If you’re lucky enough to live in a place that has a full time delux donut shop, then maybe this post isn’t for you. If on the other hand, you’re like me where no such shop exists, settle right on in.
We do have some gourmet donuts in my city, but they’re in various coffee shops on certain days of the week. So I thought I’d take matters into my own hands and decorate plain old donuts you can get in any little town and jazz them up! A perfect treat for mother’s day.
Here are some donut combinations I dreamed up:
Jelly Donut
Make it a PB and J donut by making a peanut butter icing and drizzling it on top.
Chocolate Glaze
Add a fruity twist by topping it with glazed orange slices, sliced strawberries, or whole raspberries
You can have fun with this one. Dip half the donut in a chocolate sauce, top with chopped cherries and let it dry. Or dip it in maple icing, top with chopped bacon and let it dry. OPtions are limitless.
A delicate and beautiful touch for mother’s day, add edible flower petals to the top of your donut. Some options are roses, calendulas, tulips, chrysanthemums, yucca, and lavender. Just make sure they aren’t sprayed with anything nasty first.

This is what happens when you teach near full time and are pregnant with 1000 things on the brain – you get the idea for this post ages ago, plan to make each donut with real donuts and real flowers/strawberries/etc, and the night before hits and you realize you never got the chance.
Sorry friends. This post could have been way cooler. But I still wanted to share my ideas!

Fancy or not, what’s your favourite donut?

Pssst like donuts? Then you might like my donut ice cream cake.

Okay, I’ll admit it, I totally dropped the ball this Easter season. Man, if I can’t juggle being pregnant with work and creating DIYs how am I going to do it with a baby around!?
Anyway, Sorry I don’t have anything for you, but I do have the below archives (check out all past Squirrelly Minds Easter fun!) and all the fantastic Easter DIY’s above. Hooray!

I’m away this weekend on an island Easter getaway with some friends so I may not be back around these parts until later next week.
Wishing you all have a lovely long weekend!
