HOW TO MAKE THE GLAZE:
- In a small bowl add the icing sugar and milk and whisk well until you have a very smooth icing. Depending on humidity in house you may need to add more liquid to thin or more icing sugar to thicken.
HOW TO ICING THE DONUTS:
- Place parchment paper onto counter and place a baking rack over top for donuts to sit once glazed.
- Pour glaze into a ceramic mini pie dish.
- Lightly squeeze a few drops of food colouring over icing. Do not use more than 2-3 different colors.
- Use a toothpick to lightly swirl the colors into icing.
- Dip a donut into the glaze and gently give it a swirl.
- Remove and place on baking rack.
- Repeat with remaining donuts.
- Usually after 6-8 donuts I need to make a fresh batch of the icing. The colours get too blended after awhile.
- Let donuts sit for about 30 minutes to set.
Sprinkle gold sparkles on the newly glazed donut. The donut will sparkle like the galaxy! I have used this recipe for years and it works each and every time. Depending on humidity in your house you may have to add more liquid or more icing sugar to glaze to thicken or thin.
