Donuts for Dessert, Brilliant!

Today is National Donut Day, and in honor as such a sweet calendar event- I thought I would share some great donut inspiration with you. The next time you are planning a party- consider swapping your traditional cake out and serve donuts instead.

From top- left to right: Tray passed mini donuts, a simple stack of sweet potato donuts, homemade donuts via Bakerella, double chocolate donut, create a donut dipping station, glazed honey donut atop a hot white latte.

I also love the idea of serving guest warm donuts near the end of your party. Or even, sending them home as favors. Check out these donut hole bags, they would be prefect.

You can make these yourself. Check out the DIY template from Hello Lucky. You can download here.

Taste the Rainbow: St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

So I was tweeting away last night about making these rainbow cupcakes ….well I wanted to share the finished pictures with you all. We are going to deliver these to our neighbors today wishing them a luck St. Patrick’s Day. If you are looking for a last minute treat– these are simple. I even had everything to make these rainbow cupcakes right in my pantry!

Rainbow Pancakes make for a Cheerful Breakfast

I got so much interest when I posted these on our Facebook wall, that I decided to share them here as well.

Want to make your family smile on a Sunday morning? Serve them up a cheerful breakfast surprise, rainbow pancakes! They are simple to make. Prepare your favorite pancake batter as usual- then divide it amongst separate bowls and add food coloring to each bowl (I used 5 colors here but you could use 6 colors in the rainbow). Then, cook like normal!

Enjoy!
