Hi, this is Erin.
And Rich (creator in crime and resident donut connoisseur).
The two of us brought together two things we love (donuts being Rich's love and embroidery/sewing being Erin's newest let's-see-if-I-stick-with-it love) to put a non-traditional spin on a traditional albeit delicious baked good.
Originally inspired by Clockwork Lemon's embroidery cake that uses sprinkles as a cake topper, we painstakingly sat at our kitchen table armed with nothing more than tweezers and patience (Rich had patience, Erin less so).
Erin found the biggest trick was placing the sprinkles before the icing hardened, which was little more than 10 minutes.
Rich found the biggest challenge was not dunking his creation in milk before Erin could photograph it.
