Doughnut Pop

2-1

These little bread like doughnut pops are very addictive, especially coated with sugar. Once you pop, you can’t stop. So far, I have eaten 3. Need to control myself. I know Zann and Hub can finish them for me.  I can’t decide if I should add watermarks to all my bake photos. Does it make a difference?

Baked matcha mini donuts

My mini donut tray has been with me for almost 5 years and today I used it for the 3rd time.

I chose white chocolate for my frosting, because nobody likes chocolate except me. Well, I have a big bar of white chocolate compound sitting inside my fridge for a long time and so it’s time to use it. Pink and white, goes with well with green right?  Zann helped me to prepare the glaze with her leftover rainbow chips. These mini donuts tasted just like muffins.
