1 batch of The Original dough, centres left in
200g caster sugar
175g Mini Smarties®, or M&M Minis®
60g rainbow sprinkles
175g unsalted butter
125g good-quality white chocolate, broken into pieces
175g icing sugar
2 tbsp double cream
When you bite into these guys you’ll get an explosion of hidden Smarties! My fave kind of piñata.


1. Using a sharp knife, carefully remove the centre of each donut, making sure you leave a little dough at the bottom to hold in the filling. Place the donuts in a bowl with the sugar and toss to coat. You might need to do this one by one.
2.Fill the centre of each donut with Mini Smarties®, all the way to the top.
3. For the buttercream, whisk the butter until pale and fluffy (around 2 minutes). Add the icing sugar, one spoonful at time, mixing again in between each addition.
4.Melt the white chocolate in the microwave for around 1 minute. Slowly pour the melted chocolate into the buttercream mixture, beating all the while.
5.Fold in the cream to soften it a little and transfer to a piping bag, cutting an opening measuring around 2.5 cm in the tip of the bag.
6.Pipe a dollop of the buttercream to each of the donuts and top with sprinkles.
