Heart Shaped Doughnut! Cinnamon Lovers Unite!

I made these heart shaped vanilla donuts for St. Patrick's Day with the full intention of making a green glaze. However, I didn't take into account that cinnamon is…brown.  After making the cinnamon glaze (super easy – powdered sugar, a few teaspoons of milk and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon) it was too dark to dye green. But hey, they came out pretty awesome anyway!

A friend gave me this adorable heart shaped donut pan as part of my Christmas gift, and I’m just getting around to using it now HA. I actually got both the vanilla donut and glaze recipe straight from the pan (they have a chocolate donut recipe also, yum).

After preparing the batter, these adorable treats take only about 5 minutes to bake! You can be eating donuts in the comfort of your own home (or apartment…or condo…or wherever you live) and god are they good. I love experimenting with different molds and shapes – and of course, decorations. Even though they weren’t green, at least we had them with a Guinness. That makes them Irish, right? Hope you guys enjoyed!

Anyone have any donut recipes they’d like to share? =)
