Ready to hero up? These fun donuts are sure to be a hit with your favorite superhero fans at home!
With the opening of the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride
(among other fun things at the park), Disneyland has deemed this the “Summer of Heroes”. In addition to the fun at Disneyland, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
just recently came out (which I had the pleasure of visiting the set of during filming & interviewing the cast), Wonder Woman
is currently in theaters, Spider-Man
swings into theaters later this summer, and Thor 3: Ragnarok hits theaters in November. Add that to other summer things like ComicCon & D23 and well, there is A LOT of superhero fun to be had! We even did a whole Avengers superhero theme for Halloween this past year!
So, it probably comes as NO surprise that while I was attending the media preview for the Summer of Heroes fun at Disneyland, I knew the boys would love just about everything! And one of the things that stood out was all the fun themed food! There were some super fun options like these epic superhero donuts found at Schmoozies in Disney’s California Adventure Park. Check out the size of the ‘Gamma Sized Doughnut’. WHOA!
Aren’t they fun?! We cannot WAIT to get back to Disneyland to try them! But in the meantime, I thought we could make our own fun versions at home! Now, these certainly aren’t as elaborate with delicious fillings and giant sizes, but I think they’re still pretty fun! We’ve got Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, and Spider-Man represented here!
So fun! To make the the hero donuts, you’ll need plain glazed (or cake) donuts (either your favorite homemade donut recipe or homemade). For frosting, you can also use store bought or a simple butter cream recipe! Once you have those basic ingredients, then you can get started with the decorating!
