Instructions

Donut Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a donut pan with nonstick baking spray.

Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl and whisk together.

Place the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla extract into a small bowl and whisk together.

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Spoon the batter into the donut pan and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove the donut pan from the oven and allow to cool for 6 minutes before removing and placing the donuts onto the wire rack.

Repeat the steps above until all of the batter has been used.

Now it’s time to make the ears.

Using the grey fondant, pinch off about 2 – 1/2 tsp of fondant and roll into a ball

Roll the ball between your hands to form a long log.

Use your fingers to lightly flatten the fondant log into a long flat piece of fondant.

Set aside.

Pinch off about 2 – 1/8 tsp of pink fondant.

Roll the pink fondant into balls and then roll them into logs.

Flatten the logs into long flat pieces.

Using your fingers, lightly get them wet under water.

Brush your finger along the middle of your grey disks to leave a trail of water. Water acts as a glue when working with fondant.

Carefully lay the pink flat piece onto the grey flat piece of fondant.

Repeat steps for 29 more ears. You will need a total of 30 ears.

Allow the ears to sit while you make the glaze so they can harden.

Vanilla Glaze Instructions

Place the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and milk into a large bowl and mix until combined.

If the glaze still has powdered sugar clumps, mix in another tbsp of milk.

Mix in 1-2 drops of black coloring and mix until combined. You want the color to be a light grey shade.

Decorating Instructions

Make sure that the wire rack is on top of a larger cookie sheet so that the glaze won’t drip onto the workspace when you pour the grey glaze onto the donuts.

Once 10 minutes have passed, carefully lift one of the ears up.

Lightly get your finger wet and brush it on the edge of the top of the ear.

Carefully place the top of the ear on the side of the doughnut.

Repeat steps with the other ear.

Set aside while you mold the fondant bows.

Using a small pointy paint brush, dip it into the powdered sugar.

Brush the powdered sugar into the fondant mold.

Pinch off a piece of red fondant and push it into the mold.

Allow the fondant to sit there for a few minutes before pushing the bow out of the mold.

Repeat steps for 14 more bows.

Lightly brush water onto the back of the bow and place the bow onto the bottom middle of the donut.

Using the ivory colored fondant and repeat the steps that you did for the ears.

Carefully shape the ivory into a bean shape for the base of the mouth.

Lightly wet the back of the ivory fondant piece and place onto the top middle of the donut.

Using the black icing, pipe a line down the center of the of the donut.

Pipe hair onto the top part of the donut.

Pipe stitches down the center of the donut.
