- 2 cups (300g) pure icing sugar, sifted
- 1/4 cup (60ml) milk, warmed
- Wilton black gel food colouring
- 12 cinnamon donuts
- 24 Wilton candy eyeballs
- 2 strawberry sour straps
- 300g packet liquorice straps
- 24 toothpicks
It's that time of year again when the ghosts come out to play and the dead corpses rise up from the ground. Yep, it's Halloween, and that means scary treats that your kids are bound to have fun eating!
Whether or not you participate in trick or treating, or have a bowl of lollies and chocolate by the door anticipating princesses or superheroes to come knocking, this is the perfect chance to let your creative juices flow and have some fun with your kids in the kitchen.
Besides, if your kids are too scared to eat what you make it means there is more for you. That's what we call a win/win situation.
1. Combine the icing sugar and milk into a mixing bowl. Tint it with the Wilton Gel Icing Colour in Black to give it a creepy colour. Dip one-half of each donut into the icing, spreading the donut around to coat it evenly. Place them on a wire rack to dry.
2. Decorate the donuts with the Wilton Candy Eyeballs. Cut 24 small triangles out of the strawberry sour strap and arrange them on the donuts to look fangs.
3. Cut 24 small triangles from 1 liquorice strap and arrange on the donuts to make ears.
4. Cut 24 wing shapes out of the remaing liquorice straps. Use a small knife to make a slit on either side of each donut. Insert a toothpick in each cut.
5. Arrange the wings over the toothpicks, pressing into the donuts to secure. Arrange the donuts on a serving plate but make sure to remove the toothpicks before eating.
6. Enjoy your spooky sweet treats!
