the second dozen + the second giveaway! (closed)



I'm a donut pan idea or two away from being a quarter way through my 101 Donut Pan Ideas project! I recently completed the second dozen ideas, and I'm loving them all. It's awesome that I get a memory out of each of these photos. The panna cotta was done the last weekend before the pool we love to swim at closed for the season, and we ate them when we got home from a day in the water. We burned a fire starter when Stella was home sick one day last week, and I texted the photo of the hard cooked egg to David one night telling him his deconstructed egg salad was waiting for him when he got home late from work. I don't know what's compelling me to keep going on these things, but I am a woman obsessed. I am The Donut Queen, as this lady likes to call me.

In honor of being almost a quarter of the way to my goal, I'm hosting another giveaway today. Two donut pans will be sent to you directly from Wilton, the company who makes the pans and who has been quite generous since I contacted them a few months ago about this project. Additionally, I have a small collection of a few less-to-non-perishable donuts I've made that I'd love to send you!

To be entered in the giveaway, which will be chosen at random on Tuesday, October 30th, please leave me a quick note below in the comments letting me know which was your favorite of the second dozen donut pan ideas (shown in the photo and linked in the list above). You could leave a comment on the corner blog Facebook page if for some reason it is hard to do here. It will be really interesting for me to see which one folks like the most. I have a hard time choosing myself!

Thinking of ideas for this project is sort of like counting sheep for me. I do it many nights before bed, and get some great ideas from that ritual. Frequently David and Stella (and sometimes even Oliver) talk about them over dinner. I have a GIANT list of ideas ready to be brought to life, but I only can manage to do one or two donut projects a week. I'm going to ramp up my efforts in the next few months, because the holidays are just begging for donuts!

Let me know your favorite donut so far and you'll have a chance at winning. Good luck! I have more pans (and probably more donuts) to give away over the next few months, so there will be more chances to win. And if you already have a set, try for some more. I have eleven pans and they are always busy! 

Here's the fine print from Wilton:


Contest is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States of America, Washington, D.C. (excluding US territories and possessions) or Canada (excluding Quebec), who are are eighteen (18) years of age or older. Void where prohibited by law.

Thank you so much for reading these posts and being so supportive of this silly-yet-compelling pursuit of mine. I am working in the kitchen with ingredients I've never used before and gaining a lot of confidence as a baker and beyond. It is a joy for me! xoxoxoxo

    1. I need to give you some, lady! Thank you for all your support, you are so kind!

      And the "you-know-what"....I actually talked to a boat builder at great length at a birthday party recently who knows everything there is to know about "you-know-what", and am much closer to making your dream a reality! xo

  5. So difficult to choose just one favorite, Tiffanie! I love the panna cotta, and the chalk donuts are awesome...but I guess I'll go with the glazed sweet loaf donuts. They look so sweet and homey and enticing :) They are the first recipe I'd want to try.
    p.s. This project is fabulous, it's totally a book in the making!

  7. The chalks! Definitely! And the life preservers! I can't wait 'til this is a book. I'm also loving the magazine styled shoots. Keep it up Tiffanie! It's looking amazing so far!

  8. I am a major fan of this project and am having a hard time choosing only one as my favorite. A three-way tie: Gumdrops (can't resist the gem-colored jumbo candies), Teething Rings (remind me of my sweet baby gumming them), Madeleines (genius idea, Stella), and OK four-way tie, have to include Marshmallows too (because they work so perfectly in a cup of hot cocoa). Can't wait to see the next dozen! xoxo
