Flowers and Angel Food Cake for Mother's Day

I used to give her cologne or a fruit basket on Mother's Day but this time, I thought it's more meaningful to make a cake for her and cook her favorite pasta. I'm talking about the Pandan Angel Food Cake I made for my mom. The frosting may not look that smooth but it is so delicious and the cake is rich in pandan flavor and as tender as always. Now I don't feel bad anymore that I haven't found pandan paste in the stores I've been to. For the frosting, I used cream cheese, unsalted butter, imitation coconut flavor, confectioner's sugar and young coconut. I only used a cup of confectioner's sugar so I didn't have any frosting left. My cake is tall, in fact I have three layers but I always end up with leftover frosting which eventually goes to the trash because I always forget to use it so this time I made what I thought was just enough forjavascript:void(0) the cake. I toasted grated coconut as well which I sprinkled on top and on the sides. My mom loved it; our guests loved it and most of all, I love it. This should belong to my Angel Food Cake A Day Project too.

My mom loves white sauce and bacon so I cooked linguini carbonara with lots of Pecorino-Romano Cheese and she loved it. I sure pampered her today and she's all happy which the plan was anyway. Happy Mother's Day Mom and to all moms out there!
