Donuts! A fabulously sweet phenomenon that has swept through like a storm. Constantly changing and giving us new options, Custard filled to covered in cereal. You can even find them as a bun for and ice cream sandwich or burger now!
I have had the pleasure of trying to create a jumbo donut cake recently and it was very interesting. I found myself owning a giant donut mold so why not put it to use? I decided on a chocolate sponge as my cake base, just like some donut shops have. After baking with one of these jumbo molds all I have to say is "don't forget to spray every inch". This particular mold was designed so that it would bake as a donut in one piece, not separate halves that you glue together later. So I guess no jelly filling for this donut. At least not without cutting it in half or puncturing it with a pastry bag. Decorating was simple to give it the classic donut feel I gave it pink icing on the top with some rainbow jimmies. Cute as a jelly filled button.
Next time donut day rolls around I think I'll try frying a giant donut. Let me know what you think I should try next!
