🌌 May the force be with you!
Celebrate May the 4th, aka Stars Wars Day by making these galactic donuts! Even though I am providing a donut recipe, you can use whatever cupcakes you like and simply decorate them following my instructions. Whether you buy them ready-made, use a box mix, or bake them from scratch, the choice is yours. In my opinion, they are the perfect addition to a Star Wars themed candy bar!
🤔 How to
💭 Step by step
With a toothpick, or a chopstick gently form holes into the sides of the donut. Dip round side of a raw almond into icing, then press into the donut hole. Repeat on other side. Continue for all your donuts. Dip donut into glaze and let off a little bit. By rotating it around the drips should stop. Wiggle gently around to even out icing. Put onto a cooling rack and let drip off and dry. Done!
Store wrapped in paper in an air-tight container at room temperature for 3 days. If you plan to store them for even longer, place them in the fridge or freeze them.
❄️ How to freeze
Store donuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for around 4 hours until solid. Then transfer the frozen donuts to a freezer bag, label with the date of freezing, and return them to the freezer. They keep fresh for around 3 months when frozen properly. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or on the counter.
