Naughty Sugar Doughnuts Part II

So a while back I made some sugar doughnuts (see post). I thought they came out alright. However, I had trouble cooking them at the right temperature. I kept getting the outside of the doughnuts browned way too fast leaving the inside doughy. So I decided to try again.

All you need:

  • Olive Oil in Deep Fryer @ 325°
  • Canned Biscuits (Pillsbury Simply Buttermilk Biscuits)
  • Melted Butter
  • Sugar & Cinnamon 
  • Powdered Sugar (new topping option)

Instead of using the Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits that I used last time I decided to try just regular biscuits to give them an airier consistency.
I used Pillsbury Simply Buttermilk Biscuits
 The second thing I decided to try was to do them in our deep fryer instead of the frying pan. I figured it would solve my temperature problem.

Sweet Pea Baby Shower Favors

I wanted to do fun baby shower guest favors for my sister-in-law. I preferred to do something different then food. So I thought it would be cute to give out pea seeds. My sister-in-law loves to garden so it fit perfect.

I decided to go with peas to do the whole "sweet pea" theme. I had also contemplated doing flower seeds. If you do flowers it could say "So and So's baby is about to bloom."

I bought my seeds at
Lowe's Home Improvement.

Diaper Cakes

As many parents of babies know you fly through diapers. Then on top of it babies grow like weeds, FAST. Our daughter flew through size 1 and 2 and we were left with a bunch of too small diapers. Luckily it seems like everyone we know is having babies so I knew they would not go to waste. Plus I have always wanted to make a diaper cakes so this all worked out perfect.

Check out my first ever diaper cake:
