3. Sweet delights

Mother’s Day is a good excuse as any to indulge in something sweet, so why not head over to Studio City where, for mothers who enjoy a sweet treat or two, you are spoiled for choice. The most creative is perhaps a raspberry caramel cake in the shape of a handbag. There’s also blossoming chocolate flowers that look the part and taste even better. Also, if you like macarons, you can’t afford not to stop by Pierre Hermé Paris at Studio City. They’re hands down the best macarons we’ve tried and this Mother’s Day they have the exclusive jardin parfumé macaron which we’re told is fragrant, discrete and unique – combining the taste of rose and jasmine in a gradual taste experience. There are a variety of different macaron gift boxes available too.
