I may not be the first one to ever tie a bow around a doughnut, but I can promise you, I won't be the last.This is literally the easiest way to dress up a doughnut EVER! If you can tie your shoes, you can pull off this look! The hardest part is deciding which ribbon to use. I chose a 3/8" black satin ribbon for a few reason... 1. I LOVE black...I love all neutrals actually, but black is so classy; 2. I love the contrast of a shiny, fancy bow with the rough and rustic look of Dunkin Donuts' toasted coconut doughnuts; 3. Satin ribbon is perfect for bow-tying. Once pulled taught, the bow will stay put and won't work it's way loose. Some ribbons (like grosgrain for example) are just too bulky to make a nice knot. Organza is another nice ribbon that makes pretty bows.
Once you've decided on your ribbon, it's simply a matter of tying your bows around each doughnut, placing the doughnuts on the stacker plates, and finally sliding the stacker plates on the stainless steal post.
I chose to line the bows up, but you could certainly create a random look or a swirvy look, by adjusting the stacker plates.
And, that's it...all done! Set your Haute Stacker on a pedestal of your choice, or leave it flat on a table...soooo many options! I set mine on this pretty, chrome candle holder I picked up at Hobby Lobby for $5 I think.
So, the next time you're in charge of breakfast for the office consider bringing doughnuts with bows...you could probably even attach bells and whistles to be cliche ;).
As I'm writing this...I just thought of a fun idea! You could include a little message tags on each doughnut tied with the ribbon. The message could be a scripture or proverb or encouraging word...even bride and groom's names...the ideas are endless! I love this idea...I'm definitely going to create another Haute Stacker with messages to show you!
