Donut Wall!

 By Jenn Zeeland from Goodbye Cruller World by Ginger Bolton

I'm so excited! I'm getting married. I'm wearing the most gorgeous gown, I've rented the banquet room at Little Lake Lodge, a charming hotel nestled beside a lake in the woods of northern Wisconsin, and I've planned a fabulous reception!

Gauzy draperies will disguise the log walls. They'll hang from the ceiling to the floor all around the room. We'll have delicious food, a live band, and one of the most fun features will be the donut wall.

I'm a sweater designer, and I'm living a dream. I sell my sweaters along with other beautiful clothes in my own boutique, Dressed to Kill.

A couple of really nice people, Emily Westhill and her father-in-law, Tom Westhill, own Deputy Donut, a donut and coffee shop across the alley from Dressed to Kill. While reading wedding magazines, I saw this wonderful idea of having a wall of donuts at your wedding reception. Emily and Tom were very enthusiastic, and they're making one for my reception! Our reception, I should say. Did I mention that I'm marrying Roger Banchen?

The donut wall will be the late night dessert station. Emily and Tom will set it up before the reception, and Emily will come back at ten at night to keep it stocked.

Crullers are my favorite donut, so we're having lots of those. Roger likes raised donuts dusted with powdered sugar. We're also letting Emily and Tom decorate donuts with our theme colors--periwinkle, white, and gold.

It will be beautiful and delicious, and I think it's a fun touch that will make the occasion even more special.

What flavors of donuts are your favorites?


Goodbye Cruller World, the second book in the Deputy Donut Mystery series, will be on store shelves on August 28.

Enter today's segment of The Killer Characters Cozy up to Summer Giveaway!

  16. Years ago I found a farm stand kind of place in Armonk, NY that made fresh donuts. You saw them floating along in the hot fat.
    They were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Simple perfection.
    I haven't found any that good since.
