emicakes has been so kind to gift us this lovely ‘Best Mum’ cake, packed with delicious Premium D24 Durian filling. As expected, Emicakes has once again delivered satisfaction to our taste buds!


‘Best Mum’ Cake, $63.10

This simple yet elegant cake had been carefully crafted by the designers at Emicakes, and the meaning behind this timeless design couldn’t be more beautiful; It’s to represent the timeless love and beauty of our Moms. How thoughtful of the designers!

This particular cake we received, weighing at about 600g (15cm), was just the right size for our family of about 8-10 adults after a meal. Nothing was left behind and everyone had a good slice of the heavenly durian cake – Nakayla included! I have found another durian lover in the family! YAY!


She had the flower decor too. Haha!

Besides the ‘Best Mum’ cake, the designers at Emicakes also came up with a different kind of flower bouquet (my favourite kind) to gift our moms – a cupcake bouquet!


‘Flowers for Mum’, $45.90

The seven cupcakes in this beautiful cupcake bouquet is pretty much the perfect number for my family. Two each for me and the children, and one for Sean. Haha! There’s also no need to argue who got a bigger slice. Everyone gets the same standard cupcake size 😀

Aside from the perfect portion and how splendid it looks, the cupcake bouquet is absolutely divine to taste!

The luscious chocolate cupcakes are filled with delectable toffee caramel cream, and topped with my favourite cream cheese! Honestly, there couldn’t possibly be a better combination. Just thinking about it is making me salivate again!

Only one point to note though, if you plan on getting this set of cupcake bouquet… Do not put them in a fridge that’s too cold! All the fondant used in this lovely cupcake bouquet will melt. My poor leaves melted beyond recognition 🙁 But hey, they still taste great! That’s really all that matters to me 😛


I sure had a sweet, sweet Mother’s Day, all thanks to Emicakes 😀

  1. Oooooh the ‘Best Mom’ cake with durian filling sounds so yummy! And so pretty in pink too! I’ll definitely go for this one, probably for my godma, who loves durians. 🙂

  2. Definitely the ‘Best Mum’ Cake because my mummy is a durian lover! She will definitely love this yummy cake!

  3. I will choose the “best mom” cake, simply because my mom is the best, and she loves durian! Furthermore, the cake is in a sweet pink colour, it will definitely excite my little girl to bits! And to add on, my whole family love durian!!

    1. Hi Ruby, I’m delighted to know your whole family loves durian, especially your mom! Thank you for participating. Good luck!

  4. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Mother’s Day has always been a family affair for us to express our thanks and gratitude to mum but I hope to make this year’s celebration especially meaningful for her because the sad news of her cancer relapse is overshadowing all of us…

    1. Oh dear. I hope your mom will win in her fight with cancer, Janette. In the meantime, stay strong together as a family! And, good luck, in everything 🙂

  5. ‘Best Mum’ Cake becuase the size is just right for the whole family, my mum, my wife can both enjoy it with me and the kids

  6. I will choose the ‘Best Mum’ Cake for my dearest mum cause everyone in our family loves DURIAN!!! And it’s in such a lovely design! Perfect for Mother’s Day celebration =)

    1. Hi June, thank you for participating! It’s great to know your whole family loves durian! Good luck 🙂

  7. I would chose the “Best Mum” Cake! My mum has dedicate all her life looking after the family and even after we grown up, she looked after our kids. She’s a very simple woman who ask for nothing else than us being healthy and happy. She’s the best!

    1. Hi MummyEd, the cupcake bouquet is indeed different, in a very good way! Thanks for participating. Good luck!

  8. I’d love to get ‘Flowers for Mum’.

    I’m sure it’ll bring a smile to my daughter. And, that’ll make her mom (that’s me) and her mom’s mom (grandma) super pleased.

    1. Hi Catherine, awww! How sweet of you to think of your daughter when it’s your special day! Thank you for participating! Good luck!

  9. My mama would like the “best mum” cake! Its durian, its so pretty.. what more can we ask for! Hope to win this for my mama!!

  10. Durian cake for Mum as she simply loves and craves for durian all the time ! She will be so happy if she gets this 🙂

  11. I would like to choose the ‘Best Mum’ Cake because my mum is the best protector against school bully, best teacher, best chef, best companion, and best multi tasker.

    1. Hello fellow Mabel! Nice to see someone sharing the same name as me on my blog! 😀 Thank you for participating. Good luck!

    1. Hi Kathy, awww! How awesome to be able to spend Mother’s Day with both your mom and mom-in-law! Thank you for participating. Good luck!

  12. I would like to choose the ‘Best Mum’ Cake because it has been a pain bringing me up, but no one else could have done it better than her. The truth about growing up is as one grows up, one tends to forget our parents are growing old. Unfortunately, the most precious thing parents can give to their children is time. I cherish every single moment with her as time spent together is so simple, yet so hard to come by. I can never be more thankful to have her with me, someone who will keep giving without expecting anything in return. She is none other than my dearest mother. I hope this lovely cake will make her smile.

    1. Hi Shirley, what you say is true. As we grow older, so are our parents. As a mom myself, I watch my children grow and they remind me of how old I am now (not that old yet, but I feel very old)! Spend more time with your mom and create more memories with her! Thank you for participating. Good luck!

  13. Best Mom’ cake with durian filling is defintely my choice of cake that i will want to give my mum because she love durian cake and its in pretty pink ! so feminine 😉 I
    love my mum and i am always proud of her because she is so special inside my heart.. my fondest memory that i have is seeing how my mum encourage me when i repeated my Tertiary education. She said no matter how you fare, dont give up because there is always a path leading to success eventually. Taking longer time doesnt matter as long as you you reach your final destination eventually. She is the best mum ever.All these 27 yrs, she has given up her full time career to become a housewife. Its in fact a drastic change in her personal life. Networking of friends has become lesser and not earning any income is what she gave up for just for her children. She believes that the kids should come first and she has the full responsibility as a mum to wholly take care of them and send them to university. I admire her thinking and selfless act for being such a wonder women who is willing to put down everything and be a housewife because not every career women can does that ! My mum is defintely someone that i look upon to ! hope to win the cake for her to celebrate mother’s day so as to reward herself for devoting herself to the family for the past 27 yrs. She is defintely someone who i will like to look upon even when i am old…

    1. Hi Yvette! Thank you for sharing such a touching story of your mom! Indeed, repeating a year in school is no big deal as long as one doesn’t give up. I’m a repeat student myself, back when I was in secondary school. It’s good to know that your mom has been nothing but a good motivational force and inspiration for you. Thanks for your participation. Good luck!

  14. I choose cupcake bouquet because it’s more unique, I believe my mum will wow upon receiving such cake. Round /square and heart shape cake we often see this is more creative.

    1. Hi Rosalind, this is really creative in my opinion too! I like flowers, but I prefer food so I guess this is perfect for moms like myself. Haha! I can have my flowers + cake and eat them all! Hehe. Thank you for participating. Good luck!

  15. Definitely the ‘Best Mum’ Cake, my mum loves durian cakes especially from emi cakes and the cake looks so pretty and elegant!!! Pretty in pink!

  16. Durian cake cos it’s my mum’s favourite and as a traditional mum, she would prefer the traditional round cake

    1. Hi Phyllis, my mom prefers cakes to be in the traditional round shape too! Something about being whole (圆 yuan), if I’m not wrong. Thank you for participating! Good luck!

  17. I want to win a ‘Best Mum’ cake specially for Mum because she works tirelessly days and nights to ensure that the family are warmly clothed and well fed. Wake up early in the morning with sleepy eyes just to prepare breakfast before we are off for work, so that we don’t skip the most important meal of the day. Despite the endless and exhausting household chores; cooking that made her surrounded with oil, heat and sweat, washing that made her hand dry and flaky due to constant soaking in detergent and marketing at wee hours when we are soundly asleep to ensure she gets the best and freshest for the family, but Mum has never grumble, instead she always put a smile on her face. Seeing how she sacrifices for the family, tears uncontrollably welled from my eyes. Mum’s selfless and unconditional love for the family is just like a picture that worth a thousand words, which can’t be described literally only through words. I wholeheartedly wish her good health and always stay by our side. Hope to bring a smile on Mum’s face and surprise her with a delightfully pleasing D24 Durian cake and share with family this Mother’s Day.

    1. Hi Gavin, thank you for sharing with me your mom’s love for her family. It’s very touching!

      With regards to her dry and flaky hands as a result of constant washing, by any chance, could she have a form of hand eczema like I do? Perhaps try a different brand of detergent like Method (Sea Minerals)? This particular dish soap has been good to my skin so far. Not an ad, and I’m not sponsored by them. This is honest to goodness sharing of good products that I swear by and I recommend it to anyone I know who might have the same problem as I do 🙂 You can read more here in my earlier sharing: http://amazinglystill.com/2015/03/baking-mode-now-on/

      Thank you for participating and good luck!

      1. Hi Mabel, thanks for sharing with me this wonderful product. Will get for Mum and try it out and hopefully resolve this issue.

        1. Hi Gavin, I hope it works for your mom too! I completely understand the pain she’s going through with the dry and flaky skin on her hands, and still having to do all the washing and cleaning. Let me know if it works for her, ok?
