Doughnuts

alright, so i am taking culinary classes and one of which is a 'introduction to baking and pastry production' so its all about making it from scratch..

We have a semester long doughnut competition where each class time a different person makes a doughnut of whatever style, flavors, etc. So far ive seen some cool stuff and some really off the wall doughnuts (loaded baked potato doughnut)

My in-class cooking partner and i are choosing a play on smores, making a dark chocolate dough/pastry and drizzling over it with a marshmallow cream..with possibly a hint of cinn./nutmeg and finally topped off with a graham cracker crumble.

I usually try to take a bunch of pics, so hopefully i can post some pictures up here later this week..my class is early tom. morning so lets hope it turns out well.

Hey, Erik, that's a top of the class idea!
I was right. I knew that we would be on the lopsided receiving end with you joining DC. Welcome. Good luck with the donuts.

Not to change your plan, because the donut sounds great, but had a thought - how about a chocolate donut, filled with marshmallow cream, with dark chocolate ganache drizzled on top and a graham cracker crumble? It has all my favorite things.
