Red Velvet Chip Doughnut

Food Art!

When I was in college, in my art class we had to create food art. Food art is when you take a piece of art and emulate the art piece by creating a food dish out of it.

I wanted to make Mexican food, I forgot what artist I chose, but I do remember creating enchiladas for the project. The enchiladas were a hit and I got an A.

Today has been a very long day, baby girl is under the weather so I spent all day making tea, fixing soup and catering to my little princess.

Yes, she is 14 years old, almost 5'8" and can fit all my shoes, but she will always be my baby girl.

To make her feel better, I decided to create some of her favorites doughnuts, red velvet.

This is one of my quick recipes, using box red velvet cake mix. You can make this from scratch but I had no time to run to the store today.

I made my baby girl these art prints to cheer her up. She loves colors and she loves art so I created these for her in all her favorite colors. 

I just set myself up because she wants me to make all these colors for valentine's day, the edible version as she stated, not print.

I love a challenge so stay tuned for my bright velvet doughnuts coming soon. 

Michaels here I come!

  1. Aww, I hope your "little" one feels better soon! These doughnuts look great =) Love the varying colors!

    1. Thanks Peggy, I think she is feeling a lot better she had food request today, smothered ox tails or pasta with prosciutto and asparagus. LOL, I told her I guess your feeling better since you don't want to eat chicken soup. She is so funny, she is definitely not a fast food kid. LOL

  2. Did anyone else notice that the sprinkles on each different color are in the EXACT same spots?

    1. Yes, because all of the doughnuts except the red and white are art prints. I created them for my daughter out of pictures.

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
