Last time I made mini doughnuts was to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The way I decorated them (drippy red glaze) gave me some inspiration for a new creation. I kept that in mind until last week, when I finally decided to give shape to my idea.
They’re baked mini doughnuts coated in colorful and drippy glaze, looking like paint on a wooden palette. But they’re edible, really!
I wanted to make a messy impression, like if a kid had been painting with it.
About the Recipe:
To make the doughnuts, I followed this recipe.
About the Decoration:
To make the colorful glaze, combine some icing sugar with some tbsp of water (one at a time) until getting a thick consistency which has to flow. We don’t want either a very stiff glaze or a runny one. Then, you can split the glaze in different bowls and colour it with some food colouring (blue, orange, pink, green, yellow, purple…). Dip the doughnuts in it and let the glaze to drip. Leave them to dry before handling them again.
Regarding the palette, I drew a real size palette on a cardboard. Then I carefully cut it and covered it with wooden effect sugarpaste, trimming the excess with a sharp cutter.
I handcrafted the brush using sugarpaste. It’s like modelling play-dooh, but using sugarpaste you can eat the whole work!
I hope you like these delicious and colorful mini doughnuts and they paint a smile in your face!
See you soon.
