Unwrapping the Party

HOW-TO EASTER BRUNCH

Alright, Party Girls! Easter is around the corner so don’t even act like you don’t carrot all (see what we did there?)! A few of us in our office were tasked with hosting this year and it seemed a little, well, stressful if we’re being honest. From hams to deviled eggs, hunts, and everything in between where does a Party Girl start in planning only the most epic Easter ever? We say epic of course using our own definition of color, confetti, disco balls, donuts, you know...the things we really love the most in this world.

It seemed only fitting after whining talking through what we were all going to do in our own homes to game plan together what a Party Girl Easter brunch might look like. Although we didn’t make the whole menu for you all here (that’s for next Sunday) we did make the donuts a few of us are serving up as little grab-and-go apps while the egg hunt is on and got a plan together of what our table setting would be that we wanted to share. Yes, hello, those are Disco Drinks and they were made for drinking mimosas with your family! The perfect place setting or little gift inside your sombunnies basket this year.

Check out the recipe below to make these super easy bird’s nest donuts and get to hosting your very own Easter brunch for friends or family this year, beb.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Baking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray donut pan with non-stick spray
Mix together oil, buttermilk, eggs, sugar, salt, baking power and vanilla until they’re all combined
Stir in flower and continue until it’s smooth
Fill the donut pan up about 3/4 of the way (try not to go over so they’re not messy!)
Bake for 15 minutes
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes then remove from pan
While donuts cool make the icing
Mix all the listed above icing ingredients together in your mixing bowl on low/medium speed adding more milk as needed until fluffy!

Once donuts have cooled fill the icing in a pipping bag and start icing your donuts
For the finishing touch add cotton candy and Whoppers Robin Eggs candy for the birds nest look!
