Identity Crisis Cake Doughnuts

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pure Via®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PureViaSweet

Some days I wake up in the morning and think I am Blake Lively.

However, I am quickly reminded that I am not… When I turn over, trying to grab for Ryan Reynolds’ man boobs… Only to embrace… Filbert.

I’m not the only one who sometimes thinks they’re something they’re actually not…

Tomato looks like a duck

This tomato thinks it’s a duck

potato bearThis potato thinks it’s a bear

Turkey Dog

And this over-sized rat thinks it’s a turkey! Someone grab the gravy!

Vianessa holding doughnut batter

Hmmm… Thanks Vianessa but… I don’t think that’s gravy.

GiGi and Vianessa in the kitchen

Yeah, WTF is that?!

Glad you asked! It’s actually squash trying to be a doughnut and a doughnut trying to be… A TURKEY!

Turkey Shaped Squash Donut, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Vegan

Man, being a turkey must be pretty finger-licking good (oh wait, that’s chicken) because everyone/thing seems to want to be one!

Emmy Rossum turkey hat

Well, I DON’T want to be one… I just want to eat one… Or food that’s shaped like one… And you will too! Which is WHY Vianessa and I created squash doughnuts that are shaped like turkeys… Or what we like to call: Identity Crisis Cake Doughnuts!

Vegans will feel like they’re eating an animal without actually eating an animal… What UPLOOPHOLE! (these doughnuts are vegan).

If you want to have your “turkey” and eat it too… Gobble up the latest GiGi Eats video!

GiGi and Vianessa in the kitchenSO TELL ME…

  • How do you feel about TURKEY-SHAPED foods?
  • What celebrity is a victim of BEING SOMETHING HE/SHE is NOT?
  • What is/are your favorite doughnut toppings? 
  • If you have a pet… Do you dress it up? SHAME ON YOU – LOL!
  • Are you an appliance licker? Ever cut your tongue on a blade?
  • Have you ever tried… THESE?! 


  1. Whoa. That’s an intense identity crisis! Not sure if I can handle it all. I remember Burger King or Hardee’s, someplace had liked shaped chicken nuggets. They freaked me out. Anything more than a cookie that’s shaped like something else freaks me out a little. But a doughnut… That’s close to a cookie, right? Maybe this will pass the freak out test… Maybe.

    You > Blake

    • Bah ha ha ha ha! I am not sure you’d consider these cake doughnuts anything close to a cookie – but if it gets you to eat them then… YESSSSS, they’re JUST LIKE cookies! 😉

      And hmmmm are you trying to get on my GOOD SIDE so I can make you some of these because I am pretty sure Blake is definitely a hottie hot hot! ha ha ha.

  2. Good morning GiGi! You always make my mornings brighter and I love the potato bear! I’m obsessed with squash too and put it in everything!
    Have a great day!

    • I’m glad I could BRIGHTEN your day!! Has the sun come up for you over there yet? LOL!

      Enjoy your Tuesday… And I hope it includes some SQUASH!

  3. Haha, the tomato and potato are pretty funny 😉 This recipe looks delicious, but would it work with a different squash/plain ole pumpkin? I’m not sure if the one place I have ever found acorn squash still has it.

    Does my kid count as a pet? Haha, I do dress him up … with matching accessories and everything. My husband just can’t coordinate the kid’s outfits as well as I can 😉

    • You could certainly sub in any squash into this recipe, I just wanted to showcase this mysterious WHITE ACORN! ha ha.

      Ahhhhh! OF COURSE your kid counts as a pet, LMFAO!!!! I mean, why on earth else do you have kids? They’re meant to be dressed up 😉

  4. Wanted to dress Salem up but he attacked me and I spent Halloween hiding in the closet from him.

  5. Is this even better than the revered spaghetti squash?

    I had Tofurkey once at a vegan Thanksgiving. Not even Vienessa’s gravy could save that bird!

    I once dressed up my German Shepherd as Miss America for Halloween! He was stunning with his sash and tiara!

    • I won’t lie to you, this squash is pretty dang amazing. Now each squash has their own defining flavor profile, but this squash is mild enough to really take the place of anything!

      AND OMG NO YOU DID NOT! I have 5 German Shepherds and I know for a fact….. They’re NOT into clothing! LOL!!!!

      PS: GROSS to Tofurkey! I don’t know how vegans do Thanksgiving – makes no sense to me! LOL!

  6. Hahaha – that “rat” that looks like a turkey comment had me squirting my coffee all over! That poor Chihuahua!
    Yes, I am an appliance licker and I would be licking that batter off – even a sharp blade! I ADORE baking with squash and no – I don’t discriminate on how my food is shaped – no matter the shape or size – I will eat it – or at least try it! I love y’alls idea of baking and then “frying” these beauts!

    • 😀 That was all Vianessa’s idea! I was simply going to chow down minus frying, but I am glad I listened to her because um… YUM! 😉 I would fry that over-sized rat in coconut oil and eat it if it were socially acceptable…. LMFAO!

  7. You are hilarious! These look amazing and so unique. Love the combo of ingredients :)

    • I am drooling just thinking of them…. And I really want to make more… RIGHT NOW! Mmmmmmm! Well, that’s it, I am so doing it today!

  8. OMG! I love your sense of humor. I can totally relate to making food with an identity crisis. I just can’t help myself. These sound seriously good though, no matter what they are.

  9. I love this queer foods–it’d totally buy them regardless of how weird they look. :) thanks for sharing those pictures and for the recipe. Love that it’s low carb and low sugar!

  10. Where are the Sprinkles???

    • I AM WORKING on a sugar-free sprinkles recipe…. IT IS DIFFICULT! ha ha.

      • yes yes, i want the sprinkles. GIMME! and i don’t even like turkey, so turkey shaped food.. NO!

        • You won’t eat my doughnut because it’s turkey shaped!?!?! Well, if it makes much of a difference, the shape SORT OF got destroyed……… When we were taking them out of the mold, only those two survived! ha ha ha!

  11. I licked a steak knife once when I was young (8ish) and I thought it was never going to stop bleeding – I didn’t want to tell my grandma (I was at her house at the time) but I didn’t know what to do. Last appliance I ever licked!!!

  12. You’re recipes blow my mind and so do those pics! LOL!

  13. Nice! My vegetarian heart approves of these. Although I’d rather not pretend to be eating meat (hence the lack of tofurkey at my t-day table) these sound like they just taste delicious, no matter the shape!

    • Ha Ha! I knew I was going to get a comment like that 😉 Just enjoy these donuts as if I NEVER said ANYTHING about turkeys! LOL!

  14. Is that turtle stuffed animals yours? Is this what you sleep with at night?!!? That’s not a doughnut, stop trying to lie to me! 😛 Have a great one GiGi! -Iva

    • OMG it’s not a turtle – Its a giraffe!!!!! AHHH HA HA AH AHA HA AH AHA HA! And yes, it’s mine… And Filbert may or may not be snuggled in my bed right now… AHHH HA HA HA AH!

      AND GIRLLLLLLL this is as close to a DOUGHNUT as my mouth will experience! 😉 You need to come to my kitchen so I can make it for you!

  15. Haha, this is so cute!
    (I LOVE that potato bear!)

    • Isn’t it adorable?! HA HA HA! I would not eat it… Oh wait, I don’t like potatoes to begin with so, yep, I would’t eat it! LOL!

  16. I will eat anything that has a turkey shape, taste or ingredient. I love to eat me some turkey!!!…except jive turkey. I stay away from those suckas!

  17. turkey shapped donuts…we think you are onto something BIG 😉

    we love topping our donuts with chocolate or cinnamon sugar!

    Are you an appliance licker? ?? No comment haha

  18. These are so fun! Talk about seasonal! I’m sure that they are delicious as well! Lovely recipe! YUM!

    • OMG too delicious – I had to throw them in the freezer! ha ha! But of course, knowing myself, I will eat them frozen, BAH HA HA!

  19. I think it’s very weird that Pure Via is giving away Jewel music?? WTF? I still haven’t made anything with my white acorn, but I want to see if it really tastes like bread. I’m going to guess I won’t think it does, but that’s OK!. I love the pants, BUSTED, but you don’t care so it’s not really busted. And eff this noise I am your soul mate bitch.

    • TRUST ME – YOU ARE MY SOUL MATE – ha ha ha ha ha ha! And you and I will eat these on our SOUL MATE WEDDING DAY! 😉

  20. Well whatever they are they look good enough to eat!

  21. These combine all my favorite things– turkey, squash, donuts, existential crises, and coconut milk! These look SO yummy- you know when you see something and you’re like “bam that is exactly what I’m in the mood for right now” I’m going through that right this moment.

    • AHHHH well then I hope you have ALL of these ingredients… And a turkey doughnut mold, AH HA – so you can GET BAKING!!!! 😉

  22. I am a serial appliance licker…it’s a problem! But seriously, love the uniqueness of this recipe…it looks amazing!!!

  23. i want to gobble until i wobble with these tasty tidbits ! I am such a utensil/bowl/plate licker, AND I DON’T CARE. I LIVE LIFE ON THE EDGE

  24. Such a creative recipe missy!

    Nice! Stevia is my favorite sweetener, and I almost always buy PureVia.

    • YAY!!!! :) Stevia is amazing right? I would be DEAD without it! ha ha ah! Have you tried Natvia baking stevia?? It’s the BEST by far!

  25. These look awesome- I’m finally opening my bag of coconut flour so chances are I will be making these sooner rather than later :)!

    • YES! And I cannot believe you haven’t opened that coconut flour bag yet! Warning: You will NEVER be able to close it 😉

  26. Holy Yummy Batman!!
    Seriously! Where do you come up with such ridiculously amazing food?!? That’s freakin’ AWESOME!!!! Not to mention, it’s probably going to keep me up for a while, causing my mouth to water incessantly. I blame you.

    2. Kristen Stewart. She’s a victim of thinking she’s an actress… Sometimes delusions are so real, you can’t see where they end, and where they begin!
    5. Yup – totally a knife licker! Never cut myself while licking though. Maybe because I keep them sharp?
    6. Umm… Yeah I have!!! :)

    • AH HA HA AH AH! MAKE THESE PRONTO!!!!!!! Making them will keep you up just a little longer, but all the racket you’ll make in the kitchen will be WORTH IT and your wife will LOVE YOU for it, even if she’s mad at you at first for keeping her up 😉

      And don’t worry, Kristen Stewart will NEVER get any of these, she doesn’t deserve them, ha ah ah!

  27. I think you need a batch of those waiting for me next week… man boobs and all.

  28. OMG, can I come over and have these??? They look SO delicious! I am gladly giving them an identitiy – when they are in my belly.
    Oh yes, I cut my tongue all the time when greedily licking all the raw batter or whatever is hanging on that knife. Shame on me.
    Is it possible that Madonna thinks she is Jesus, but she is not? Or on a lighter note, she thinks she is a teen, but she is not?

    • If you think flying over to LA is worth it for these doughnuts (which it IS) THEN YES!!!!! I will welcome you with OPEN ARMS! 😉

      AND I HATE MADONNA – don’t EVEN get me started! LOL!

  29. As per usual everything about your post cracked me up! Especially the part about Filbert. I don’t have a Filbert but I do have a Sheepie. Basically a stuffed sheep and you tell how creative I got with naming it.

    I wish I had a cat to dress up, but our landlord won’t let us have one. Maybe if I dressed it up in baby’s clothes I could pretend it was a child instead?

    Yum yum yum to this recipe, it looks finger licking good!

  30. Haha! I love these and so would my littles.

  31. YUM!! I want these now… why do I have to go to work after finding good food to make?!?!???

    • Ah ha ha! Now all you’re going to be doing at work is thinking about turkey shaped squash donuts – lol. Imagine your boss asks you a question and your response…. Gobble Gobble. LOL. Maybe you should keep reading blogs until AFTER work 😉

  32. Did you say Doughnuts?? I’m IN!! Gosh, I miss them! These look fabulous and I love that they’re healthy. I use coconut milk in my protein shake every day and I love the health benefits.
    Turkey doughnuts are hilarious! I can’t say mine will look like turkeys but I can promise to ‘gobble’ them up in a hurry! GREAT recipe, GiGi! Fun video, too.

    • I haven’t had a donut in YEARS BEYOND YEARS!!! So these….. AMAZING! HA HA AH! Now I am sure someone who frequents Dunkin Donuts might not agree but… WHATEVER – they’re just stupid. Yes, that’s my amazing insult to them! AH HA HA HA!

      PS: These would probably bake better if they were NOT shaped like turkeys – just sayin’ 😉

  33. Have you seen the turdunken?? Talk about epic! The closest I’ve come is getting my cats some canned turdunken food at the pet store. According to them, it’s the jam!

    • Ugh. I have certainly seen such a thing, but never tried – I doooooo kind of want to though. Maybe I should MAKE ONE? LOL!!!!!

      And there is Cat Food Turducken?!?! OH GOODNESS! LMFAO!

  34. I know you don’t eat dairy but I did see turkey shaped butter once! Or was it butter shaped turkey? I totally confused myself.
    I don’t even really like squash that much but I would totally eat these, I want you to know.

    • AHHHHHH HA HA HA! Turkey shaped butter – turkey shaped into butter…. Butter shaped turkey – butter shaped into a turkey! 😉

      AND YOU WILL LIKE SQUASH after you try this recipe, JUST SAYIN’! ha ha ha

  35. Super hilarious post, and I love your identity crisis muffins! Why can’t a muffin be a turkey, especially one that sounds as tasty as that? :)

  36. LOL @ What up Loophole. Idk why that made me laugh so hard haha
    And like I said on FB, I make identity crisis food all the time, but it’s usually accidental whoops

    • Maybe because you could HEAR me saying it when you read it? I say WHAT UP a lot – because I think I am so cool, but in actuality, I am the biggest loser! AHH HA HA AH AH!!!!

      Also, I want to see a picture of your recent identity crisis creation!

  37. Oh my goodness you are hilarious! You had me cracking up over here. Plus it’s a great recipe!

  38. Love alllllllll the donuts!! But glazed are my favorite.

  39. Can the flax egg be substituted with egg whites?

  40. You … made ME turkeys. Vegan turkeys. I’m so touched. Minus the missing turkey-shaped pan – dangit, Germany! – I will try these. We might not celebrate Thanksgiving over here but who says I can’t celebrate eating turkey either way??
    My view on turkey-shaped foods is two-sided: as long as they’re NOT turkey I think they’re pretty rad. But I’m still somewhat weirded out. You can tell I’m not the vegetarian eating those meatless burgers/sausages/balls on the regular. That would be a little like using a Santa-shaped cookie cutter for actual meat burgers. Who could dare eating meaty Santa??? Murderers.
    On a side note I’m most definitely an appliance licker. And I hurt my tongue last week. On a fork that I used to mash bananas. Don’t you dare tell anybody! (:

  41. Who can resist doughnuts? Not me! And all the better if they’re shaped like animals. Very fun idea! That’s a great baking mold. And a great video! Thanks.

    • I can certainly resist donuts at a pastry or donut shop, however, when it comes to the ones I make…. Yep, I just cannot stop eating them! 😉

  42. That looks so delicious! I’ve been wanting to cook with squash more, never thought to use it as a baked good! Still can’t believe turkey season is among us! #wowlinkup

    • Right! I am so excited it’s TURKEY SEASON :)

      I hope you make these very soon, they’re a wonderful way to increase your squash consumption and DAMN GOOD if I do say so myself – ha ha!

  43. Love that these doughnuts are shaped like turkey! Also, saw your E! video. I totally agree with you on voting for Ryan Reynolds… 😉

    • AHHH HA HA AH AH AHA! Right? I mean, ugly people in office – yeah, not gunna pay attention, LMFAO!!!! OKAY but seriously, this is not how I actually think – SWEARRR!! 😉

  44. Oooh, these look yummy! I’ll happily eat turkey shaped foods, as long as it contains no turkey, haha :) P.s Filbert is too cute.

  45. I want to make these with ground turkey. Is that ironic or obvious?

  46. Well finally off and looked forward to watching this. instead of a bucket list I have a GiGi list, so many recipes I want to try making. Would some toasted coconut on top be to coconutty ? The video was fun and those sweats are kicking it old school :) I had a bow on Buggs once, he was holiday Bugg for about 5 seconds. I think I’m Vin Diesel sometimes than I swerve back into my lane. Thanks for the healthy treat and laughs.

    • BAH HA HA HA HA AHA HA!!! Swerve back into your lane 😉 I was about to ask for your autograph and ask you how it was filming the most recent Fast & The Furious, ha!

      And no, you can certainly add some toasted coconut on top, the doughnuts alone at not very coconut flavored at all :) They’re just DELICIOUS!

  47. That looks good! I’ll eat it!

  48. You crack me up all the time. But this looks like a great recipe.

    • 😉 I am glad I can make you giggle, however, this is just how my brain works – bah ha ha! It’s an interesting FUN HOUSE in there – lol.

      And yes, this recipe = SO GOOD 😀

  49. Who’d have thought a tomato could look like a duck?! And ‘Gwen stefani thinks she’s an egg’ made me LOL!
    Love the sound of this recipe, must try! #brilliantblogposts

    • That tomato is BRILLIANT right?! If I found that, I would NEVER eat it and try and preserve it as long as possible, ha ah! 😉 As for Gwen…. Yeah, no sunny side up eggs for me! lol

  50. I seriously LOVE that you used squash to make donuts. You are a smart woman!

  51. You are so funny! I love the pictures of the wanna be…hehehe!
    Have a great week :)

  52. Oh man these donuts have a lot going on! Thanks for sharing! #wowlinkup

  53. I love it when you make a recipe for me. That’s true, right? As someone who made a special trip to Whole Foods last week just to pick up a vegan doughnut, I thank you.

    • Whenever I make my recipes, I ALWAYS think of you and how I can make them vegan – plus I cannot eat eggs, ha – sometimes I just cannot, but when it comes to baked goods, that’s all I do :)

  54. LOL every donut is trying to be something its not because they naturally have a hole in their head (GET IT?) 😉

    Choc Chip Uru

  55. Haha, Gigi! Your posts always make me laugh! I am going to attempt this using pumpkin this evening!! I have sooo much coconut flour I have no idea what to do with it!!

  56. alert, alert — yesterday Nov 5th was National Donut Day – there are 2 donut days easy year. Guess I’m a day late and a donut short

    • I HOPE YOU GOT YOUR BAKE ON TODAY! I am PUMPED that I actually posted a blog RELATIVE to something on the calendar! HA HA AH! I never post relevant blogs! 😉

  57. I love turkey and turkey shaped everything. I asked my husband for a sweater that said “gobble, gobble” because I obviously need it for Thanksgiving…he refused. 😉

  58. This looks amazing! I am trying this recipe out this week FOR SURE!

  59. These look awesome! I’ve never tried making doughnuts before because they kind of scare me but I love that these are baked and vegan. Plus, there’s squash in it and sneaking in veggies wherever possible is a good thing :)

    • These should NOT intimidate you at all, because there are so few ingredients :) All you need is a donut pan, or you could honestly just bake this like a cake if you’d like!

  60. Ok, for a second I thought you were going to try to put turkey in doughnuts hahaha!

  61. Ain’t nobody gonna tell these doughnuts who to be haha. And I love a good turkey hat. One of my friends got a full cooked turkey suit (like you couldn’t see his head, and his legs where the turkey legs). It was maybe the most hilarious thing I have ever seen in my life.

  62. I think it sounds like a yummy recipe! I made spaghetti squash spaghetti for dinner last night, so I am up for anything with a healthy twist right now.

  63. I can honestly say I have never eaten a turkey shaped squash donut. But, I love turkey, i love squash and i love donuts, so I think I would love these too!

  64. Ooo. A turkey shaped donut for the season! Cute idea. =) I never tried a squash donut before. Interesting idea. I love chocolate on my donuts. =) and sprinkles!

  65. I love the pictures and the video! So much fun!!! Potato bear :)

    • Thank you Mira! :) And don’t you want a potato bear now? I think I want to create a potato bear stuffed animal! LOL!

  66. Awwww Filbert is super cute!!!! I’d love to wake up next to him :) cool recipe, too-I’ll have to add it to my list #wowlinkup

  67. Love the potato bear, how cute is that…love the oversizes rat lol ! took cute. thanks for being part of the linkz party.

  68. No time to watch the video right now but I know it will be hilarious cause you are hilarious!!!!! :) That recipe looks delish!!!!!!! You rock!

    BTW, I noticed another comment elsewhere from you on having issue with people taking advantage – want me to come punch them out??? :)

  69. I don’t have any pets but I would probably be too lazy to dress mine up anyway! I like the turkey shaped doughnuts!

    • Ha Ha! I am so lazy too when it comes to that stuff 😉

      And YOU WILL LOVE the doughnuts when you try them. I just ate the last 3 I had… WOW! OMG! Too good to be true lol

  70. Favorite donut topping – chocolate and sprinkles. I have cats but they won’t let me dress them up.. bummer! :(

  71. Now that is creative!! Turkey shaped food I’m not so sure about-I like pumpkin shaped food

  72. hahah what a great video!

  73. You crack me up! I’d have no qualms eating turkey donuts…especially since your healthified them and didn’t actually put any turkey into them :)
    P.S. our best dog costume was Moammar gooddoggi (all my son’s doing).

  74. Ok, that tomato and potato are freaking awesome! And, my friend, I love that these are vegan, wow!! I’m a little scared of the stevia though, still, lol! For me, I would just use coconut sugar. I have never had squash in a donut before, but I bet that makes them super, duper moist! My favorite donut topping is chocolate icing…omg. Haven’t had one in a long time. I do have a vegan chocolate donut and icing recipe that I haven’t posted…needs a little perfecting still. :)

  75. That teddy bear potato. Oh my goodness!

  76. Can you mail some of these to me please? I just want to taste it before I invest and make it myself. Looks good, ingredients have me giving y’all the side eye. LOL #wowlinkup

    • Ah ha ha ha ha!! OH NO you MUST invest some time in making them, they’re actually very easy to me, promise!!! I just ate the left overs last night — HOLY MOUTH SWOONING! LOL!!!

  77. I love cake donuts and these look amazing! I also love that I could eat more than one and not feel sick or guilty. Awesome. I love that tomato duck and potato bear too!

  78. vegetarianmamma (Cindy) says:

    Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays Party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! :) I can’t wait to see what you share next time!

  79. OMG. I need a turkey cookie cutter ASAP. This is amazing. I need to make omg. That’s literally all I can think/say, because I am so in love with the idea of turkey shaped donuts.

  80. This recipe is great. I love squash so it is right up my ally..oh and I do have a 9 lb. chihuahua that I dress up every year for halloween – this year she was super puppy :) #wowlinkup

  81. Oh wow, these are neat! I kind of love that they are in the shape of a turkey. I also love Gwen Stefani as an egg. Thanks for joining my link party :)

  82. I love how your FIRST thought when you tasted the white acorn squash was TURKEY-SHAPED VEGAN SOY-FREE DAIRY-FREE SQUASH DONUTS. Weirdo! Also flax/chia eggs are lifesavers for vegans! I wish more people knew about them!

    • Ah ha ha ha aha! That is JUST how my brain works! LOL!!!!!!! 😉 I also ADORE the chia/flax egg – When I first went EGG FREE I had no clue what to do, BUT now my life is SAVED! ha ha

  83. A doughnut that looks like a turkey!?! What the what :) Very cute, seasonal appropriate recipe!

  84. Hi GiGi,
    With coconut flour, ground flaxseed, acorn squash, coconut mlk and stevia for sweetness, these identity crisis doughnuts will be just the treat I need for my Thanksgiving feast! Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious recipe with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop. I appreciate it!

  85. Okay Gwen Stefani as an egg? Yeah right I don’t believe her. She needs more people I tell ya lol. And a doughnuts that’s shaped like a turkey.. priceless. Love it

  86. Thumbs up for TURKEY-SHAPED food! And long life to turkeys :)

  87. Hysterical! And that poor dog…that’s just not fair…

  88. Thanks for coming and linking up at our Happy Holidays Link Party. We’d love to see you back next week starting Saturdays @7pm ET on The Midnight Baker from now until Christmas!

  89. I don’t need all Thanksgiving food to be shaped like turkeys, but this looks delish! Pinning!

    Thank you for linking up with Creative Style Linkup! Have a blessed weekend!

  90. Oh this recipe looks so good!

  91. This looks tasty! As for your questions… I don’t care about the shape of my food, as long as I like the taste. I don’t know the first thing about celebrities, but Gwen is definitely not an egg! My favorite doughnut topping will always be chocolate. We’ve never dressed up our pups before this year, and she actually liked it! The other one would run away in fear! Never cut my tongue on a blade, but my sister and I always fight over the inside of the mixer! :)

  92. Those doughnuts look good! Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party! I’ve pinned you post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board.

  93. Thanks for having me on, I had a blast and our ‘fauxnuts’ were delicious!

    • GIRL WE NEED TO MAKE THEM AGAIN because they were tooooo good to be true but I gotta find that BREAD SQUASH again! lol!

  94. The over-sized rat is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

  95. Hey!
    Because acorn squashes come in all different size…I’m hoping you could tell me how many cups or grams of acorn squash you used in this recipe?


  96. Turkey shaped foods FREAK me out! LOL

    This recipe sounds interesting though. I’ll have to check it out.

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #CHRISTMASbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely evening and a very Merry Christmas!

    • Do they really?? That is so funny!! Feel free to shape these doughnuts anyway you please – LOL!
      Merry Christmas to you too! 😉

  97. This is gold! Your post made me laugh. I love animal shaped food! My favorite doughnut topping is chocolate sprinkles and I will definitely dress up my pet :)

    • Ah ha ah! Gold huh?! Well these donuts do have a slight golden tint and I mean I guess if gold had a flavor, it would taste something like these 😉 Aw man, now I wanna eat them again!
