Notes:

 

  • You may need to adjust the amount of water you use to create this icing, so start with 2 tbsp of water and then add as needed.
  • These doughnuts were created using Queen brand food colouring. You can buy four of these colours in a small convenient pack called Rainbow colours and just buy an individual bottle of black food colouring.
  • If your children are sensitive to food colouring, you can buy Natural food colouring which is also made by Queen.
