I was running short of both money and time for a grandson
s girl friend, who had invited us to share afternoon tea with them.,it being her birthday, and we were to meet her. Whilst at the local supermarket I saw packets of donuts., and the brain started to kick in a bit. , some were coloured some plain, so I purchased a box When I arrived home, searched and found a piece of dowel and tied some 12 pieces of xmas curling paper to the top, you know the sort that you can make curl up if required, but I just needed the thin colours . Searched for a round plate , stood the dowel and ties in the middle, and to each one I tied a donut, making a maypole. Covered it all over, using the weight of the donuts to stand it up straight. Would you believe, I struck gold with it. Lass, loved donuts and nobody had ever made this up for her. That lass split from grandson, but we have a baby boy from their time together, so we now well and truly keep in touch with her, and for xmas I bought her a small donut machine to make them now for herself and the little one, when he is big enough….Dont have a photo of it, but thought it may give rise to other mums for ideas for children. You can buy donuts with cinamon, and literally no sugar if you need too..
