mini donut tins for national donut day

happy national donut day everybody!
in honor of one of my favorite food holidays,
i made some donuts.

errr..kind of.
i was gonna make a donut recipe for you but heck there are too many to choose from and i got overwhelmed so i am not only gonna have a real donut (or 2 or 3) today, 
but i am also going to make little ones to give away.

these just take a few steps and are really easy to make.
i'll let the pics do the talking.
you can get these tins here.

i just grabbed a couple bottles of 
multi-colored sprinkles that i had.
you can fill them up with small candy or a trinket. 
i chose to fill them up with more donuts.
these donuts to be exact that you can get at jo ann's.
have you tasted these icing decorations?
they're just like sugar tabs and that's enough to call them candy.
plus i am filling a donut with donuts if that makes any sense.
now i must admit i had no idea what the mod podge would do to the sprinkles so i was quite surpirsed to find this the next morning:
but they all worked out!
i plan to make a bunch of these and give them away.
wouldn't they be cute as a little party favor?
ok so now i am off to eat a donut.
happy donut eating day to you too!


  1. I've been craving donuts since we had some Holy Donuts in Maine a few weeks ago. Now after seeing your cute donut tins I think I might need to make a trip to the donut shop and get my fix.

    1. hope you got your fix Beth! there's nothing like a donut to make the day better :)

  2. Yeah, Beth, me too! Shame on you, BBFF, for luring me off my diet (which I happen to be doing very well on)! But if I make 'em and give 'em away, I'm good! Really cute idea, girlfriend, as usual! I'll try not to go into any store that has donuts, today. Because I really am tempted. Dona

    1. well lucky for you Dona these are calorie free, well at least without the donut candy in them! we'll figure out a way to keep to your diet BBFF! heehee ;)

  3. These are absolutely the cutest little donut tins ever, so cute I want to eat them!

    1. oh gosh i think they would be 100% cuter if you made mini donut cookies in them Kim! you could make any cookies in my book! :)

  4. What a cute idea, I didn't even know it was donut day until all the pictures starting turning up in my insta feed.

    1. i missed donut day a few years ago because i never knew there was even such a thing-lol needless to say, it's now embedded in my head ;) thanks SO much for coming by Linda!
