Cute Cat-Themed Do-It-Yourself Doughnut Kit!

Food & Drink Sweets Stay Home

There aren’t a whole lot of universal truths in this world, but one we can all agree on is that doughnuts make any situation better. That includes sheltering in place and waiting out the coronavirus pandemic, because if you already have a box of doughnuts at home, what possible reason could you have for leaving the house?

And if you want to indulge both your creative side and your sweet tooth, Ikumi Mama, Japan’s adorable animal donut brand, now has a way to do that at home too.

The Kawasaki-based bakery is now offering a Draw Your Own Donuts set, which includes eight donuts. One is a fully finished cat-shaped donut, and the other seven are waiting for you to apply the artistic touches using the chocolate pens and press-on chocolate facial features that are part of the bundle.

In addition to the completed kitty donut, you get one more blank kitty base of a ring donut with white chocolate glaze, plus two pink ring donuts coated with strawberry chocolate, to make a pair of piggies with.
