Glazed & Confused (Part 1)

*Disclaimer: With the permission from Voodoo Doughnut, these works are purely replica fan art with no intentions to sell.  It is not intended to infringe on any rights by and of the company involved in the production of the miniatures made here. *

 After my last doughnut catastrophe a couple of days ago, and my vow to take a long hiatus from these delicious fried eats, it's only appropriate that I tell my delusional self to make more.  So in honor of one of my favorite cities, I am recreating some doughnuts from the infamous Voodoo Doughnuts.  Right now I'm making all the different components so be sure to tune in  next time with more updates of this work in progress.

I prepared the doughnut "dough" by stacking three layers of polymer clay together with a lighter middle layer between two darker layers.  Since doughnut bars were being made, I simply cut rectangles and then rounded the edges with my finger.  Then I textured the bar with a toothbrush and shaded it to create a "baked" effect.

It was so tough deciding which doughnuts to recreate! Originally I picked only five, but somehow ended up choosing to make 15 different kinds.  If you're familiar with Voodoo Doughnuts, then I'm sure you'll recognize some of the famously shaped ones.

Here are cereal toppings for two of the doughnuts.  I still need to make some of the other toppings; you'll see that in my second series post.  I will also be making another post for a Fruit Loop tutorial which should be up within the next day or two.

Lastly I created some miniature pink pastry box templates in Photoshop to store the finished doughnuts.  I still need to cut, fold, and glue the boxes together.  The base of the box is 1in.x1in.

There is still a bunch of work left to do, but this project is really fun so stay tuned for part 2!
