What better way to say “I love you, mom,” than with a sweet treat. 

Families across the country celebrated Mother’s Day Sunday in both commercialized and homemade fashions. 

Café Hope in Prairie du Chien was just one local business that participated in creating the quick and simple kind of gifts for many to present their mothers on their big day. Decorators Connie Christoph and Leah Strong worked meticulously in the Sharing Spaces Kitchen in the days leading up to Mother’s Day, preparing beautiful edible flower-covered cupcakes for the café. The colors and floral varieties were enticing.

After the cupcakes were baked, Christoph said, they filled and decorated about 100 a day, including not only the flowery ones but also their popular turtle, peanut butter, lemon and other flavors. It was good preparation for the crew with the busy spring season upon them. 

Editor’s note: What did you get your mom for Mother’s Day? Even if it was just a big hug, we’d love to hear about it. Find this post on the Courier Press’ Facebook page, and comment there with your own story.
