If you have been to a wedding or shower in the past year, I’m sure you have seen a doughnut wall. No, it is not a party game; it is your dessert.
Gone are the days of the classic dessert buffet, featuring home-baked desserts made with love from the guest of honours’ grandmother and aunts. Cookies, squares, Bundt cakes, or even the recent candy table and cupcake tower are yesterday’s trends. We now have the doughnut wall.
Think pegboard dressed up with donuts: glazed, chocolate and even sprinkles. A classic DIY project for the guest-of-honour’s girlfriends to create over wine one evening; you can theme and decorate to coordinate with any event. The perfect backdrop for your dessert table and doughnuts are typically pretty easy to find and come in many fun flavours.
Tips from the Pro …
Start with peg board as your backdrop; dowels will fit directly in the holes without the use of a drill.
Spray paint paper doilies to hang behind the donuts so they aren’t touching the wood.
A fun title makes the board: Donut Mind If I Do; Donut Leave Without A Treat; Thanks A Hole Bunch.
DID you know ..
Proper spelling is Doughnuts, but you will find Donuts now in the dictionary.
The first Friday in June is National Donut Day.
Have you made a donut wall? Post your photos, we would love to see them.
