Things You'll Need
- Four 2 3/8" round wooden discs (you can find these at craft stores)
- 3/4" spade drill bit
- 6" tulle or chiffon
- Acrylic paint
- 1" Wood disc
- Mini wooden candle cup (craft stores)
- Pearl beads
- Popsicle stick
- Hot glue
- Glue gun
Glue two wooden discs together for each donut. Avoid putting glue in the center where you will be drilling your holes.
Using proper safety gear, drill a 3/4" hole in the center of each donut.
Paint two layers of "frosting" onto each donut with acrylic paint.
After the frosting is dry, use a small paintbrush to add sprinkles in white, gold, or other festive wedding colors.
Create the hat pieces for the groom's donut by completely cover the candle cup and 1" disc in black paint.
Glue the cup upside down onto the disc to make a hat. When the pieces are secure, glue the hat to the top of the groom donut.
To make the veil, cut a 6" x 3" piece of tulle or chiffon and gather one 6" side with a sewing machine or just your fingers. Glue to the top of the bride donut. Decorate with a row of pearl beads where the fabric meets the wood.
Cut a popsicle stick in half and trim the ends to a point. Glue to the back of the donuts below the center circle so the stick is not visible through the hole.
Gently press into the top of the cake and enjoy!
