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?
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. Food was simple and delicious. I purchased blueberry muffins from the store, lemon cupcakes, and Italian Pizzelle cookies. 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.
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.
