It’s a well-known fact among foodies like us that June’s jampacked with fun holidays dedicated to sweet eats. Vanilla milkshakes and strawberry shortcakes, cherry tarts and chocolate éclairs, even apple strudel and Rocky Road ice cream—all have official days this month reserved in their honor. But none’s as (rightfully) ballyhooed as National Donut Day, and it’s finally upon us. In honor of the occasion, we’ve rounded up 10 tasty ideas for incorporating the universally tempting treat—whether it be glazed, powdered, sprinkled, or jellied—into your nuptial celebrations.
Looking to cut costs? A tower of doughnuts is an economical alternative to a traditional wedding cake. It’s easy to make yourself, and let’s be real, few fondant-covered confections can rival the humble donut’s deep-fried deliciousness. Spotted on Elizabeth Anne Designs, the creation pictured above was adorned with a scattering of fresh roses for a festive presentation.
You “donut” have to stand for any ol’ display. This personalized one takes the pastry-picking experience to a new level.
Tuck tasty takeaways into these playful wax-lined bags, sealed with sweet stickers.
We’re “donuts” for these cocktail napkins, stamped with calligrapher Laura Hooper’s lovely lettering in gold foil.
Macarons masquerading as donuts make perfect stand-ins for those with gluten woes. Adventures in Fashion has the hack on how to whip up this dessert hybrid in five minutes flat. Eureka!
Need a late-night party snack that’s guaranteed to perk up guests? You won’t go wrong if you opt for mini lattes garnished with bite-sized donuts—a fun take on a quintessential favorite. Martha Stewart Weddings has the scoop.
When in doubt, add glitter, like Sweet Celebrations did for this glamorous brunch fête.
Food truck fans! Seize the (big) day by securing a retro-inspired donut dispensary in the form of Carpe Donut, a converted traveling trailer that serves up hot apple cider donuts made from scratch out of fresh, organic ingredients.
Give guests a little taste of New Orleans’ French Quarter with classic beignets—a chicer, and fluffier, cousin of the donut—in sweet heart shapes. Get the recipe for these sugar-dusted delicacies here.
