Galaxy Donuts with Bon Vivant Cakes


Are donuts your love language? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or anytime you want to show yourself some love, this new demo workshop with Emily Nejad of Bon Vivant Cakes is all about creating her gorgeous, signature Galaxy Glazed Donuts.  

Emily will be joined by World of Whirlpool’s Chef Alia Dalal, who will demonstrate how to make homemade classic cake donuts, from making the dough, cutting it and frying. You’ll learn how surprisingly quick and easy donut dough is to make and Chef Alia will bust a lot of myths on frying to make you comfortable with this process (her favorite misconception: You need a full pot of oil to fry. Nope! Under 2 inches will do just fine). 

Once our donuts are ready, Emily will demonstrate how to make a donut glaze and how to use gel coloring to create the “galaxy” finish. In the prep packet, you will also gain access to Emily’s recommended styles and brands of donut decor like food coloring sprinkles, and even the unexpected ingredient she adds to her glaze.  

This workshop is a demo only and does not include a kit for pick-up, so you can join us from anywhere! After registration, you’ll receive a digital packet – shopping list, equipment list, recipe and any prep ahead steps.

Note: This workshop involves frying donuts. Our chef has included a baked donut recipe in the prep packet as an alternative. If you want to bake donuts, that demo will NOT be shown in the workshop, so you should have the baked donuts made ahead of time and then you can join in for the glazing.
