Disney’s Moana Inspired Donuts

Follow your desired donut recipe. I don’t fry my donuts. 

Donut Recipe:
2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter

Donut Baking:
Spray the donut pan with cooking spray. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Fill each pan cavity 2/3 full. Bake for 7- minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before taking them out. Makes 12 donuts. 

Decoration Ingredients:

  • Red fondant
  • White fondant
  • White Candy Melts
  • Pink, yellow, and black food coloring

Decorating Instructions:

  1. Melt white chocolate Candy Melts in two microwavable bowls.
  2. Add yellow food coloring to one of the bowls.
  3. Dip half of the donuts in the white chocolate and the other half in the yellow. Shake each donut after dunking to ensure that you get an even coating. 
  4. Cut a portion of the red fondant out of the container and flatten out with a small roller. Using a knife, carefully cut out the shape of the crest. Attach the crest to the top of the yellow-coated donut.
  5. Pull out a portion of the white fondant. Flatten it out and shape it into the ears and snout. The nose looks like an upside down heart. 
  6. Using pink food coloring and a little of the white chocolate paint the inside of the ears and snout.
  7. Cut out two small pieces of the white fondant for Pua’s beauty marks. 
  8. Make grey paint by adding a small drop of black in with a little of the white chocolate. Use it to paint Pua’s beauty marks and to put two drops as the nostrils.
