So what would YOU be willing to pay for these delectable cakes?

The bottom one is US $24.10 including delivering in and around Colombo.

The top one, with the exquisite daffodils, is US $17.15.

Ah! For Sri Lankan prices.

I have, over the years, sent at least 20 Kapruka cakes to relatives in Sri Lanka. They were always a hit — even in a family known over the years for their cake baking and decorating prowess.

I wish I could have Kapruka cakes in the U.S. I understand the prices would have to be different. But, I would pay $75 for either of these cakes — though, of course, I would NOT touch a piece.

That they now celebrate Mother’s Day in Sri Lanka makes me smile. It is a new holiday. We never had it when we were growing up. It is all the Sri Lankans living in the West — wanting to pay homage to their mothers in Sri Lanka. It is cute. My mother, adoptive at that, has been gone since 1992. I get a feeling that mothers in Sri Lanka get treated on various Mother’s Day depending on where their offspring reside. So if a mother has kids in both U.K. and the U.S. she will get to celebrate two separate Mother’s Days; March 15 & May 10 (this year).
