Friday Faves: Mmmm.. Donuts!

22 Jun

Please pardon the Homer Simpson impression!  What is it about those little round, doughy rings?  Frosted or glazed, we love them all.  Here are a few artists who’ve captured the spirit of our passion for these sweet treats.

I’m drooling now, how about you?  Think I’ll try to talk the hubby into a visit to the Donut House this weekend.  I don’t think it will take much arm-twisting. 😉  Happy weekend, Artsies!

Friday Faves: Are You a Sweet Genius?

6 Apr

Tell me ya’ll have at least seen the commercials for Food Network’s Sweet Genius show.  If you haven’t, you are missing out on some unintentional hilarity!  Hubby and I can’t help but imitate host Ron Ben-Israel each time he utters the show’s tagline, “Are YOU a sweet genius?” in a heavily accented voice.  With shows like Sweet Genius, Cupcake Wars and Cake Boss, there seems to be a quest for confection these days.  How about a few sweet artistic treats to kick off your weekend?  Enjoy!
