The last time I sported this much American pride I was decked out in red, white, and blue for the 4th of July when I was middle school. I would like to point out that I wore 3 pairs of socks to achieve the red, white, and blue pattern. It was hot, but cool at the time, ha.
Making American Flag Donuts seems like a much better way to celebrate our country than dressing up like Uncle Sam.
You’ll be the talk of the neighborhood if you bring these babies to your 4th of July cookout. Can you even get american flag donuts from your local bakery? Uhh, I don’t think so and that’s exactly why you should make them!
The whole time I was making these donuts I wanted to share a sneak peek on Instagram because they are so darn cute. But I didn’t think a sneak peek would do these donuts justice.
I mean they were a labor of love. Very similar to those delicious Lemon Pull Apart Sweet Rolls I shared a few weeks ago, somewhat of a process, but SOOO worth it!
The creation of these american flag donuts was a 2 day project, and the whole time I was up to my elbows in Candiquik. After every star and stripe were in the right place, the kitchen towels were full of red, white, and blue smears.
Oh you know, I thought I’d just do a little bit of 4th of July tie dying while I was at it. Kidding.
To re-create our American Flag Donuts you will need a standard size donut pan, lots of Vanilla Candiquik (okay, 1 package will do), red and blue oil based food coloring, piping bags or 3 squeeze bottles to drizzle the Candiquik, Crisco, patience, and hungry Americans waiting to devour them!
Next year I am going to put Uncle Sam’s face on a donut. I better start practicing now.
