Card Class and Homemade Donuts

There are two things I love, creating cards, and baking for other people!

Tonight, my ladies got both. They made 10 cards that I designed, and they were treated to donuts! Homemade, baked donuts, so no guilt was involved!

Take a look at the cards I made for them to duplicate....


I love when these ladies come over because we always laugh and have a good time. Over the years, I have gotten to know them, and I am thankful for their friendship!

Now lets talk about the donuts shall we? I don't normally make donuts, well because donuts are just evil, greasy goodness bad for you little things. Well we know all baking is, but really now, donuts just have that yummy factor, where you can't really have just one! Enter the invention of the baked donut! Wow.

I grew up on donuts. My mom always made donuts, I think every week or two! So when I bought my Baby Cakes donut maker, I thought I would venture a bit and test a few recipes. I haven't gotten very far. This summer, my girl and I made pumpkin donuts for the farmers market and then I let the donut maker sit in the cupboard. Until today when I dusted it off and made two batches. One chocolate, one vanilla.

Lets just say, we enjoyed them and they were gobbled up in no time! While they may not be as great as the deep fried donuts you can buy, these babies here, well you can have 3 or 4 and I'm sure it equals the fat and caloric content of one of those deep fried ones! Don't hold me to it, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Thanks for stopping by!
