1 / 6

½ cup butter, unsalted, softened
5ml bubble gum essence
3ml blue food colouring
Multi-coloured sprinkles

Method

  1. Cream the butter until it is soft and smooth.
  2. Add the icing sugar little by little while constantly mixing.
  3. When all the icing sugar is in, add the essence and colouring.
  4. When the doughnuts are cooled, spread the buttercream over the top of the doughnuts.
  5. Decorate with sprinkles.

Marshmallow Madness (8 doughnuts)

Ingredients

1 cup of marshmallows
Water

Method

*For this recipe, the doughnuts can still be slightly hot.

  1. Cut each marshmallow in half.
  2. Wet the end of a marshmallow slightly – this makes it sticky and allows you to stick it on the doughnut.
  3. Cover the entire top of the doughnut with marshmallows. Heat the grill in the oven to high.
  4. Put the marshmallow covered doughnut in the over and grill for 3- 5 minutes; the marshmallow will puff up and brown.
  5. Remove and allow to cool down.
3 / 6

PB and J (8 doughnuts)

Ingredients

½ cup of peanut butter, smooth
¼ cup of raspberry jam

Method

  1. Microwave the peanut butter for 20-30 seconds to soften it up.
  2. Cover the top of each cooled-down doughnut with peanut butter.
  3. Drizzle some jam over the top, or opt to leave it ‘hole-less’ and put the jam in the centre.
4 / 6

Lemon Love (8 doughnuts)

Ingredients

½ cup icing sugar
100 ml cold water
½ lemon (use 10 ml lemon zest and 30 ml juice)

Method

  1. Mix the icing sugar and the water together until the mixture is smooth and runny.
  2. Once you have a fluid consistency, stir in the lemon juice and lemon zest.
  3. Pour over cooled doughnuts.
  4. Sprinkle over a little more lemon zest.
5 / 6

Mint Choco-crush (8 doughnuts)

Ingredients

5 tbsp. dark cocoa powder
2 tsp. water, cold
3 tbsp. icing sugar
¼ cup mint chocolate, crushed

Method

  1. Mix the cocoa powder and icing sugar together.
  2. Add the water, and mix until it makes a smooth glaze (the mixture should be smooth, but not runny, so you can add water accordingly).
  3. After the doughnuts have cooled, put the donuts on a cooling rack and pour the glaze over, allowing it to drip off.
4. Sprinkle with the crushed mint chocolate pieces.
6 / 6

Choco-nut (8 doughnuts)

Ingredients

½ cup chocolate spread (or Nutella!)
¼ cup crushed almonds or hazelnuts

Method (the easiest one, yet)

  1. Spread a liberal amount of chocolate spread over the top of each doughnut .
  2. Sprinkle nuts over the top.

*It’s especially important that the doughnuts have cooled for this one
