If your mama is a little too old-school for Bloody Mary brunches at Akasha, BakeLab has her in mind for Mother’s Day. The L.A. baker is throwing women’s lib to the wind and putting this holiday back into the kitchen with new “Sweet Nostalgia” gift boxes. The collection includes tiny treats that 1950’s Donna Reed-style matrons must have clung too when those little yellow pills ran out. The box contains three ribbon-wrapped oatmeal cream pies, five white chocolate bon-bons rolled in coconut, and three Devil’s food cakes bearing edible placards with vintage appliances like egg-beaters and toasters. Super-cute, even if Bloody Mary mom might smack us for resuscitating these homemaker stereotypes.
The $40 gift box can be picked up at Hollywood’s Laurel Avenue Bakery or ordered online from BakeLab.
