A recent food trend is turning a classic baked good into a spacey work of art.
One of Instagram’s latest obsessions is galaxy donuts. Much like glossy cakes and other decorating innovations, the design is mesmerizing to behold.
Galaxy donuts are made by putting drops of food dye in the white icing, swirling it with a spoon, and then dipping the donuts halfway into the icing and letting the colors slide off them until the galaxy effect is achieved. 
The technique was popularized after a confectioner from Iran named Hedi Gh showed off her design on Instagram. Later on, a blogger named Sam from the blog ‘so beautifully raw’ shared a recipe on Instagram and trend took off.
