Happy Canada Day Donuts

Just a quick post after a day of Canada Day festivities. I had a lot of fun in the sun with the kids today, and it was great to just hang out on various porches up and down the street. I made these maple leaf shaped donuts to serve to all who stopped by, and to take when we visited other people. I used this recipe I posted before, and then made this glaze with soy milk and some red dye. I used a maple leaf shaped cookie cutter, then punched a hole in the centre. I am not sure if that was necessary, but I thought it would make them cook more evenly. The shape morphed a bit during rising and cooking, but it still looks pretty good.
Speaking of feeding the neighbourhood vegan goodies, I made these cupcakes for a recent block party.

Those are cute! I have never been a big doughnut person, but after seeing the few doughnut recipes you have posted I really want to try making my own.

Hi, Nate. So you use red dye AND chocolate to make the glaze?

veganola,
No, the link is to a vanilla glaze that I added food colouring to.

Oh duh, thanks. I must've clicked your original link from when you first posted the recipe. Thanks for clearing that up. :)

These are BEAUTIFUL, I can't believe what a vivid red you achieved. Also, the hole in the middle is charming, and they are still distinctly maple-y.
