Do you know what’s better than donuts? Donuts that look like cats, that’s what.
Yep, cat donuts are a real thing, and we’re about to tell you how to make them. If you’re thinking that this is going to be really difficult right now, we don’t blame you (because we are NO Mary Berry). But trust us when we say this – they’re actually REALLY easy to make.
This is what we were trying to recreate:
Pretty cute, right? So, here’s how we did it…
To start, we took a plain ring donut.
We then made two piercings at the top, and stuck an almond in each. And there you have it – a pair of ears.
Next it was time to give our cats some fur. To do this, we put our donut face down in a bowl of grey icing, ensuring it was fully covered. We used cocktail sticks to scrape any excess icing off the sides.
While the grey was still wet, we put some white icing onto the bottom of the donut to create a furry stomach patch, and blended it in with the bottom of a spoon.
After allowing the icing to dry, we used piping bags to add eyes, whiskers, ear whites and a little blue tie (because cats look awesome in ties).
We even made our own MP! donut…
And that’s it! We told you it was simple, didn’t we? Make these for your friends, and they’ll think you’re an artistic genius (nobody needs to know quite how easy they really are).
If you give these a go, tweet us your pictures @maximumpop – we’re dying to see your attempts!
