Winter Donut Decorating Party

Did you decorate Christmas cookies last month? My family decorated ninja gingerbread men cookies. We all had so much fun decorating that I wanted to decorate again, but not cookies. Why no decorating donuts? I knew the frosting would be simple for me, typically buttercream and royal icing. But let’s talk sprinkles for a moment. I wanted these donuts to truly reflect the winter season. I was on the search for snowflake sprinkles. I lucked out and found some in the Christmas section at one of my favorite party stores here in Utah, Zurchers. I snatched the snowflakes up and two other sprinkle jars.

When the day of our winter donut decorating party came, I sprinkled five different blue and silver sprinkles into a bowl. I made three colors of blue buttercream frosting and one small batch of white royal icing. We’re having a winter donut decorating party and below is a list of what you need.

What you need to get the party started

Donuts (of course)
White royal icing
Variation of blue buttercream frosting
Piping bags

I first, dipped the donut in the royal icing and then dipped it into the sprinkle bowl. I then placed it on a plate and did the dipped the remaining donuts. This time allowed for the icing to dry a bit. Then I took the three blue buttercream frosting bags and piled on the frosting.

A couple of helpful hints, cover your kitchen table with a plastic tablecloth, prepare your icing and frosting ahead of time, sit back and watch the decorating happiness.
You can also put together a little hot chocolate station. In my opinion, donuts and hot chocolate are a winning combination. Grab enough mugs for all your guests, whip up some hot chocolate in a pot on the stove and add containers of marshmallows, whipped cream, maybe some candy canes leftover from Christmas.
