If we think back to what really made our mums smile growing up, it was always those times we made a little extra effort, whether that was the handmade card when we were six or baking her something delicious as an adult. Go the extra mile this year with our ideas for an afternoon tea to remember
Whether you speak to your mum every day or just couple of times a year, remembering to tell her how much you appreciate her can sometimes get forgotten. Why not show her rather than tell her this year by creating an afternoon tea worthy of the special woman in your life. We've got an array of tasty recipes on the Cook with M&S app that cover everything from cookies to tarts, but, if you aren't feeling up to making a sweet feast all by yourself, there's always our Food to Order service to take the stress out of cooking from scratch.
We recommend our light olive oil and grape cake below – great with a cup of tea – but, if a sweet shortcut is right up your street instead, explore our online range of cakes, pastries and finger food and start planning your Mother's Day celebration.

Pinch of salt
