I was recently able to celebrate a dear friend’s upcoming wedding by hosting her bridal shower. She is a huge coffee lover, so I instantly thought of the Love You a Latte tags from Valentine’s Day. Why not put a little spin on those tags and host a Love You a Latte Bridal Shower?
Preparing for the Bridal Shower
I knew I wanted to serve her favorites, in addition to the coffee. To make things a little easier for me, I decided to have a coffee bar and an Italian Cream Soda bar on the food table. The food was simple and delicious. I purchased blueberry muffins from the store, lemon cupcakes, and Italian Pizzelle cookies. But, I made heavenly little baked mini donuts as well. I was able to buy a variety of Dunkin’ Donuts® creamer singles and Dunkin’ Donuts® Keurig K-Pods, as well as everything I needed (except the Italian Pizzelle cookies) for the dessert/brunch at my local Walmart store! The creamer singles and K-Pods were on the coffee aisle at Walmart. This party was carefree and simple, like the bride to be!
The mini donuts were a breeze to make, and everyone has asked for the recipe and for me to make more! I was able to make about 60 mini donuts in less than an hour using a donut maker and the simple recipe below.
- 1 Cake Mix
- 1/2 Cup of Water
- 1/2 Cup of Dunkin' Donuts® Creamer Singles (about 10 singles)
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 Oil
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2-3 Dunkin' Donuts® Creamer Singles (your choice of flavor)
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Pour into frosting bag or ziploc bag with tip cut off.
- Pipe into mini donut maker or pan.
- Bake according until fully cooked. (I used a donut maker with a built in timer.)
- Mix together until smooth
- Once the frosting is done, dip the donuts into the frosting and allow to dry.
- We kept ours in an air tight container for several days.
Decorating the Dessert Table
I used my glass apothecary jars to hold the Dunkin’ Donuts® Creamer Singles and Dunkin’ Donuts® Keurig K-Pods. Muffins and mini lemon cupcakes were on my white cake stand From TomKat Studios. The mini donuts and cookies were placed on a simple rectangular white serving dish.
Make Italian Sodas
My galvanized two tier stand was perfect for the Italian Soda Bar. Coffee mugs and clear plastic cups with straws in them were on the bottom of the stand, while seltzer water and flavored syrups were on the top. To make an Italian Cream Soda, add a little of your favorite syrup to a cup of ice, then fill with seltzer water, finally add one to two Dunkin’ Donuts® Creamer Singles and stir with your straw. Everyone was able to personalize their own drinks thanks to the variety of Dunkin’ Donuts® Creamer Singles. It was so much fun! We felt like mixologists with our coffees and Italian Cream Sodas.
I used my Cricut to make the vinyl Love You a Latte lettering on the vintage glass window frame for the backdrop, as well as for the tags on the favor bags. Favors were simple as well, and packaged in a small chevron bag from Pick Your Plum.
