I started doing this donut wanting to put on the sprinkles based on Andrew Price intro cycle tutorial. Anyway I finally was able to do the sprinkles using the particle system. That did work and once I put them into a group and onto the donut I wanted to delete those individual pieces but when I went to delete one of them it disappeared from the donut which I don’t want to happen.
I also tried to hide them or put them onto another layer but it all went including the donut.
Also when I did a test render the donut had a bright green light to it.
