Whelp, I dropped the ball on this one, big time. I think you know I think about donuts all damn day long, but only through friends did it come to my attention that today is National Donut Day. Today would've been the best day to roll out another donut pan idea. Who knew? Not I!
Here is a history of National Donut Day. It comes from nice beginnings. Believe it or not, I already knew the word torus. Of course I did.
Check out this donut garland project from a paper artist I admire greatly, Brittany from The House That Lars Built.
I love real donuts, but I really, really love anything cleverly shaped like a donut! Here are eight summery donut pan ideas for you to try from my archive. I hope you have a fantastic National Donut Day and great weekend. I'll be back on Monday with donut pan idea number 52!
This one's a no-brainer. You have to keep cool, and this is a pretty way to do it!
Perfect hand pies for berry season.
These were a very fun and rewarding project. I might do red, white and blue for the Fourth!
Roll your ear of corn in one of these. Spectacular!
Also for berry season, the donut pans make perfect bases for strawberry shortcakes!
These are pretty sophisticated, as far as donuts go.
You gotta use the backside of those pans! And you gotta fill these with sorbet!
These take a bit of effort, but they are fun, fun, fun! Donut-shaped sidewalk chalk!
