Daffodil Donuts for Mom

daffodil with flowers for blog
April showers bring May flowers just in time for Mother's Day. Like real flowers,  
these daffodil donuts won't last forever. But in this case, these daffodils will 
be gone because  they were eaten so quickly!
Daffodils today come in many different shapes and colors. Traditionally the 
daffodil should have six petals and a bell shaped center. 
We chose to make a traditional yellow daffodil but displayed it two ways:
   1. In a basket with fresh-cut flowers.
   2. In a vase as part of a floral arrangement . 

Now it's your turn to get creative !

– Yellow sugar sprinkles
– 18 1-inch licorice string pieces in black, yellow or orange

Preparation
  • Cut the edges off of the donuts to form flower petals as seen below. (The daffodil should really have 6 petals)
Donut Flower Without Icing
  • Put a half a cup of frosting into a microwave safe container
  • Mix in a few drops of food coloring until you get your desired shade of yellow
  • Place in microwave for 20 seconds (or until melted)
  • Individually dip each donut into the melted frosting and let cool on a wire rack
  • Sprinkle sugar sprinkles on petals while frosting is still wet
  • Dip top and sides of each marshmallow into frosting and then cover with yellow sprinkles
  • Once the frosting has dried, use the Writing Icing tube to outline the petals and the top of the marshmallow
  • Insert 3 pieces of licorice string into the center of each marshmallow
  • Place the marshmallow onto the middle of the donut (dip the bottom of the marshmallow into frosting to make sure it adheres to the donut)
  • Optional: insert lollipop sticks into the donuts.

Enjoy!
