Donuts hold a very special place in the French Toasts’ hearts. Not just any donut. A blueberry donut.
That’s right. I said a “blueberry donut”.
I’ve never heard of a blueberry donut before so I was really excited to try it when Mr. French Toast told me about a bakery in San Francisco that made sinfully delicious blueberry donuts. One day he drove me to try the said donut. To our utter disappointment, the bakery shop was out of business.
From that day forward, I held it against him that I never got to try the elusive blueberry donut. It just wasn’t the same with a blueberry bagel, muffin or pancakes. That period was short lived though, because a few years later on a random afternoon, Mr. French Toast surprised me with a blueberry donut! By sheer coincidence, groomsman Henry’s family owns a donut shop in the bay area…AND…get this…it turns out that the blueberry donut is one of their specialties!
Henry is so sweet and thoughtful to always bring me a blueberry donut every time he sees Mr. French Toast, so there was no question that we were going to have donuts as favors. Because, who can resist a display like this?
For the packaging, I actually attempted to print our names on the wax bag with my inkjet printer. Major fail. The bag crumpled up and jammed my printer. So it’s back to square one to find a cute way for guests to pack the donuts home. I also liked what Ms. Hippo is doing with her donut favors, so we might also take that route.
In the meantime, Henry has been experimenting with different colors and sprinkles to make the donut look prettier. We’ve decided on a blueberry donut with white frosting and sparkly sprinkles, and a regular donut with pink frosting and white toppings. I’m really excited to share our blueberry donut story with our guests and have them try it too!
