I have been watching Cupcake Wars on Hulu. In my opinion the only reason to get cable would be to have the Food Network, and now Cooking TV. But my days as a crook are over.
Anyway, back to Cupcake Wars, the host is BEYOND ANNOYING. He’s always saying these melodramatic snarky comments (worse than mine, I swear). But, it has rekindled my obsession with baking. Which has been overshadowed lately with my obsession for felt and leather.
I can’t stop thinking about cupcakes…which brings me to donuts. Because I LOVE this print from Ashmae, (I may have shared it before)
I think the sentiment is true. Except I do not agree that cupcakes are passe or not worth our time and attention. Yes they were a huge trend for a while, but I don’t think that makes them evil or uncool. How could something so delicious be uncool? Sometimes we denounce trends once they go “mainstream” for the sake of being hip perhaps? But I won’t do it with cupcakes.
But I have made my fair share of cupcakes, and I’m ready for a new challenge. And that challenge is donuts. I’ve hesitated in the past because deep frying always makes your house smell horrible. And I have a small house. But the donut’s siren call is too sweet and sensual to ignore.
I have a few recipes in mind, but if you have any that YOU’VE tried, I would love to be directed to them. I guess if you have any that look good, let me know. But I have found dozens that LOOK good. I’m more interested in tried and tasted.
Either way. I will most likely be sharing my adventures in donut land. For my sharing cannot be stopped, and there are many calories to consume!!!
