Learn how-to make 35 cake and yeast doughnuts by scratch!

You will learn about traditional doughnuts, specialty doughnuts, unique doughnuts, fillings, toppings & decorating lost over time! Learn how to make authentic doughnuts by scratch, provided to you by the most experienced independent consultant in the industry. 

My name is Ed Chastain and my brother and I (Lester) have a combined 35 years of experience making and creating handmade doughnuts by scratch in our doughnut shop and a variety of bakeries, constantly testing and perfecting the doughnut making art. I started making doughnuts at age 15 in my uncle’s bakery.
Our objective: to provide quality information and valuable training about the doughnut business so your only option isn’t just to open a doughnut franchise and use the company's baking methods. Instead, we demonstrate expert doughnut making techniques for both yeast and cake doughnuts.

The advanced doughnut training course represents doughnut making at its best! It’s a trade you can easily learn and apply at fairs, carnivals, special events, or at your own highly profitable doughnut shop or wholesale business.

   Look at these donuts   A Professional doughnut Line, Taught By An Expert! Lokk at these donuts you can make!


In the DVD instructional I demonstrate my most guarded doughnut making methods, providing instruction on how to make traditional, unique, and even lost-to-history doughnuts, fillings, and toppings (like my special chocolate and white raised cinnamon twist, which, in my shop, outsells every other doughnut I have.).
