Sweet and colorful “sushi” donut
This bright and kid-friendly edible craft is perfect for entertaining the little ones. Whether it’s for breakfast or dessert, donuts, cinnamon rolls and cereal serve as the perfect base for this sweet “sushi” treat. And while it looks super fun and creative, it’s also really easy to make! This would be a memorable activity if you’re hosting a slumber party for the kiddos, too. With just a few simple ingredients, you could probably even make these without a trip to the store. And who doesn’t love that?
1. Choose four of your favorite cake donuts and a cinnamon roll.
2. Cut three donuts in thirds horizontally, and the last donut + cinnamon roll into chunks or strips.
3. Overlap donut pieces on sushi mat, alternating with three layers of donuts and topping with the strips to make the “filling.”
4. Using a traditional sushi rolling method, be firm when rolling “sushi” log.
5. Frost “sushi” log with homemade powdered sugar icing.
6. Sprinkle on your favorite cereal so it sticks to icing.
7. Slice into sushi-roll sized chunks and enjoy!
- 4 Cake donuts, your favorite variety of flavors
- 1 Cinnamon roll
- 1 Cup cereal of choice
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 Tablespoon water
- Cut 3 of the cake donuts into thirds horizontally.
- Cut cinnamon roll and fourth cake donut into short chunks or strips (this will act as the sushi "filling.")
- Place donut pieces on sushi mat alternating with 3 layers of the 3 donuts. Slightly overlap the donuts.
- Using sushi mat, roll the donuts with traditional sushi rolling method. Be firm when rolling, squeezing with each roll. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, mix 2 cups of powdered sugar with a tablespoon of water to desired consistency. For a lighter icing add more water, but be careful—a little water goes a long way.
- Once the icing is made, place your donut log on a cooling rack with wax paper underneath. Coat the roll completely with icing and immediately stick cereal on top of the icing.
- Let sit until icing has dried, about 20-30 min.
- Once dry, place onto cutting board and slice into small bites, just like sushi.
