Turn plain white ice cream cups into gumball machine donut party favors with these fun printables! Fun for birthday parties, candy shop themed events, or straight-up donut fiestas!
Move over gumball machines, we’ve got another big shot in town! If you’ve ever wished you could dispense donuts right out of a machine for a quarter, your wish has finally come true. Well sorta. Not really. But as close as we’re going to get without a patent. Turn plain white ice cream cups into donut party favors with these fun printables!
After printing and cutting out the designs, wrap the pink wrapper around a 9oz. paper ice cream cup and adhere down. Next, apply strong adhesive or hot glue to the bottom edge of the “donut globe” and attach to the inside lip of the paper cup (on the bottom of the cup). Use pop dots to place on the remaining donuts for dimension, add on the metallic accents, and embellish with a strip of paper fringe!
I intended to fill these with homemade donut sugar cookies but after realizing that was a tad too much work for the time I had, I decided to fake it and frost Oreo thins to look like mini donuts! I simply popped canned frosting in the microwave for 8-10 seconds, added food coloring, and then piped on the icing with a piping bag. I finished them off with some cute sprinkles and wah-lah! My new favorite do-nutty treat was born.
To seal closed, use a hot glue gun to first line the rim of the cup and then press against a piece of cardstock or small paper plate. Trim around the edges for a seamless look and you’ve got yourself a donut dispenser!
