Trend Spotting: Go Nuts for Doughnuts

 I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but lately, everyone seems to have a summer sweet tooth. While last year, ice cream cones and popsicles seemed to be the thing, this season it’s all about the deep-fried rings. Dribbble is sprinkled with the pastry, Etsy shops have erupted with the confections, and just check out Nole Garey’s (Oh So Beautiful Paper) recount of the National Paper Show. Doughnuts, donut-holes, and their coffee counterparts are slam “dunkin'” all over just about every booth. Even doughnut parties have become a growing trend. So go out an embrace the sugary snack this summer…and maybe indulge in one yourself this mid-week morning…swim suit season won’t mind just one. ;)

    Now that you mention it, I have noticed donuts being everywhere! I just saw a tutorial yesterday about how to make a donut pillow. I really wish I liked them; they look delicious!

    I love the idea of looking at trendiest dessert in design! You’re spot on about the ice cream cones and popsicles last year (and maybe cupcakes before that?), and based on this graphic of yours I’m pretty excited to see donuts take off! :)

      So true, I was thinking cupcakes too! Those babies still pop up every now and again. And I don’t hate the doughnut craze that’s for sure. ;)
