For the love of Doughnuts...and Donuts!

I've blogged about doughnuts before, and I'm gonna blog about doughnuts again! They've been popping up on my pinterest and crowding my peripheral. Are they blipping on your radar too? or is it just me? Well, I'm pretty sure it's not just me, because recently we've received more than a few orders for our print above. It's always such a pleasant surprise when a painting we finished a while back experiences a lil bit of a resurgence.
So in the spirit of this itty bitty doughnut trend I've collected some fave representatives of the form.   

   Anything on a stick does the trick for me! Check out these sweet Donut (cake) pops !

    When we visited Los Angeles last year we all got so ill by the end of the trip. So on the last day which we reserved for driving around and seeing all the sights and sampling the local eats...we were too sick to even get out of the car. But still, I requested that we at least drive by the famous Randy's Donuts so I could see the giant donut sign. In my ideal doughnut inspired vignette I'd be sure to feature this print          

Donut Queen....not a bad gig!

  If I was a kid again I bet I'd take a bite out of this delicious looking Doughnut soap

Donut rings by Petit Plat are adorbs. 

A Giant donut cake! Williams Sonoma cake pan set . If I was a kid again I bet I'd take a bite out of this as well...only with much more satisfactory results.

Mini doughnut maker! I love anything like this. Little self contained factories. Don't know why it reminds me of the Dozers from Fraggle Rock. (that reference dates me a lot!)

"Doughnuts Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home" by Lara Ferroni. This book looks great! so many different recipes! Look over on the right at my Amazon Favorites for the link to this fab book.

The Sunbeam Donut Maker! I have this and love it! It's great for dinner parties. Mixing up different batters and glazes, and gathering different toppings is so much fun! They bake perfectly every all you have to do is figure out what recipe you want to try next. And they're baked instead of fried! You can also find this over on my Amazon Favorites.

ok, see you around like a donut! pssshhh!

  1. I miss donuts, so much, my grandma's donuts.

  2. Ooh I want a doughnut maker! I frigging love doughnuts! Only basic ring ones though. My friends laugh at me because I just get Original Glazed at Krispy Kreme. I just don't like all the fancy stuff as much.


  3. Oooh, love this! Especially the rings, and of course your print. We had doughnut stacks instead of a cake for our wedding.

  4. I always get a chuckle from the images you post, but that mini- donut maker?! YUM!!! I'd have to change my last name to Kardashian, if you get my drift.

  5. Randy's is soooooo yummy. The best donuts ever! I mean it. Next time you are in LA you have to have the coconut donut. Anytime we are in the LAX area we have to stop.

    Thanks a lot this post made me totally hungry.

  6. I have thought about buying a doughnut make so many times but talked myself out of it:( I will one day! Just visiting from the Blog Hop and am now following you. I would so love if you would share any of your awesome posts at Freedom Fridays. Hoping to see you there.

  7. LOve your blog! DONUTS?! We are #soulsistahs!

    Found you thru the Blog Hop! Looking forward to following your adventures!
