  1. Create an Opening: Use a pastry, small knife or turning sticks to create a hole in the side or bottom of each donut. Insert the tip gently and twist it to create a cavity without tearing the donut apart.
  2. Fill the Piping Bag: Put Bavarian Cream into a piping bag fitted with a filling tip or a small round tip.
  3. Fill the Donuts: Hold the donut in one hand and insert the tip of the piping bag into the cavity you created earlier. Squeeze the piping bag gently to fill the donut with the desired amount of filling, being careful not to overfill it.
  4. Dip filled donuts with Chocolate Donut Icing and pipe a rosette using Sup-R-Fluffy Vanilla Buttercreme. Finish off with a maraschino cherry on top.
