You’ve got the Mother’s Day gifts and the Mother’s Day cards. You picked out some movies to watch with mom. What’s left? How about Mother’s Day desserts. It’s only fair to give the maternal figures in your life a treat as sweet as they’ve been to you.
Lucky for you, TikTok has several delicious recipes that are described in just 60-second videos so you can figure out exactly what Mother’s Day treat is best without it requiring endless scrolling. Whether you’re ready to bake from scratch (try the blueberry lemon ricotta doughnuts below) or prefer a no-bake option (like a blackberry and lemon cheesecake), FoodTok has the dessert for you.
Give yourself a challenge in the kitchen with creme brûlée, or keep it simple with some cannoli dip that the whole family can dig into. For a dairy-free recipe, try out peach dumplings as a new take on peach cobbler. If Mom needs a vegan option, the cotton candy grapes sorbet is perfect. Whatever your palette calls for, a dessert is a perfect way to cap off the evening.
Make one of these mother’s day desserts, below.
Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Doughnuts
These tangy yet sweet doughnuts are the perfect treat for your Mother’s Day menu. The doughnut recipe is delightfully simple to bake, and the whipped ricotta topping will add a velvety smooth finish to this treat.
Ready for a trickier recipe? This Creme Brûlée is sure to impress. Don’t worry, no blowtorch is needed for these custards because this TikTok recipe found a home kitchen-friendly alternative. Indulge and unwind at the end of a long Mother’s Day.
This dessert is a mix of delightful features. Flaky phyllo dough, sweet orange blossom syrup, and a nutty pistachio filling combine to make an unforgettable dessert. The nut mixture adds some spices to balance out the sweet syrup. Warning: Your hands might get messy eating this treat.
Banana Pudding Tiramisu
A new twist on a classic. Swap the lady fingers for Nilla cookies dipped in espresso, then add mascarpone pudding and bananas. This recipe elevates your typical banana pudding into something a little more unexpected.
Peach season is fast approaching, and these peach dumplings are to die for. They’re also so simple to make, with an easy sweet cinnamon filling, fresh peaches, and crescent rolls. Let the fruit be the star of this dish.
FoodTok also has you covered with Mother’s Day strawberry ideas. Skip the store-bought chocolate-covered strawberries. Instead, go for for these strawberries with a cheesecake filling and graham cracker topping for a creamy dessert. If you’re really missing the chocolate, feel free to finish these with a chocolate drizzle.
Grilled Peaches and Pound Cake
As May starts to kick off summer, bring back grilled fruit with this dessert. Grilled peaches and vanilla gelato are a match made in heaven (and feel free to swap with nectarines if peaches aren’t your thing).
Mini Apple Pies
These individual apple pies make for a fun recipe to bake as a family. This TikTok recipe suggests getting creative with the dough design on top of the pie, so writing out “I Love You Mom” in pie crust could be a cute way to end the day.
Layers on layers on layers in this strawberry crêpe cake. Thin, moist layers of crêpe are matched with homemade whipped cream and strawberries, topped with more strawberries and powdered sugar. The resulting cake looks as though it’s from a storybook.
Pastelitos de Guayaba

Sweet Rose Pull-Apart Bread
This recipe is even better than getting flowers for Mom. Braid together soft, squishy dough into a beautiful rose shape and serve it to her hot and fresh. Don’t forget to add the butter.
Apple Rose Puff Pastry
For another, slightly simpler rose-inspired dish, try this apple rose puff pastry. Simple apple slices form beautiful flowers, then add whatever Mom’s favorite jam is to the inside of the pastry to give it an extra personal flair.

If you’re looking for something shareable, try this four-ingredient cannoli dip. This TikTok recipe had the brilliant idea of use a sugar cone as a bowl and a broken one as chips for dipping. It’s like eating cookie dough, but even better.
Like we said, nothing wrong with a classic. If Mom is a coffee fan, this is the perfect dessert for her. It can also chill for a while in the fridge in case you’re not ready to serve right away.
We’d be remiss not to include an Emily Mariko pick in our Mother’s Day baking ideas. She’s all about the presentation, so use this beautifully designed berry cake as inspiration for your favorite yellow cake recipe. Add a dusting of powdered sugar to top it off.
Sour Cherry Buns
These sour cherry buns are a tangy, delectable dessert. The use of rapid rise yeast makes this a super quick from-scratch recipe. Topped with cherry lemon cream cheese frosting, they’re the perfect finish for the evening.
These indulgent cream puffs are a must for Mother’s Day. This TikTok recipe focuses on the dough, so try whatever feels best for the filling (homemade whipped cream, ice cream, you name it). They might get messy to eat, but they’re so worth it.
Butterscotch Spice Crinkle Cookies
Looking for unique Mother’s Day cookie ideas? Try these butterscotch spice crinkle cookies. These are particularly sweet cookies, but the ginger gives it a low heat and spice and the powdered sugar topping ties it all together.
