Design Your Dream Doughnut

Design Your Dream Doughnut
Published: 21 July 2023

School’s out for the summer and kids across the Midlands and Cheshire are in for a (w)hole lot of fun with a tasty competition to design the doughnut of their dreams.

Not only that, but the winner of Planet Doughnut’s ‘Design your Dream Doughnut’ competition will also see their doughnut brought to life, with the winning design hitting stores as a limited edition flavour.  All profits from the sale of each doughnut in each local store will go to the Little Rascals Foundation

And, as the Midlands own Willy Wonka of doughnuts and the man behind such creations as the Ferrero Rocher-topped King Rocher and the fan favourite hot pink sprinkle covered Homer doughnut, we are looking to the next generation of doughnut designers for inspiration.

“We’re always looking to create something that's just a little bit out of the ordinary at Planet Doughnut and there really is no limit to a kid's imagination. So that’s exactly why we want young people to help us come up with our next designs.

And, when it comes to toppings, fillings and flavours, the sky really is the limit, explains Duncan: “We’ve all thought about what our ultimate sweet treat would be, whether that’s something that’s stuffed with our favourite fillings, or topped with our favourite sweets, chocolate bars, or even other desserts, there really is no limit to the possibilities.

“No idea is a bad idea and it really is a case of the quirkier the better!”

Entry couldn’t be easier. Simply pick up an entry form in store or download here, and let your child's imagination run wild. Then, just take a photo of the design and email it to ROUS+ PR or drop it into your local store.  Remember to put your name, local store and a parents/guardians contact details

Entrants must be aged between 5 and 16 years of age. The closing date for entries is Thursday 31st August 2023. The shortlisted designs will be put to the public in a social media poll on Planet Doughnut’s social media channels to determine the winner before the winning design is created by the firm's team of expert doughnut makers. The winner will also get the chance to visit their nearest store to taste test their doughnut before it goes on sale as well as bagging a Planet Doughnut merch haul.
