#CelebrateAtHome: Celebrating mom with this easy mini Strawberry Shortcake recipe
This Mother’s Day, it is more important than ever to celebrate mom and show her how much we care by connecting her to the people and things she loves. Although we may be apart, virtual get-togethers and curbside drop-offs can bring us together.
We reached out to Rogers Ambassadors and mommy bloggers Lena Almeida (Listen2Lena) and Jaime Damak (Je Suis Une Maman) to show us how they’re celebrating Mother’s Day this year. Join them on Friday, May 8, at 2pm for an Instagram Live chat session and a special #bakedate to recreate a semi-homemade mini version of Lena’s mom’s famous Strawberry Shortcake. You can also find the recipe below.
