These doughnuts are light and fluffy and delicious. They are seriously the best homemade doughnuts I have ever had! The rich buttermilk and flavorful vanilla paste make these doughnuts somewhat magical…and that’s even before you add the marbled icing.

The best part about the icing (besides how cool it looks) is that it is super easy and fun to do. And as long as you put plenty of parchment down before you start, your cleanup will be a lot easier than mine! Happy marbling!

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
