These Max Rebo Donuts are the Biggest Hit Since “Lapti Nek”

His excellency, Jabba the Hutt, demands this delicious treat for National Donut Day.

National Donut Day happens every June 1 and it is truly the greatest holiday in all the galaxies. To celebrate this sugary sweet day, rousing celebratory music should be played and no one but the Max Rebo Band could capture the heart and soul of such a momentous event.

His High Exaltedness, the great Jabba the Hutt knows a good thing when he sees it, and these donuts are a tribute to the leader of his in-house band. The perfect Ortolan blue, these little creatures sit atop red ball organ donuts and are ready to entertain you all day long. Happy National Donut Day!

Max Rebo Donuts

You’ll need:

  • Dark chocolate mini donuts
  • Brown icing
  • Edible gold luster dust
  • Black icing
  • Lollipop sticks

Icing Ingredients:

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk
  • Light blue food gel dye

Brown icing is piped onto dark chocolate mini donuts.

Step 1: With a #5 tip, use the brown icing to pipe stripes from the center out on top of each donut. Then go around the edge and add small ovals. Let set.

Step 2: Once the icing has set, use a clean kitchen paintbrush and brush the piped icing with gold luster dust. Set aside.

Blue frosting is made in an electric mixer.

Step 3: In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and blue food gel dye, until you get an even color and smooth piping consistency.

Blue frosting is piped onto the top center of the donut.

Step 4: Spoon the frosting into a piping bag and use a #12 tip to pipe the body onto the center of the donut.

Step 5: Use a #7 tip to pipe the arms on both sides of the body, then use a toothpick to create the hands.

Step 6: Create the head with a #10 tip, pulling down the snout in the front of the face. Then pipe sideways teardrop shapes on both sides of the head for the ears.

Step 7: With the black icing and a #2 tip, pipe very small eyes on the front of the face.

Donuts decorated to look like Max Rebo and his organ.

Step 8: When the frosting has set, carefully place onto the lollipop sticks to serve.

Now you can celebrate this special day and the galaxy’s coolest band leader. Enjoy!
