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..

  • I love cinnamon donuts and not to keen on the iced ones as I find them too sweet . I think the sweetness sometimes ruins the taste of the actual donut. My favoutes is the cinnamon ones from Wendy when they make it hot on the spot through a donut machine. Hot and delicious !

  • What a clever idea, and good on you for thinking of it. I’d rather have a gift or cake that someone has made for me, rather than a bought one, as it shows the person thinks enough to spend time and thought on making something special just for me.

  • what a really good idea and it is always great when you get one of those light bulb moments. Just show it does not always needs to be a cake
