When is Mother’s Day in the UK?
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 27 March 2022 in the UK, as it takes place on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Originally, Mothering Sunday was a date when people returned to church or their homes. Therefore, it became a family day with children and parents reuniting.
Nowadays, Mother’s Day stands for celebration where children are showing some appreciation for their mum, whether through flowers, gift cards or some DIY treats to enjoy the special day together.

Red Velvet Cupcakes
These cupcakes get their colour from the use of beetroot juice or food colouring. They are perfect for breakfast but can also be enjoyed with tea or coffee in the afternoon.
Preheat the oven to 180°C. In the first bowl, put the dry ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer and give it a whisk. In a second bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients, then add some beetroot juice or red food colouring. With your mixer running on low, add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Distribute the batter into the cupcake papers and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
For the cream cheese frosting, start off by sifting the confectioner’s sugar into a bowl. Cream the butter in a standing mixer on medium speed until it’s smooth. Add cream cheese and beat together, then add the vanilla and salt. Slowly add the sifted confectioners’ sugar in cups and mix until combined. For finishing you can decorate the cupcakes as you like.
