Sprinkles & Mocha Mom’s Favorite Things Cake #DunkinKcupLove

By  | Last Updated:  

As part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network I am being compensated by Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee K-Cup® Pods for participating in this campaign. All opinions and enjoyment of K-Cup and cake are mine but I’ll share with you!

Do you remember the wonderful aroma that greets you when you walk into a Dunkin’ Donuts? That melding of coffee and sweet practically sweeps you into bliss. Somehow that blended scent promises delight and contentment: gratification can be yours (As an aside, I also always hear there will be no calories; I usually decide the voice can be trusted.).

That gratification really can be yours at home now. You can find Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee K-Cup Pods in the grocery store coffee section. They come in Original Blend, Dunkin’ Decaf, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series Chocolate Glazed Donut flavors. You don’t have to use filters or measure anything—just pop the pod into your Keurig brewer and you’re in business.
New Dunkin Donuts K-Cups
With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend—and Memorial Day and Father’s Day right on its heels—these enticing aromas and flavors are the perfect way to welcome guests. If you really want to captivate them, offer family and friends a bit of something sweet with their brew. Maybe a platter of donuts…maybe a piece of homemade cake with their coffee? Here’s my suggestion to make Mom swoon this weekend:  Mom’s Favorite Things Cake. It looks pretty and festive and it tastes divine!
