Make a simple Oreo Chocolate Bowl Cake in the microwave with just six pieces of chocolate vanilla cream biscuits and cold milk. Microwave for slightly over a minute and now's the fun part. Dust over some icing sugar on a heart-shaped stencil, and roughly cut up some sweet citrusy mandarin oranges for a pop of colour on the side. Sweeten mum with chocolate, and balance it out with zesty fruits. Aren't you the thoughtful one?
Cute as a button, and easy as 1, 2, 3. Make regular chicken patties with just a bit of seasoning and spring onions, and fry to a delicious golden brown.

Even if it's simple, you can always find a way to make it special. And with these Ham and Cheese Bread Roll Sushi, that's what you'll achieve. Grab bread slices (does she take wholemeal or white?

The final's part the real clincher- cut cherry tomatoes into hearts and tie it to the bread using a tear of spring onion. You'll make her heart melt.
