A “Bun in the Oven” Baby Shower Favors
I had so much fun making the favors for Erica’s Baby Shower. When I was looking for ideas online, I ran across packages of Muffin Mix for sale, and decided to make something similar…
Instead of muffin mix, and keeping with the theme, I sent each of our guests home with a mix to make Cinnamon Honey Bun Coffee Cake in a Mug
! (I found the recipe here.)
- Yellow Cake Mix (I was able to make 9 favors from each box)
- Brown Sugar
- Clear Baggies and Ties
- Snack Baggies
- Labels for Topping Packets
- Colored Paper Bags
- Coordinating Ribbon
- Colored Paper & Card Stock for printing tags and labels
- Hole Punch and Scissors
Measure the following into a baggie, Seal & Tie off.
1/3 cup yellow cake mix
Add the following into a separate baggie, seal & tie off, label as Topping Mix:
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp finely chopped pecans
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Empty Cake mix into mug.
Add 2 tsp Oil, 1 T. Water, 1 Egg White, whisk well.
Sprinkle topping packet on & cook on high in microwave for 2 minutes.
I also included optional oven directions, which I tested out since I don’t have a microwave and wanted to test the recipe before giving it away! 😉
Next I printed out a poem found online for the cover, along with the image from the invitations, etc, and glued them onto some coordinating paper and then to the bags:
A bun in the oven
Such great joy
Will it be a girl?
Or will it be a boy?
Only time will tell
Whether we’ll need pink or blue
We know we’ll be ready
Thanks to you!
After placing the Mix and Topping in the bag, I punched a couple holes, added the ribbon, and that was it! They were so easy, even I could make them!!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
