ON THE MENU: A Mother’s Day Gift Your Mum Will Actually Want!

Share this!

Cookies have to be one of the cutest ways to tell someone you love them and now two of our favourite women have collaborated on a Cookie Mix you’ll want to know about.

Plus… it’s possibly the best Mother’s Day present your mum could wish for, after all, she has everything, right (meaning you!)? It’s the dream-team, Karen Walker x The Caker Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Cookie Mix. Ummm… what?

All you need to add is an egg, or equivalent measure of egg replacement aquafaba – yep, there’s such a thing – and some delish peanut butter for a beautiful batch of homemade cookies – they even come with the infamous KW Runaway girl stencil.

Jordan Rondel from The Caker loves this gorgeous new – and dare we say it – more unusual collab, saying:

Like everything that Karen does, the collaboration has been very hands-on. We worked together to develop this recipe that we felt was perfect for Mother’s Day. It had to be a cookie because, to me, they’re such a natural, sincere way of sharing your love. The great comfort when your house fills up with the heady aroma of them baking and watching them transform in the oven. Being unable to wait until they’re cool so sharing them around while they’re still warm. When Karen and I began sharing those memories, that was the springboard for our inspiration.


This Cookie Mix will be only be around for one month so no time to chill on it – I’m def gonna get mine. And not gonna lie… my mum is in Spain for three months, so this is all for me, me, meeeee!

Karen Walker loves the nostalgia that cookies creates, saying:

Cookies are often the first thing a mum teaches her child to bake, aren’t they? This project is about seeing that tradition being reciprocated. We wanted this mix to be something you could gift to and then bake with your mum. It’s not just a Mother’s Day present; it’s a graceful, intimate way to a shared experience.

You can send one to mum from Karen Walker or The Caker – bonus, they have free nationwide shipping – or go a step further and join her in the kitchen to bake them together!

But Wait, There’s More…

If a cookie mix isn’t enough, and you’d rather spend the whole afternoon one-on-one with Karen and Jordan at The Caker’s beautiful Auckland kitchen baking cookies and drinking tea with your five best friends, plus take home a Runaway girl necklace, then bid for it!!! Karen and Jordan are auctioning that exact experience right here with all proceeds going to their charity of choice, Plunket.
