One of my brides this year wanted to do something a little bit different. She wanted donuts for her wedding day. I am always up for a new challenge so I was happy to accept!
Since I don’t normally bake donuts myself I ordered them from a local bakery in bulk and just took on the decorating and display. I was incredibly happy with this choice. The donuts were consistent and took to the icing quite well and due to their stickier nature I was able to transport them right on the stand.
The recipe I used for the glaze was simple- icing sugar and milk. I combined those 2 ingredients together until I got the thickness I needed to dip them. I was hoping for a dark burgundy for some of them, unfortunately the icing didn’t really take to the colouring… But I was still happy with the overall look of the display!
To keep some dessert tradition in place for this event we also did a “donut” cake for cutting. I matched it to the pink/burgundy donuts and garnished it with some silk roses.
I’m hopeful this dessert choice will trend as it was so much fun! I’m personally not a big sweets person (to eat) but if I showed up at a wedding that had donuts I’d be thrilled!
