Wedding Trend: Wedding Donuts

The Next Big Thing: Wedding Donuts

First it was cupcakes. Then macarons. We are still loving naked cakes but there is a new ‘feature food’ coming to a wedding near you – the humble donut.

I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t like this doughy ringed treat; people just tend to have preferences. Warm with cinnamon sugar, plain vanilla glazed, with or without sprinkles, decadent sweet filling. Whatever your poison, there is so much you can do with these delights and they look a site displayed at your reception – maybe in your wedding colours even!

So what creative ways can you use donuts at your wedding?


Instead of a traditional cake.

We love cake, but nothing says fun like a donut. Similar to the cupcake and macaron towers, donuts can be stacked on cake tiers to create a ‘donut cake’!
