Decorating Tips for Hanukkah Doughnuts
Tips for filling a jelly doughnut:
Use a decorating tool with a fine tip. If you don’t have one, try using a plastic bottle with a fine tip (honey, ketchup, or even a water bottle with a sport top). You can also make a small hole in the doughnut and carefully fill the doughnut with a small spoon.
Fill the tool/bottle with quality jam (or dulce du leche, pudding, chocolate spread…). While the doughnut is still warm, insert the tip into the middle of the doughnut and fill, and then dust with powdered sugar.
For white icing:
Warm fondant or white chocolate in small pot on low flame until it melts. Remove pot from flame and dip half of the donut into the fondant or chocolate and then flip over onto plate. Top with sprinkles immediately.
For chocolate icing:
Heat chocolate in a small pot on low flame until it melts. Remove pot from flame and dip half of the doughnut into the chocolate and then flip over onto plate. Add toppings as desired and let cool.
For cinnamon-sugar topping:
Brush soofganiyot (Hanukkah doughnuts in Hebrew) with melted butter and top with cinnamon-sugar.
More topping ideas:
On top of icing, add chopped nuts, shredded coconut, colored or chocolate sprinkles…whatever you can think of!
