Cake love: a tower of doughnut holes for those who want an alternative to wedding cake
I have a thing about doughnuts, the really good ones that is. Near where my parents live there used to be a bakery that reputedly sold the best jam doughnuts in England, and I am pretty sure they were. They were scrumptious and filled with real raspberry jam and covered in sugar.
If you’re not a huge fan of cake, there’s no reason to say that you can’t find another sweet treat that you love – such as doughnuts – and create a wedding cake from them. I’ve seen ring doughnuts with pink icing and sprinkles all stacked up on top of each other, but this idea of using doughnut holes to create a croquembouche style wedding cake I really love. As I understand it, these doughnut holes are stuck onto a cone-shaped mould, but I’d like to think a skilled cake maker or family friend could make you a true tower of nothing but doughnut holes iced together.
Supermarket doughnuts can be all too disappointing once you’ve tried such good versions, but there are bakeries and artisan bakers popping up all over the place making exceedingly good doughnuts.
If you’re searching for excellent quality doughnuts then I can recommend Pippin Doughnuts based in Wiltshire (turns out they do weddings – see image above!). Every time I go to the Stroud Farmers Market when I’m visiting my family I always take away a box of these doughnuts – they are incredibly delicious and come in a fantastic range of flavours and fillings.
