Who can resist these colorful donuts?  Although you could make your own, we purchased fresh donuts from the donut shop.  Then we made them sparkle with tinted icing and various toppings.  They’re just so beautifully irresistible, you might find them disappearing before your eyes.  So you might want to make a few extras.



Sparkling Jeweled Donuts



Donuts (plain raised and cake donuts)

Powdered sugar


Colored sugars

Colored sugar crystals



We purchased plain raised and cake donuts from the local donut shop, then decorated them. For icing; we added a little water to powdered sugar, mixing until we had a slightly thick but smooth consistency. We dipped the donuts into the icing and turned upside down into separate bowls of colored sugars and sugar crystals.
