Is it real or felt?

I haven’t bought anything from Etsy since Christmas, until recently. I ordered these felt treats from Sweet Things by lisajhoney a couple weeks ago.

We love donuts around here, so I thought it would be fun to have a glass plate of donuts in the center of our table.

I also love truffles, but they aren’t so good to have around the house after losing 15 pounds. These are the next best thing. Anyone want to join me for a cup of coffee (or tea) and donut or truffle?

Slice of Donut Cake Anyone?

I saw this cake pan at William Sonoma and HAD to have it!

We love cake and we love donuts, so why not make them at the same time?!

First we made a batch of cake batter. Then we divided the batter in half, filling each of these cake pans about 2/3 full, and baked according to the recipe.

We added a little chocolate frosting to the middle to hold the two halves together.

Dave did such a fabulous job frosting the top of the donut cake to make it look like an actual donut. Next up, sprinkles!

This was such a fun baking experiment and delicious snack for a Saturday afternoon.

Anyone care for a slice?
