This year show your appreciation for Mom by serving these youth-friendly doughnut flavored mini-cakes filled with fresh strawberry cream and topped with white chocolate ganache.

And Dad *hint-hint* the kids will love making this fast and easy Mini-Cakes Topper as a creative gift for Mom.

After all, it is her day…

And for a stress-free gift for Mom, it’s simple to make these Doughnut Flavored Mini-Cakes over a two-day time period.

…’cause busy bees need a break.

The intricate silicone mold used for this Doughnut Flavored Mini-Cakes tutorial was purchased at my local H-E-B (grocery store.) The baking molds can be found in most craft stores via Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Wal-Mart or Amazon. (Here’s an example.)

Just remember to choose one that you love, ’cause it’s addicting to bake in silicone baking molds.

The youngins will love assembling these Doughnut Flavored Mini-Cakes, to present a creative love inspiration to Mom.

The day before Mom’s special day: (1) bake the mini-cakes, allow to cool then wrap securely in plastic wrap; refrigerate. (2) Prepare the fresh strawberry filling; cover and refrigerate (remember to put a ‘no touch’ sign on the bowl ’cause it’ll disappear fast.)

Her special day: (1) Make the white chocolate ganache; allow to cool. (2) Assemble the mini- cakes. (3) Drizzle the ganache onto the mini-cakes; refrigerate.

*hint-hint* There is a YouTube video down below on how to make the Mini-Cakes topper. The topper can be made days in advance.

Right before serving Mom, add the Mini-Cakes topper and a flower from the garden.

And celebrate the blessings of having Mom in your life.

You’ve got this…Dad!
