Doughnuts? or Donuts? Which is your preference? Mine is donuts. But regardless your spelling preference these little round babies are delicious. Who doesn’t love a good donut? If you’re in the pro-donut clan, today is your lucky day- it’s National Donut Day! Now, I know you can get a free donut at Krispie Kreme or Dunkin today (I don’t even think we have a Dunkin?) but, if you want to celebrate the holiday correctly, skip the freebies and muster up some patience (because there will be a line) and go get a Blue Star Donut. Or if you’re in the NE Portland area- swing by Pip’s Original Dougnuts. …Notice Blue Star goes with “donut” and Pip’s uses “doughnuts” ha!
My donut photos are from Blue Star. So did I make these donuts? The answer is definitely, no. I don’t see that as cheating because this blog is about food photography, not baking. While I do love sharing recipes, I’m better off talking to you about composition and props than how to create the perfect donut. Speaking of props- a shout out to Beam and Anchor for the beautiful rolling pin that you’ll see and AHeriloom for the cake stand. So this post is simply just for fun. I had the donuts (lemon poppyseed) on hand for a different project and I could not just stand by and not do a mini photo shoot. So this is just some fun donut photos to get awake your taste buds for National Donut Day. Enjoy!
