Sugar Donuts


Ready for some sugary donuts today? 

It’s almost a month we staying at home during this covid-19 period. Besides doing HBL with Ian at home, I still have some time for baking. Have not been baking for awhile, decided to bake some sugary donuts for the kids. 

That enthusiastic baking feeling has come back. Besides the going to expire flour reason to get me started, I also want to hone back my baking skill. 🙂 


They all said nice. Or maybe they give me face?

Anyway, I am happy with my bakes today.
