Baking a gorgeous cake is a very effective way to say “I love you, Mom.” Here, nine cake recipes for Mother’s Day.

1. Chocolate Soufflé Cakes with Vanilla-Thyme Ice Cream
These soft, chocolaty sponge cakes are a cross between angel food cake and a firm soufflé.

2. Triple-Cheese Cheesecake with Amaretti Crust
This killer cheesecake has an ethereally light, creamy texture and fantastic crunchy crust made from honey graham crackers and amaretti cookies.

3. Mom’s Chocolate Cake
This is a real old-fashioned American chocolate layer cake. It's very moist, very chocolaty, a snap to make and best baked the day before serving. 

4. Towering Coconut Layer Cake
This cake couldn't be more traditional: four layers of rum-brushed yellow cake filled and frosted with a light and airy, coconut-scented meringue-buttercream.

5. Caramel Layer Cake
This impressive cake is encased in a fudge-like caramel frosting. 

6. Ricotta-Orange Pound Cake with Prosecco Strawberries
Strawberries, sprinkled with Prosecco and a little sugar, are a pretty accompaniment to Giada De Laurentiis's wonderful, moist, orange-infused cake.

7. Giant Black-and-White Layer Cake
This is a giant, crowd-pleasing cake, layering light, white cake with fluffy, rich chocolate ganache.

8. Brown-Butter Layer Cake
Seattle chef Tom Douglas uses brown butter for an indulgent nutty flavor in this fun twist on a classic white cake.

9. Pear and Sour Cream Coffee Cake
To dress up a moist, delicious coffee cake, F&W's Justin Chapple adds sweet pears and crunchy nuts to the generous layer of cinnamony streusel topping.
