Breakfast in bed is the be-all-end-all of Mother’s Day Gifts. It’s simple and sweet. But if your mum isn’t so much a fan of the sweet and simple, don’t worry! Here are our tips for adding a touch of spookiness for mum’s who like it a little darker. Yes, we’re talking breakfast in bed gone goth!
By opting for black. Black everything that is! Turn your pancakes black by starting with a pale batter and adding in a few drops of black and blue food colouring. If you’re feeling courageous try turning your signature scrambled eggs black next! They may turn slate grey but that’s just as hardcore, right?
This method works with most foods and doesn’t change the taste at all. If slate grey isn’t your mother’s thing experiment with colours! Food colouring is great for mixing into cool colours.
For the Health Mum
Don’t worry! There’s a spooky option for the mum who would rather a green smoothie. Just find out her favourite green smoothie recipe. Then add in a few eyeball shaped blocks of ice and a Tim Burton style striped straw and you’re Pinterest perfect and ready to rock.
Pancakes in the Shape of her Favourite Monsters!
Put your favourite Halloween cookie cutters to use by shaping a pile of pancakes with them. Bonus points if you decorate each shape with strategically placed bloody jam.
Don’t Forget the Eggs!
While you’re at it don’t let any metal cookie cutters go to waste. You can use them to cook perfectly shaped eggs. Who wouldn’t be shocked and awed at the sight of spider web shaped eggs, sunny side up of course!
Count on the Count
Count Chocula that is! If cooking isn’t quite your forte, you can always opt for a pristinely displayed bowl of Count Chocula or Boo Berry. Mother’s Day is all about the effort after all.
