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.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
