Tutorial : Minnie Mouse cruller donut

Hello my dumplings !

Today is going to be a tutorial on the “Minnie mouse cruller donut”

This is following on with that strapya series that I was making.  It was inspired by the following image… except, it’s the blurry one in the background TT

Strapya Cruller donut

Now, the one I’m going to be making is a bit uglier, it’s got texture, it’s less shiny, and the icing part isn’t exactly the same…

But here we go anyway !

Materials:

Materials

  • Translucent sculpey or Fimo deco gel
  • Light yellow clay (or whatever you want your donut to be)
  • Pink pastel ( or whatever you want your icing colour to be)
  • Needle tool
  • I didnt actually end up using the white…. (also, my camera decided to focus on the bottle of TLS…)

Basic shape

  • First, divide your clay into thirds. 1/3 will be for the ears, and the other 2/3 will be the main body.
  • Roll out the 2/3 into a log and make it into a circle shape.
  • Take the 1/3 of clay and divide it into two. Roll them out into logs, and make mini circles.
  • Attach to the main body.
  • Make sure you blend the edges !

Adding the details

  • Here are the two types of needle tools I have. One is thicker. For this creation, I will be using the thicker needle tool
  • Start making the pattern into the clay. Don’t sketch it out like I did ( I ended up not following it..)
  • Make light indents into the clay, and when you’re happy with it, make them deeper and more defined.
  • Do the same the ears.

Making the icing

  • Here is the completed donut. (If you want to, use a tooth brush to add some texture)
  • Now we ice it ! Add some TLS with pink pastel. I actually ended up putting deco gel into it… do not do that. (Unless you want it to be runny)
  • Mix mix mix ,

Putting on the icing

  • As you can see, the ‘icing’ looks like it’s really thick…. well since I added deco, it ended up running down all the sides while it was baking.
  • This resulted into the second image, you can see that there is a pool of icing haha,,
  • Bake
  • Glaze

And there we go ! ;D
As you can see, my version of the Minnie mouse cruller donut is definitely different than the strapya one. I wanted the icing to have a really nice shiny effect, so I added deco gel….ah

It still looks okay right ?

I hope you enjoyed this ! Thanks so much for reading !

    it look awesome!

    even if yours doesn’t look the same as the pictured one, i’m sure if people wanted to make one similar to the strapaya they could figure it out pretty easily

    thanks again for a wonderful tutorial :)
