such a tease

by Lori and Michelle on January 27, 2012

Happy Friday everyone!

now that we got you thinking about making easy mini cakes it is time to dream about


we were going through our million photos and came across these bad boys

not sure what it is about donuts that we just love because growing up we were never really donut people. mostly pancakes and cereal girls.

maybe it is the fact now that we can bake them and make them a little healthier. or maybe we are just obsessed because they are so cute. and fun to photograph!


we played around with our photos here as you can tell. love adding layers over the photos to give them a different feel.

we shot these donut pictures in the late afternoon and the sun was not that strong, so we did have to do some editing to these photos to give them life again. most of our photos are done in aperture priority but the one above with the glaze and spoon was done on shutter priority. for more info on what camera we use click here.

we are trying to explore our camera functions again. it has been awhile. practice makes perfect! we still love using photoshop with our editing. what would we do without youtube? we are always learning something new, so many great and not so great tutorials.

and now for the moment when you will hate us 😉

stay tuned for tomorrow’s baked donut recipe! it is a winner. we took an old favorite and jazzed it up some.

any guesses???

Wow—-the donuts look awesome! I was never a donut person…but there’s some appeal to the shape of donuts—like it’s symbolic of being a treat or something :-)
Now when I make donuts, they’re not all that unhealthy (similar to yours)…but they still feel like an indulgence!
