Hello friends. I hope you’ve had a great week! This week flew by for me. Did it for you? Speaking of flying by, I feel like this year is also flying by. It’s hard to believe that it’s already June 1st and summer is just around the corner.

98627_SO_MM_JUNE_B This month’s Michaels Makers challenge is all about pool parties.

visittonc-10 And I’m a little obsessed with these little flamingo float donuts…:)  visittonc-13
Michaels has such a great baking section and making these little guys was actually fairly easy.   I bought some plain doughnuts and used this pre-made Wilton icing over them.
I actually mixed some pink and white icing together, because the pink was a little too bright.

I then used some pink fondant to form the head. Here’s a photo of the various pieces I used to form the head of the flamingo.  visittonc-15

I then ‘glued’ them all together using a little water and shaped the beak downwards.

I added a little bit of black for the eye and inserted a toothpick through the neck for more support.

After that, it was just a matter of sticking the toothpick through the doughnut and voila!
Cute right? These didn’t take long to make at all and I think they would be the talk of your party.

    These are too cute! I love the pink flamingos and I’m sure my youngest daughter would love to create some fun doughnut creations for the summer.
