What a better way to treat the women on your family than a Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed! This amazing breakfast will impress your mom or the special someone you’re making this for!
When I think of my mom, visions of beautiful flowers pop into my head. Last year, I told you about the beautiful floral paintings, pictured below, painted by my mother that inspired me to create a Deviled Egg Daisy and some pretty Pain au Chocolate stamped with colorful flowers.
This year, in keeping with that theme I’ve designed an entire floral themed breakfast to celebrate my mom; even though she wont actually be able to eat it, because we live so far apart now, she will enjoy seeing the pictures and knowing I am thinking of her.
This breakfast was made using several Wilton products and lucky for me and lucky for one of you, they are giving away a customized Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed Kit to one of my readers. I love using Wilton products to make sweets and chocolates, but they are also really wonderful to use to make edible crafts out of savory items as well. This breakfast was created using Wilton Silicone Daisy Mold, Wilton Flower Stamp Set, Wilton Flower Fondant Cutters, Wilton Sunflower Petal Baking Cups and you can enter to win all of these products. See the giveaway details after the recipes.
Flowery Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed
You’ll need:Wilton Silicone Daisy Mold
3 large or 6 small eggs
1 tablespoon heavy cream, half and half or milk
pinch of salt
3 green olives
6 slices of cooked bacon
I used simple scrambled eggs and found that half of a large egg worked perfectly to make each daisy. Small eggs would work instead, just don’t use more than that or the eggs won’t cook through before the edges get rubbery.
Whisk 3 large eggs with a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream, half and half or milk, and a pinch of salt. If you add pepper now you’ll have black flecks in your flowers, so just serve pepper on the side. Spray a Wilton Silicone Daisy Mold with cooking spray. Equally divide the eggs in the 6 daisy cavities in a Wilton silicone Daisy Mold. Bake at 350 degrees until eggs are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from molds. Cut olive in half and set one in the center of each daisy egg.
Cut a long thin strip along one edge of each piece of bacon. Cut a leaf from the remaining bacon. Arrange your scrambled egg flowers on a plate and add a stem with a leaf. Your flowers are ready to serve.
Wilton Flower Stamp Set
store bought or homemade biscuit dough
food coloring (yellow and green)
paint brushes used only for food
Lightly paint food coloring onto the daisy stamp. Press it onto a biscuit dough round. Paint the stem stamp with green food coloring and press it onto the biscuit. The leave stamp is just a bit big for the biscuit, so paint just part of it with green food coloring and stamp it next to the stem.
Bake according to package or recipe instructions. They are ready to serve.
Fruit Flower Bouquet
Wilton Flower Fondant Cutters
Pineapple, Cantaloupe, green grapes, strawberries
leaves from the pineapple
small vase filled with sugar
Use the flower cutters to cut out shapes from slices of pineapple and cantaloupe. Use the smallest flower cuter to cut out the center of the larger fruit flowers. Press a grape into the center of each flower. You may have to cut around the sides of the grapes in order to get them to fit if they are too large. Insert a skewer into the fruit flowers and into some strawberries. Use different size skewers so you have various heights for making your bouquet. I filled a small glass vase with sugar and arranged the fruit flowers by pressing the skewers into the sugar. Add a few leaves from the pineapple to your arrangement.
Finally, bake some muffins in Wilton Sunflower Petal Baking Cups.
Arrange your breakfast on a bed tray and serve in bed. Wouldn’t you love to be served this on Mother’s Day? Share this post with your hubby and kids and you just might get it!
