Celebrate Mother's Day with a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake #ad

Growing up, Mother’s Day involved a handmade card for mom, church services, lunch afterwards with my extended family and a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake at home for dessert! I have distinct memories of my dad taking me with him to the local Baskin-Robbins when I was about 8 years old to choose the ice cream cake for my mom. I remember that it was rectangular shaped and covered with icing flowers. And it had a mint chocolate chip ice cream layer because that was my favorite (I recall him angling for pralines and cream himself!) I’m sure my mom would have been happy with whatever flavor we chose because they are all good!

Mother’s Day Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake

Baskin-Robbins ice cream cakes elevate dessert to a special level. They’ve been making ice cream since 1945 and have created over 1,300 flavors! Right now Baskin-Robbins is celebrating moms with a lineup of colorful Rosette ice cream cakes that can personalized just for mom. The pink Rosette Cake features a trendy ombre design and has a special message on a white chocolate plaque. For our Mother’s Day gathering, I chose the Elegant Rosette Cake with a cascading bouquet of flowers and personal message. I love the bright colors!

Both of Baskin-Robbins’ Mother’s Day ice cream cakes can be customized to feature mom’s favorite ice cream and cake flavor combination. They can be pre-ordered in-store or through Baskin-Robbins’ online cake ordering site.

For this design I had my choice of either chocolate or vanilla cake and 16 different ice cream flavors. For our Mother’s Day cake, I chose chocolate cake and OREO® Cookies ‘n Cream, always a favorite! Baskin-Robbins’ has an extensive flavor library, including the May Flavor of the Month, Mom’s Makin’ Cookies™. Mom’s Makin’ Cookies features brown sugar flavored ice cream with chocolate chip cookie pieces, chocolate flavored chips, and a cookie dough batter flavored ribbon…doesn’t that sound decadent?!

We have a brand new Baskin-Robbins about 2 miles from our house so my little one and I stopped in to place our cake order. There was a book of cake designs and the cake decorator took down my order details. Quick and easy… and since we were there, we just had to get a cone too!

Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Pedicure Foot File

Shhh…this is what I bought for my mom and my mother-in-law. In fact, I also bought one for my husband in anticipation of Father’s Day! A good friend has this and says it’s the best, that it completely eliminates any rough spots on her feet. I’m thinking I should have bought one for myself too!

Toss in some lovely Jamberry wraps and she can give herself a pampering from the tips of her nails to the bottoms of her feet!


A Weekend Retreat

Ricardo Beverly Hills

This is one bag that stands out from the rest and you can be sure Mom won’t lose sight of it in this catchy design. I received a Roxbury 2.0 Carry-on Hardside for my recent Walt Disney World trip and can attest to the high quality of Ricardo Beverly Hills.

The Perfect Fit

Pandora Cinderella bracelet (it’s not gold, it’s really silver but the Instagram app seems to have changed the color!)

I just recently received my first Pandora bracelet and charm. It’s so stunningly beautiful, I think I’m addicted. I’ve been stalking the Disney Store link looking for my next addition.

Relaxation and Wellness

Lavender is lovely. Peppermint, refreshing. Serenity calms. Using doTerra essential oils is one of my favorite ways to wind-down at night. A drop or two on my feet and massaged in before bed and I am oh-so relaxed. Moms can use all the relaxing they can get!


A Book of Memories

Lunch in Morocco with Mom

I just returned from an epic trip to Walt Disney World with my mom. It was a whirlwind and I didn’t take nearly enough pictures, but we did capture some wonderful moments together. Consider combining your special mom moments together into a Shutterfly book. I have a dozen of these books and love going back through them to relive the memories.


If you’re a mom, what do you most want to receive for Mother’s Day? Breakfast in bed? Peace and Quiet? Share in the comments!
