Sassys Sugar Doughnuts specialises in doughnut towers
Sassys Sugar Doughnuts provides doughnut towers and walls for weddings and events and has a vintage trailer, which couples can hire, providing hot sugar and cinnamon doughnuts, sauces and sprinkles.
"I used to be a beauty therapist until lockdown hit, and I saw a vintage doughnut trailer for sale," says owner Sarah Johnson. "In January 2021, I bought it home, turned it on and started cooking hot fresh doughnuts. Within a week, we were delivering 500 of these a day through the lockdown. As lockdown came to an end we were moving to a project house, and my husband asked if I wanted a beauty treatment room again or a doughnut kitchen. I choose the doughnut kitchen, and my artisan doughnuts were created. My daughter was about to get married, and she asked me to make her wedding cake.
