I’m so glad that Spring has finally arrived! I can’t wait for the bright, beautiful colors of the season to make an appearance. And I’m definitely ready to bake up some springtime treats. Which is why I’m so excited about the bold new Funfetti cake mix and frosting colors from Pillsbury®. Now you can create all kinds of bright and bold baked goods in colors like Aqua Blue, Orange All Star, Neon Yellow and Vibrant Green.
The bright new colors reminded me of beautiful spring blooms, so I decided to create some fun daisy cookies with the neon yellow cake mix and frosting. The great thing about this recipe is that you could use any of Pillsbury’s BOLD Funfetti colors–just choose coordinating colored sugar to match. These cookies make a beautiful presentation, but they’re really quite simple to put together.
This is a great recipe to make with kids. They can help cut the marshmallows and shake them in the colored sugar. Mine even helped arrange the marshmallow petals on the frosted cookies and they came out beautifully. I love cooking and baking with my kids, and this recipe was perfect for including them in the kitchen. We’re already looking forward to making more daisy cookies in different colors to celebrate Easter.
One of the things I love about these cake mixes is that they come in 8.25 ounce pouches. So if you want to create a multi-colored layer cake, you don’t have to use an entire box of cake mix for just one layer. And every tub of frosting comes with candy sprinkles to help you celebrate even more!
