Vancouver 2010 Mini-donuts with powdered sugar glaze and one with Nutella
Whoo Hoo! The Winter Olympics in Vancouver start today!
Born and raised in Los Angeles with no snow, I'm not a winter athlete (heck, I'm not a summer athlete either!), but I love grabbing a mug of hot chocolate and watching the Winter Olympics. And I think the mascots are cute! Miga the sea bear (part whale and part bear) is adorable!
So, I made some Olympic mini-donuts to celebrate the start of the games! Which can be translated into "the beginning of my sleep deprivation watching the Olympics..."
And I wanted to tell you about my mini-donut maker. I got this months ago and am finally posting about it.
Bundt, the miniature and the Hello Kitty.
Mini = Freakin' Cute.
My friend JustJenn has a mini-donut maker. Williams-Sonoma sold it for only one year. I've tried to distract her and steal it from her. I've checked eBay for one. No dice.
JustJenn's Coffee and Donut Cupcakes. Too cute.
I mentioned this dilemma on the blog and Wendy of Pink Stripes told me that King Arthur sold a donut maker. Holy Smokes. I bought it within HOURS of this comment.
It's very similar to JustJenn's but hers makes 7 donuts while mine makes a half dozen at a time. They are baked so they come out like cake donuts, not like a fried Krispy Kreme donut. And since they are mini, well, you can eat a bunch!!
Mini Donut Maker - $39.95 on the King Arthur website - as of today, it says it isn't available! Bummer!
These are very cute and mini. The V-day candy is for scale.
Happy Olympics! Happy Valentine's Day! Happy Lunar New Year! Whew! Lots going on this weekend! :)
