Valentine's Day Doughnuts

Valentine's Day doughnuts

Turn your kitchen into a romantic bakery when you top up these doughnuts at home with Valentine's Day decorations. 

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 10 people


  • 225g icing sugar
  • Pink food colour
  • 10 ring doughnuts
  • *To decorate*
  • Heart shaped sprinkles
  • Pistachios
  • Edible crystals


Sift the icing into a bowl.

Using a wooden spoon, gradually stir in 3-4 tbsp water, so that the mixture thickens and becomes spreadable. Beat until smooth and thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Transfer half to a separate bowl.

Colour the icing by adding a drop or two of food colour to one bowl to make it pale pink and a few more drops to the other bowl to make it a brighter pink colour.

Put the doughnuts onto a wire rack set over a baking tray. Spread the lighter icing over half of the doughnuts and the brighter icing over the others.

Once the icing begins to set, scatter the doughnuts with the toppings of your choice, working quickly so you finish before the icing sets fully.

Leave the icing to set completely, then serve or put in boxes lined with non-stick baking paper to gift. They will keep for 24 hours.
