Superhero Dessert: Captain America Donuts

Who’s ready to see Avengers Endgame this weekend?! You know this girl is! Our tickets are ready and waiting….EEEEK! And if you’re as excited as me I bet a super sweet superhero dessert would be right up your alley. Even if you aren’t counting down the minutes until show time, perhaps you are planning a superhero party this year? Either way, our Captain America donuts make the perfect superhero dessert for pre movie festivities, a birthday party or even your Fourth of July celebration. Cap is all about patriotism after all. It doesn’t get much more patriotic than red, white and blue.

If you know me in real life, you know I’m kind of a Marvel nut, so these donuts will be making more than one appearance at my house. Ha. Our whole family is full on Marvel addicted in fact. We LIVE for each and every new movie that the franchise releases. And thanks to the amazingness that was Captain Marvel, Avengers Endgame has a lot to live up to. Although, if the last ensemble movie, Avengers: Infinity War, is any indication, it’s going to be pretty epic! And being that Avengers Endgame opens tonight, I think a Captain America inspired superhero dessert would be just the thing to get my little Marvel fans pumped about our upcoming movie date! Wouldn’t you agree?!
