Fruit Gift Baskets and Delicious Donut Gifts
Is it donut or doughnut?
Both "donut" and "doughnut" are correct spellings of the same word. "Donut" is a simplified version of the original spelling, "doughnut," which refers to a deep-fried pastry made from dough. The term "donut" gained popularity in the United States due to the influence of Dunkin' Donuts, a major donut chain, which began using the shortened spelling in the 20th century. While "donut" is more commonly used in American English, "doughnut" is still widely recognised and used in both American and British English. Ultimately, both spellings refer to the same delicious pastry.
What is in a donut or doughnut?
A typical donut, also known as a doughnut, is made from a mixture of flour, sugar, yeast, eggs, milk or water, and a fat such as butter or oil. The dough is typically kneaded and then shaped into a ring or round shape before being fried in hot oil until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside.
The flavor and texture of the donut can vary depending on the type of dough used and any additional ingredients or toppings that are added. Some common variations include:
- Glazed: A simple donut that is coated in a sweet glaze made from powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
- Chocolate: A chocolate-flavored doughnut that may also be coated in chocolate icing or sprinkled with chocolate chips.
- Jelly: A donut that has been filled with fruit jelly or jam.
- Cream-filled: A donut that has been injected with a sweet cream filling.
- Frosted: A donut that has been coated in a sweet icing or frosting, often with additional toppings such as sprinkles or chopped nuts.
Overall, donuts are a sweet and delicious treat that can be enjoyed on their own or paired with a cup of coffee or tea.

Chocolate Coated Strawberries
Chocolate-coated strawberries are a sweet and indulgent dessert or snack that combines the juicy, sweet taste of fresh strawberries with the rich, creamy flavor of chocolate.
How to make chocolate-coated strawberries
Edible Blooms chocolate-coated strawberries are hand-dipped. Our fresh strawberries are first washed and dried thoroughly. Then, high-quality chocolate is melted over the strawberries with the final step being contrasting milk or dark chocolate drizzled over the existing chocolate coating. The strawberries are then placed onto a sheet of parchment paper or a wire rack to cool and harden.
We have variations of chocolate-coated strawberries, including dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate coatings, and vegan. Themed chocolate strawberries like our 'spooky' Halloween strawberries and chocolate-dipped strawberry bouquets.
Gifting chocolate-coated strawberries
Chocolate-coated strawberries are often served as a romantic dessert or given as a gift on special occasions such as Valentine's Day, anniversaries, or birthdays. They are also a popular dessert option at weddings, parties, and other special events.
Will chocolate melt if shipped?
Not if handled correctly and in a timely manner. When you order chocolate through Edible Blooms, whether that be our chocolate-coated strawberries and choc donuts they all come with an ice pack. They are packed straight from the fridge, with the icepack, sealed in their own gift box with a delivery box sealed to ensure your gift is delivered as fresh as when it left our doors.
Can you deliver chocolate hampers in the heat?
Edible Blooms specialise in delivering chocolate hampers and chocolate-coated strawberries in the scorching Australian heat. Check that the service you are booking provides refrigerated delivery and also packs their products with ice.
It is also a good idea to check with the recipient to ensure that someone will be available to receive the delivery and bring it indoors as soon as possible to prevent prolonged exposure to the heat. If possible, choose a time that tends to be cooler, such as in the morning to minimize product melting due to hot weather, so get your order in early.
