BOSTON CREME DONUTS

August 14, 2014

One of David’s all time favorites are the donuts I made when we first got married. His favorite donuts in general are the custard-filled kind, so I wanted to adapt the old one into something that would really be his favorite.

Meanwhile, I also purchased a real icing and piping set which has been fun to experiment with and learn. It really takes a lot of work and practice to get good at those things, even for the most basic techniques. The easiest thing I’ve done with it so far, however, was using it to fill up these donuts. It was like 0.0 seconds and prior to this I would have thought of something being custard filled as so mysterious and fancy!

  • Honestly, I don’t even like donuts all that much, and I really don’t prefer the creme-filled variety! But this look AMAZING! I’m not just saying that. I want one!
