Pine Garden
Have a taste for something more creative this Mother’s Day: try the Poppy-corn Cake ($30 for 500g, $48 for 1kg) from Pine Garden. This popcorn-flavoured sponge cake comes with a lightly-salted cream that reminiscent of what we love about salted caramel treats — it’s that mix of the sweet-and-salty that makes it so irresistible.
