Surprise Mom this Mother’s Day with some Flower Donuts! Dad and the kids can make this edible bouquet for mom to enjoy in bed!
Mother’s Day Flower Donuts
Mother’s Day is THIS weekend!
Are your Husband and Kids ready to pamper you with breakfast in bed?? I’ve got this fun, easy, and yummy breakfast treat that Dad can bake and the kids can decorate. This year, you can have you flowers and eat them, too! Dad can totally make these flower donuts (it’s from a box mix) and then let the kids go to town decorating them!
Are you doing anything special for yourself on Mother’s Day? This week I am giving myself the gift of time. I feel like I rush around too much taking care of everyone else, so I’m going to do my best to devote some special time each day to me. An hour a day just for me… ahhh… bliss!
Do you spend much time reading for enjoyment, taking a walk by yourself, or even go to the bathroom alone??
Why must the family pester me for every little thing? Does my husband really not know where the butter is? I didn’t hind it from him. UGH!! But I digress….
I am a mother to a wonderful eight year old little girl. She is the light of my life and the reason for all of my grey hair! Now that she is a little older, I’d really like her, along with help from her Dad, to make me a Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed. That’s not asking too much is it? I know that they can handle it! What kid can’t resist some Signature Brands Sprinkles and Frosting?
This is a great breakfast that she and Dad can make so I can enjoy a day of leisure.
It starts off with a Lemon Poppyseed muffin mix to make some donuts and then the kids get to use some colored sugar crystals and frosting to play with their food and make you some edible flowers!
The kids will enjoy making these Flower Donuts and you will enjoy some breakfast in bed.
- Lemon Poppy Seed quick bread mix (plus ingredients on box)
- Cupcake Icing in White and Green
- Sugar Sprinkles
Make the Lemon Poppy Seed mix according the instructions. Transfer half the batter to a gallon size baggie. Spray the donut pans with some non-stick baking spray. Snip off a small corner of the bag and pipe the batter into the donut pans. Only fill them half way up. The batter will rise while baking.
Bake the mini donuts at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes and the large donuts at 350 for 12 - 15 minutes. Remove from the pans and allow to cool.
While the donuts are baking, prepare all the flower petals. Pour a container of colored sanding sugar into a quart sized bag. Cut the marshmallows into four equal slices with clean scissors into the bag of sugar. Coat the sticky sides and flatten out the petals. You'll need 5 to 6 petals per flower. I used five marshmallows for each color. Set the colored petals aside.
Add a ring of white cupcake icing to the curved side of the mini donuts. Place five marshmallow slices around the donut using the icing as glue and then flip them over so that the petals are on the bottom and the flat side of the donut is facing up. Add the glaze to the donut top.
For the large donut, add the glaze and then place the petals on top of the donut.
If you have a large serving platter, you can make Mom a bouquet of flowers. Pipe on some Green Icing to make a few stems. Add the prepared larger "flowers" to the stems and then fill in with the mini donuts. If a petal falls off, just slide it under the donut once it is placed on the tray. Have the kids sign their names with the icing.
