I am thinking of making this cake for a staff meeting Tuesday morning. I thought since the meeting was at 8:30 the donut theme would be good. My question is what can I use for the pink "frosting" other than fondant. I saw a few other photos where they used royal icing. How do you pour that one so it doesnt cover the donut completely.

i think i would use buttercream, microwave it a little bit until it's pourable.

That interesting about microwaving buttercream. I should give that a shot.

you can use anything, royal, glace, chocolate, pouring fondant maybe (not used it)?
you just pour on a little, very carefully. too much icing too fast, and too much donut will get covered.

I've microwaved canned frostings to get that look - so microwaving homemade BC should work as well. Just nuke it in short spurts - I overdid one once and it came out too thin!

Thanks, I think I will try heating the BC.
