Mother’s Day cakes at Nathaniel Reid Bakery

Go for the rosé champagne–infused Imperial Cake (made with pineapple-lychee compote and almond cake), the Fraisier (with fresh strawberries and vanilla mousseline), or the Colonsay (with hazelnut cream, milk chocolate Chantilly, and brown butter cake). Orders for the 6-inch cakes can be placed through Thursday, May 10.
