Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts

by Jillian Leslie on

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts | CatchMyParty.com

 

I loved this assignment. We were asked by Bounty to come up with a quick and easy way to surprise Mom on Mother's Day, and to pick something where mess was not an issue, because we had Bounty.

So I tasked my husband and daughter with coming up with a recipe that was delicious, simple, and that a mom would love.

And you know what they chose? Quick and easy Funfetti cake mix donuts with extra sprinkles (the extra sprinkles was my daughter's idea). What mom, or kid, for that matter, wouldn't love more sprinkles in their lives?

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts

Because the goal was to make this super simple so any non baker (or dad or grandfather or aunt or significant other) could pull this off, we chose to use boxed Funfetti cake mix as our base and some buttermilk to make the donuts extra moist and tender.

The recipe was a snap, but definitely a little messy, as you'll see below.

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts | CatchMyParty.com

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts Recipe

Ingredients: for the donuts
  • 1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
for the glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup of rainbow sprinkles
Directions:

Add the eggs, oil, and buttermilk to a large bowl and whisk until completely combined. Whisk in the cake mix.

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts | CatchMyParty.com

Place donut batter into a large Ziploc bag. Cut one end and pipe the donuts in the donut pan.

Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts | CatchMyParty.com

Bake for 8 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

For the glaze, add the powdered sugar to a mixing bowl. Pour in the milk, add the vanilla, then whisk until smooth.

Now here comes the ooey, gooey messy part. Dip the donuts into the glaze. Place on a cooling rack. Let the glaze dry, then double dip. Trust me, it makes the glaze thicker and whiter.

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts

Add sprinkles to the tops of each donut.

(Okay, this was the highlight for me. I watched the glee on my daughter's face as she did htis, and it made me think about how being her mother is one of the best blessings of my life.)

Quick and Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts

Tip: Keep extra sheets of Bounty within arm's reach because there will be sticky fingers.

Bounty is so absorbent, your rolls last longer because you won’t need to use as much to tackle the messiness that come with baking with a kid like mine!

Lainey got to eat the first one and said it was absolutely delicious!

Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts | CatchMyParty.com

I tried one, too, even though it's not yet Mother's Day, but it is my job.

The donuts turned out moist, tender, and had that yummy birthday cake flavor, and the glaze was the perfect delivery vehicle for the sprinkles.

If you'd like to surprise Mom on Mother's Day with these donuts, we offer a variety of free Mother's Day cards and printables to go along with them. Just download the files, print them out, cut them out, and delight Mom!

 

 

Just make sure the kitchen is cleaned up first! :)

Step 1:

In a small saucepan melt wax. Remove from stove and place pan on a hot pad. Add drops of scented oil and food coloring. We made vanilla scented candles and decided to leave the food coloring out.

Step 2:

Place a glue dot on the bottom of the candle wick. Press the wick down into the center of the ramekin. The glue dot helps hold the candle wick in place.

Host A Fifty Shades Darker Girls' Night In Party

by Jillian Leslie on

 

Fifty Shades Darker Girls Night In Party | CatchMyParty.comThe movie Fifty Shades Darker was released on iTunes this week, and will be available on Blu-ray & DVD May 9.

Could there be a better excuse to stay in and slip into something darker this weekend?

The release comes with over 13 minutes of steamy footage not seen in theaters (woot!), plus 30 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content, including cast interviews, behind-the-scenes features, and a sneak peek at the next installment in the series, Fifty Shades Freed.

So in honor of the iTunes and Blu-ray & DVD releases, why not host the ultimate Fifty Shades Darker Girls' Night In Party and watch the Unrated Edition with your besties?

Fifty Shades Darker Girls Night In Party | CatchMyParty.com

Check out how I hosted my Fifty Shades Darker party. Plus, scroll down because we're giving away free printables to help you set up your own party!

Fifty Shades Darker Cocktail Party Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

For my party, Universal sent me a box of goodies!

Fifty Shades Darker Cocktail Party Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

But no worries if you don't have swag. I'm sharing my easy party hacks, a "Black Mask" cocktail recipe, and free printables to help you decorate your own party.

Dessert Ideas

Because I didn't have a lot of time to pull this party together, I headed to my local Safeway to stock up on desserts. To make things easy, I wanted this to be a cocktails and dessert party.

I chose these pink and red cupcakes to add pops of color to my grey table.

Fifty Shades Darker Cocktail Party Ideas

And if there was such a thing as a sexy cake, I'd say this was it!

To set the tone for my party, I bought this silver masquerade mask (affil) and placed it front and center on my table.

Fifty Shades Darker Girls' Night In Party | CatchMyParty.com

I also printed out two photos from the movie and the Fifty Shade Darker logo, put them in three silver frames, and used them to add drama to my table. I've included them here for you to download for your own party.

I always like to add gum balls to my dessert tables. (Note on gum balls: people will actually put them in their mouth and chew them! :))

The grey and black balloons and silver streamers came care of Universal.

I had a helium tank lying around, so I blew up the balloons and displayed them in front of the streamers to create my dessert table backdrop.

In the movie, Anastasia wears a grey ostrich feather jacket over her metallic evening gown, so I thought this grey ostrich feather trim (affil) would be a perfect touch around my table.

I also bought a pack of 4 red tissue paper pom poms, placed them on the floor to lined the bottom of my dessert table.

 

Universal sent me some Fifty Shades of Grey wine.

Big hit!

In addition to wine, I also served a signature cocktail.

I call this cocktail "The Black Mask." It's a vodka tonic with two special ingredients - activated charcoal (to turn the drink black) and white pearl dust (to give it shimmer).

Black Mask Cocktail

Ingredients:
  • 2 parts vodka
  • 4 parts tonic
  • 1 part black cherry juice
  • 1 opened activated charcoal capsule per drink *special ingredient* (affil)
  • 1 sprinkle of pearl dust per drink *special ingredient* (affil)
  • Raspberries for garnish
Directions:

Fill  your glass with ice.

Pour in one opened activated charcoal capsule.

Pour vodka, tonic, and black cherry juice into the glass and mix well.

Sprinkle pearl dust and mix.

Place raspberries on a paper straw and serve.

Can you see it looks like it's shimmering?

Here was one of the highlights of the party. Universal sent me awesome party favors to give to my guests.

Each guest got to go home a copy of the Fifty Shades Darker book, an Anastasia lip balm, a makeup case, a paper masquerade mask, and a tee shirt that says, "Slip into something a shade darker."

What a way to spread some of the sexy love from the movie!

At the end of the night, we even read some of our favorite passages and tried to keep a straight face. :)

So there's my party in a nutshell. We all had a blast! Lots of desserts was eaten, lots of cocktails were imbibed...

And lots of fun girl-time was had by everyone!

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon.

My New Favorite Wine Shop

by Jillian Leslie on

My New Favorite Wine Shop - Total Wine & More! | CatchMyParty.com

I got invited to the opening of Total Wine & More in Mountain View, California.

The only snag was that it for the evening I arrived back from Japan. In fact, the opening was going to start only two hours after I landed. But even though I knew I'd be exhausted after a twelve hour flight, I said yes to the invite.

I wanted to see what this was all about.

I'd heard good things about Total Wine -- people had described it as the Disneyland of wine stores. Plus, on the invite, they promised good food and... good wine.

So first thing I did when I entered the store, was head to the Moët & Chandon champagne bar.

My new favorite wine shop - Total Wine & More! | CatchMyParty.com

Glass in hand and feeling a little less tired, I started exploring the store and tasting the wines.

My first impression was that the store felt nicely laid out. It didn't feel warehouse-y, like you were there to get a good deal and get the heck out.

Even though the prices at Total Wine are in line with the warehouse stores, it felt like you wanted to take your time strolling through the aisles, discovering new things.

My new favorite wine shop - Total Wine & More! | CatchMyParty.com

When I interacted with the staff, I found them knowledgeable and helpful. You could tell they love what they do.

Next I made a pitstop at the desserts.

I washed the desserts down with a few helpings of poke, the Hawaiian raw fish dish that is becoming a big thing here in the Bay Area. These were really yummy and went well with the wine.

And then it was time for cheese. Who knew the Bay Area could look so good in cheese?

My new favorite wine shop - Total Wine & More! | CatchMyParty.com

Overall, I was impressed with the huge selection of wines. There was seriously anything you could image from any locale.

Total Wine & More | CatchMyParty.com

There was also a large area for spirits and beer. I heard there was even a humidor.

Beer area at Total Wine | CatchMyParty.com

And the store was also filled with all the wine accoutrements you could ever need. As someone who loves throwing parties, I was in heaven.

Total Wine & More | CatchMyParty.com

Finally, for some final wine-themed entertainment, they had a representative from Moët & Chandon open a bottle of champagne using an actual saber. He just kind of sliced the top off. And yes, it was impressive.

For many of you, you're probably familiar with Total Wine & More. I just read they have over 150 stores across the US. But they've just come to the Bay Area, so this was all new for me.

And I will say, Total Wines is now my new favorite wine shop.

The store was warm and welcoming, and yes, it did feel a little like "Disney for adults." And I have to say, that was a very nice way to ease my jetlag.

Cheers!

Also, if you live in the Bay Area, you can place your Total Wine order through Instacart, and they'll deliver it right to your door.
