Make an amazing Mother's Day Breakfast including daisy-shaped eggs and bacon, a fruit bouquet, pretty flower-stamped biscuits, and more.!
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 on Mother's Day.
This breakfast looked really pretty on the serving tray. I hope you enjoy making it for your mom too.
Flowery Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed
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.
Make flower-shaped scrambled eggs.
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 silicone daisy mold with cooking spray.
Equally divide the eggs in the 6 daisy cavities in the mold.
Bake at 350 degrees until the eggs are cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Remove from molds. Cut an olive in half and set one in the center of each daisy egg.
Make bacon stems and leaves.
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.
foam stamp of a flower - I used a Wilton flower stamp set.
store bought or homemade biscuit dough
food coloring (yellow and green)
paint brushes used only for food
Stamp the biscuits.
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 leaf 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.
You can also make stamped puff pastries filled with chocolate or your favorite filling like jam, lemon curd, or apple pie filling.

Fruit Flower Bouquet
flower cookie cutters
Pineapple, Cantaloupe, green grapes, strawberries
leaves from the pineapple
small vase filled with sugar
Cut out flower-shaped fruit.
Use the flower cutters to cut out shapes from slices of pineapple and cantaloupe. Use the smallest flower cutter 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 the different sizes of 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 flower cupcake wrappers. I went the easy route and used a packaged mix of Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
