You won't be able to resist these doughnuts.
These doughnuts are glazed in black, violet, hot pink, and royal blue icing, before being sprinkled with a lustrous glitter, and it's gorgeous.
These galaxy-glazed doughnuts look deceptively difficult to create but in reality, it's as easy as 1-2-3. This recipe video shows you exactly how simple it can be and how creative you can get because you can use your favorite colors, add shaped sprinkles, or even make each into a glittering black hole in the galaxy of your choice.
Use this technique to glaze homemade doughnuts or ask your favorite doughnut shop for a box of unglazed ones so you can glaze and decorate each to look as out-of-this-world as it can be.
Galaxy Glaze Recipe
- Takes 30 minutes
- Makes 2 cups glaze
- 4 cups icing sugar, sifted
- 8 tablespoons fresh milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Gel food coloring in purple, pink, blue, and black
- Glitter dust in silver and gold
- 24 unglazed doughnuts
1 In a large bowl, mix the icing sugar, milk and vanilla extract with a silicone spatula. Scoop about 1/2 cup glaze into 5 small bowls, leaving the remaining white glaze in the large bowl. Set aside.
2 In the smaller bowls, add then mix enough gel food coloring into each to create 4 vibrant colors.
3 Using a spoon for each color, dollop each color onto the surface of the white glaze. Swirl with a toothpick or bamboo skewer as desired to create a pattern.
4 Prepare a wire rack with parchment paper underneath to catch drips. Dip and drag the top of a doughnut into the surface of the glaze then let any excess drip off. Place on prepared wire rack. Immediately garnish with glitter dust. If desired, run a brush through the dust. Repeat with remaining doughnuts and glaze. Serve.
