Ingredients
  

MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Fondant
  • Brown and Yellow Food Coloring
  • A wooden skewer or candy thermometer
  • Icing Glaze (1 cup sugar + 1.5 tbs water)
  • Sprinkles

Instructions
 

  • 1. Color fondant desired brown color (we used a combination of yellow and brown). Roll fondant into 3/4" balls.
  • Using a wooden skewer or the end of a candy thermometer make a hole that goes all the way through the center of the ball.
  • With a forefinger and a thumb on each side of the ball (covering the holes), lightly press down to flatten ball. Flatten sides too if necessary. It should look like a naked doughnut at this point.
  • Dip top part of the doughnut into icing glaze.
  • Use skewer or thermometer again to remove icing from hole.
  • Dip doughnut into sprinkles.
  • Use skewer or thermometer to remove sprinkles from the hole. Set aside and let dry over night.
  • Once they are dry, you can add them to the border of your cake. And if you want to make a doughnut topper, repeat the same process using a larger piece of fondant.
