Mini Waffle Donuts

 Give a donut a pretty little facelift! 
Donuts are our favorite go to party treat. Partly because they are so easy and fun to customize, but mostly because they're delicious! 
 For our Easter table we bought some fresh plain donuts and added a simple glaze. Once it dried we piped them with pastel colored frosting using a decorators bag and a closed star tip. The waffles are toasted mini Eggo's dipped in blue candy melts and topped with a few sprinkles. We added some Cadbury mini eggs and bunny's/chicks from the dollar store to Easter a few of them up! Get creative, you can top these babies with anything.

Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 small pinch salt
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp milk
  • Food coloring and sprinkles (optional
Directions
  • For the glaze:
  • In a flat bottomed bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and salt then stir in 2 Tbsp of milk, adding additional milk 1 tsp at a time to reach desired consistency and whisk until smooth. Tint with food coloring if desired. Warm in microwave in 6 – 10 second intervals on HIGH power to warm as it begins to set while dipping doughnuts, as needed, whisking after heating. 
Simple Icing
  • 5 sticks unsalted butter, softened  
  • 3 tablespoons of high ratio shortening
  •  9 cups icing sugar
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (or almond extract if preferred)
Directions
  • Beat butter, shortening and 3 cups sugar with a mixer on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to medium-low, and continue to beat, gradually adding remaining 6 cups sugar, 1 cup at a time. Raise speed to medium-high; add vanilla. Beat until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes more.

Chocolate Waffle Cake - Easter Style!


Nat and I did a bit of Easter crafting we would like to share with you!
Let's starts with the worlds easiest cake. What makes it so easy you ask? Well, we baked it in a waffle iron. No leveling required, and the waffle grooves fill with icing to make if extra sweet and delish!

WAFFLE CAKE 
What you need:
Waffle iron 
Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix 
Mini eggs (1-2 943g bags)
Fresh flowers 
Chocolate eggs 

1. Make cake batter as directed. 
2. Pour cake batter into waffle iron. Follow the directions of your waffle iron and use it the same way you would make waffles.
3. Stack the waffles with a thin layer of buttercream between each. We use a piping bag to keep the icing layer even.
4. In every second layer we added a bunch mini eggs in the waffle grooves and around the outside. 
5. To create the flower topper we used a 2"x 2" piece of oasis with cling wrap on the bottom to keep it from touching the cake. Run the oasis under water until it's fully absorbed but not sopping wet. 
6. Stick some fresh flowers in the oasis. We also mixed in some silk flowers because they are much easier to use and last longer. Michaels has the nicest silk flowers, but don't forget to bring a coupon and check for flower sales because they're pricey!
7. Once the cake is in place you can add few large chocolate eggs by simply resting them in the flowers.
Simple Icing
5 sticks unsalted butter, softened  
3 tablespoons of high ratio shortening
 9 cups icing sugar
 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (or almond extract if preferred)


Directions
  • Beat butter, shortening and 3 cups sugar with a mixer on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to medium-low, and continue to beat, gradually adding remaining 6 cups sugar, 1 cup at a time. Raise speed to medium-high; add vanilla. Beat until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes more.
  • We will be sharing our Easter Egg Terrarium, and Egg Hanger DIY's, and waffle donut recipe over the next  few days:)

PSST! These uncredible mini egg cookies are from Desmond and Beatrice. They are basically the greatest thing I have ever tasted. If you live in Toronto, order them for Easter weekend and thank me later.
