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.
