It’s National Donut Day!!!! It’s time to celebrate with some….
You know I wasn’t going to let National Donut Day go by without making something to celebrate right??!!! I mean- every donut should be celebrated. I have so much fun with my little mini-donut maker. I try to make some for a Saturday morning at least once a month to sort of break the cycle of muffins & breakfast cakes & other things. Besides- don’t you just have those days when you just REALLY CRAVE a donut?? I definitely do.
These were SO MUCH FUN!!!!
I was going to do red velvet but as I was adding the food color the pink just grabbed me
& I thought it was better for summer to do something a little lighter.
