Tonight, in celebration of Manda’s bday, we made mini donuts! We used a mini-donut maker, kinda like a waffle iron, so our donuts were baked not fried. They were pretty cakey, but very small and super delicious! I had prepped a bunch of different toppings, but since there were basically only us 3 girls decorating the donuts, we only made pink vanilla frosting (hence the lack of different colors). My favorite concoction to eat was peanut butter with chocolate chips and chopped Snickers. My favorite concoction to look at was pink frosting with pastel mini marshmallows. We had so much fun making and decorating mini donuts, that we want to make and sell them at the next art show opening at Hairy’s gallery. I doubt that it’ll happen, but it would be funny! We’d decorate a bunch randomly, and people could just have at it and be surprised. This would also be a super fun activity for small kids. The grown-ups could pre-make all the mini donuts and then let the kids slather and sprinkle all over the place!
