Valentine’s Day is over and done with for another year, and the next big ‘holidays’ are St Patrick’s Day on the 17th of March and Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday of Lent in the UK (which can be as early as the 1st of March and as late as the 4th of April). As a result, we are planning on doing some special themed cupcakes for both of these days!
There will be products going up shortly on the website for both of these so keep an eye out for them!
You never know, you may end up with the luck of the Irish on your side when ordering the St Patrick’s Day cupcakes! You may end up winning the lottery! You’ll just have to keep an eye out for those Leprechauns though, you don’t want them thinking you’ve taken their gold. But if you catch one, they’ve got to grant you three wishes, so you best know what you’re going to wish for and make sure you use them wisely!!
As for the Mother’s Day cupcakes, you can choose between a standard box of 12 themed cupcakes, or you can choose a Cupcake bouquet, which is where the cupcakes are arranged (and decorated!!) to look like a bouquet of flowers!
The modern Mother’s Day holiday we know today was first celebrated in 1908 when a lady named Anna Jarvis, the founder of the holiday in the United States, held a memorial for her own mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. The church was incorporated as the International Mother’s Day Shrine on the 15th of May in 1962. The Shrine was constructed in 1873 and was designated as a National Historic Landmark on the 5th of October in 1992.
