Good enough to eat (almost!)
These doughnuts may look good enough to eat - BUT resist the temptation unless you want broken teeth! (they probably wouldn't taste to good either!
These cuties have lots of uses - whether they are for pendants, earrings, hair-accessories, fridge magnets or miniature food for barbie dolls - you'll have lots of fun making them!

    To make the icing- roll a piece of coloured clay into a small ball. Squish the ball between your fingers to flatten it. Gently pull at the sides to make your clay a thin, slightly distorted shape.

    For the drizzle icing and to hold your clay sprinkles on - use white liquid clay. (I've used Sculpey brand, however it is also available in Fimo brand)

    Cure (bake) in the oven at the clay manufacturers recommended instructions. If you find your clay is still to soft - and not baked properly- you can bake longer but not hotter.

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have two questions. I've heard it hard to keep eyelets (not sure if that's the correct term) in the clay, have you tips on that, and what size eyelets did you use?

Hi! The ones I’ve used are quite small- only 8mm long. I don’t have too much trouble with them staying in- I just make sure to twist them in- then press the clay tightly around the top. If I feel the hole is too loose- I’ll bake without them in- and glue them in once baked.
Hope that helps!
