Sweets for the sweet: Sweet Soul Patisserie

Mother’s Day is a special day where mothers all around the world are recognised and celebrated.

The celebration takes many forms, but for the most part it’s a day where mothers get the chance to put their feet up and be well and truly spoilt. In its modern form the holiday originated in the United States, where it is observed on the second Sunday in May. Many other countries also celebrate the holiday on this date – and indeed Mother’s Day in New Zealand this year is on 14 May.

So, we know the date, but what about how we might choose to celebrate the mothers who are dear to us? A particularly special place to do that would be at Sweet Soul Patisserie on Cashel Street with its delectable Parisian-style desserts, some created especially for Mother’s Day by talented chef Rea Scur.

These desserts are as beautiful to look at as they are to savour, and they have equally delightful names. The Mother’s Love is an irresistible combination of chocolate mousse with an infusion of hibiscus tea and dried roses on a hazelnut cake.

La Vie en Rose features figs, rosewater and pecans – and there will be others to be revealed soon as well. All the flavours are great matches for the Laurent-Ferrier champagne they offer in the elegant mezzanine champagne lounge at Sweet Soul which will be open from 8am – 8pm
on Mother’s Day.

If rather than dining-in at Sweet Soul you would like to take some of these creations away for a family gathering, or for a present to leave at your mother’s house, a tantalising takeaway box with 12 petit fours is available. See the full range of Mother’s Day desserts on the website.
