Then we decided that we should make tiny little donuts to go with them.
Mister Kitsch made these wee boxes by hand.
Hey, wait a minute!
Who's that guy stealing our donuts?!
Aww! It's okay. He's just spreading the holiday love!
Everybody Gets a Sugar High for Christmas.
- If you want to make your own tiny donuts, simply drop some Cheerios into a bag or container with powdered sugar (for the powdered donuts) OR cinnamon (for the cake donuts) and shake, shake, shake. A tiny bit of any kind of melted chocolate works great for dipping and sprinkles add an extra flair. You're only limited by your imagination!
- We used a tiny pair of sterile kitchen tweezers for the dipping -and toothpicks to get the chocolate ones off of the tweezers. These are completely edible and stay in the box great. If you want them not to shift around, you can take a tiny bit of white frosting and stick them to the bottom of the box - but try it the easy way first with no frosting. That's what we did. Because we like things crazy easy. We put waxed paper on the bottom of the boxes to make them more realistic. And just like in that old game Operation: "It takes a very steady hand!" to put them in the box. So have a swig of something if you're a Shakey McShakester.
- You can also cut out a square on the lid of the box and glue the plastic transparent window from an envelope on so that you can peek through and see the donuts. We were way too lazy to do this part too.
Credit to this idea goes to the interwebs in general. I've seen several tiny donut tutorials here and there and they seeped into my subconscious. I think that these would be fun to gift to someone with a little knee-hugger elf and a tiny jug of moonshine (patent pending). We got our donut box template from here at the awesome "What Will We Do Today?" website.
Until next time,
x's and o's,
