I loved what I made last year, well more the packaging and presentation (I don’t like eating food with my fingers either do my kids , we loved the addition of forks with our cupcakes).

2015

The school doesn’t allow birthday cakes (they messy and time consuming for the poor teachers) so cupcakes are the favourite.

This year I really wanted a change, I’ve done cupcakes, I’ve done jelly jars so what to do, what to do?….,…doughnuts (donuts).

These were so easy to make and quantity wise fantastic.

What you’ll need:

  • flour
  • milk
  • sugar
  • salt
  • eggs
  • butter
  • The best buy however was the Doughnut Maker itself – I bought mine from Clicks and it was on special for R 199.99 and because I’m also a clicks card holder I got a further R 20.00 off #mykindofshopping! Recipe is included

For the decor:

  • white melting chocolate
  • milk melting chocolate
  • powdered food colouring (green,red,yellow,blue)
  • ziplock bags

For the packaging:

  • containers (I used foil pie containers fromĀ  West Pack Lifestyle)
  • clear packaging
  • stickersĀ  ( I designed a quick label to put on the plastic sleeves)

We made a total of 4 batches and 180 odd doughnuts.Each child got 5 doughnuts (symbolic of the 5 Olympic rings).

The kids loved them and the teacher was thrilled that there was no mess or fuss!!!!

Win-Win
