It’s the final post of Donut Week before the big giveaway tomorrow, and I figured I should probably show some real donuts some love, too! I decided to forgo sprinkles for this one (the HORROR!) and break out another favorite of mine… stripes! Voila! Striped donuts. Really fun for summer, or just for any day you feel like pattern-i-fying your donuts.
Donuts (I purchased plain cake donuts, but you could make your own too!)
Extract (Vanilla, Almond or Lemon, perhaps!)
Food Coloring (I have this set and love it!)
Piping Bag (Or a plastic sandwich bag + scissors… my piping bag of choice!
Make your glaze. I typically work with a ratio of one cup powdered to 1-2 tbsp milk + 1/2 tsp extract. Divide and color accordingly for your glaze. Then dip each donut in said glaze and let it set up a bit. Spoon your remaining glaze in your desired stripe color into a piping (read: sandwich) bag. Snip off the end and carefully pipe stripes on the donuts! I recommend starting in the middle and working your way out. If you were feeling really fancy you could go both ways and make plaid or gingham! You could also do multiple colors on one donut for rainbow stripes!
