I love donuts. I love sugar. I love you. I also love to decorate desserts and make ’em prettier than when I found them. And then I devour them. I decorate and then devour. In that order. Am I rambling? It’s only because I love sugar. I get this way when I start talking about
One of my most favorite treats would be old fashioned donuts. There’s just something about the way the dough crumbles. And then there’s the glaze. ommmmmmnommmmm. So let’s just cut the crap and get to how we make some color-blocked old fashioned donuts, mmmkay?
You’re gonna need some donuts. You can make them – (delish recipe here!) or you can buy them. Target has the most delicious version in their bakery. There are 8 in a box. How do I know that? Because I’ve eaten about 32 of them. You’ll also need some food coloring, milk, and powdered sugar.
Mix up the milk and powdered sugar until you get a nice glaze-y consistency.
Separate the glaze into two bowls and color each a different color. I chose yellow and coral because I’m just really into sunsets these days.
And then dip. Whatever color you dip first, allow it time to set before dipping again into the second color.
Let ’em dry. And then swallow ’em whole. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
I must confess that I’ve been wanting to share this project for weeks now, but every time I made or bought the donuts, I ended up eating them before photographing them. what the what?!?!
