I was on my way home via EDSA that day when I saw Krispy Kreme's bilboard for this:
Bearing that in mind, I started designing the layout of the message doughnuts for the Court of Honor Ceremony and ended up with this:
Since Krispy Kreme can do the lettering, shapes (but not the logo), and the red portions of the design, I just have to worry about the blue portions and the logo. Going through my kitchen stuff, I found edible colors.
A day before the event I got an email from Krispy Kreme sending me a photo of what they can deliver. I was happily surprised that they did the blue portions as well. It means less task for me to work on the following day.
They made a fresh, new batch for us on the day of the event which I picked up first thing in the morning. I brought it home with me so that I could paint on the logo using a stencil, and lipstick brush. Yes, you read it right, I used a lipstick brush because I couldn't find a small enough brush at almost 9PM day before the event. My fault since I kept putting the task off until the last minute.
Final output looked like this:
I got a text later that afternoon from another colleague who was there at the Court of Honors saying that the beignets were a hit. It was actually his initially stupid idea to serve doughnuts to the event. I wouldn't have even thought of serving that to an event at the US Embassy. I just went along with it because he knows his scouts much more than I do. Good thing I eventually agreed to the idea.
