Freshly fried doughnuts dipped in a sweet orange glaze, these Orange Creamsicle Cake Doughnuts taste just like Summer!
So I know I mentioned to you that I had big news to share with you today. It turns out I now have TWO big things to share with you today!
The first being the more obvious one: I LEARNED HOW TO DEEP FRY DOUGHNUTS! More important, I overcame my deeply-rooted fear of frying and now my fellow fried-food lovers…
“I believe I can fry,
I believe doughnuts will be mine,
I think about them every night and day,
So delicious in every way.
I believe I can pour,
Homemade glaze over a dozen moreee
I believe I can fry.”
That song came out of my mouth in real life, friends.
Yep. I know you’re jealous of my mad song-writing skills.
As I watched golden brown doughnuts rise to the surface of the bubbling oil, I felt the need to hum I Believe I Can Fly, and then change the words to suit my frying frenzy.
Now I will continue proclaiming my love for these doughnuts momentarily, but the other big news came out of nowhere last week. You may have noticed a few new ads running on the site…
I got accepted to BlogHer!
For those of you who keep up with my crazy shenanigans and odd ramblings about food, you know that I very much want to take my blog to the professional level. I’ve always loved writing and once I started blogging (almost three years ago!) I knew that this was the perfect medium for me to develop as a writer. So for me, getting accepted into the community of female bloggers that make up BlogHer is huge.
Kermit waving his arms around huge.
I know I still have a long way to go to reach the rest of my goals (cough cough On Sugar Mountain cookbook, cough) but for now, I shall celebrate this little victory by eating ALL THE DOUGHNUTS.
Well, I would if I hadn’t already eaten most of them before writing this post. I just couldn’t help myself! They were calling to me with their fluffy, fried interiors and their sweet, creamsicle glaze.
Speaking of which…
DUDE THIS GLAZE. It’s liquid creamsicle and you
need want it in your life. It’s like being one step closer to Summer with every bite.
I’ll be back on Wednesday with another deep-fried treat (forgive me but typing #can’tstopwon’tstop feels appropriate at this point) so be sure to check back first thing in the morning!
