Son and Daughter Day 2022

Treat them on the 11th August

Kids, they do try our patience sometimes, but they can be wonderful too. It’s hard not to forgive them for whatever they’ve done when they’re being lovely. Sometimes, in the midst of work, paying bills, and day to day life we don’t give ourselves time to take a step back and appreciate our sons and daughters.

National Son and Daughter Day is a day dedicated to love, to take a moment out of our busy lives to show them how much we care about them. And because it’s in the middle of the kids' holidays, it’s the perfect time to give them a treat, and there’s no better treat than cake for your son and/or daughter. We have a lot of cakes to choose from, we’re sure that they will love whatever you choose. Here are some of the options available:
