  • Vegetarian


  • 6 ring doughnuts
  • 200g icing sugar
  • black food colour gel
  • green food colour gel
  • orange food colour gel
  • chocolate & caramel writing icing pens


  1. Lay the doughnuts flat on a clean tray. Sift the icing sugar and divide equally between 3 bowls. Add a little water to each, 1 tsp at a time, to make a thick but spreadable icing. Colour one with orange gel, one with green and the other with black. Spread the icing over the doughnuts so you have 2 of each colour. Leave in a cool place to set.
  2. Pipe spiderwebs on top using the writing icing. Decorate with a strawberry lace spider, if you like.

Tip: Make spiders by tying 4 strawberry laces in a knot and trimming the ‘legs’. Dip in black icing, then leave to set.
