Isn’t there something about foods that are either mini or rainbow-fied that instantly makes them all the more adorable/tasty/appealing? If you answered yes to this question, then today is your day. Imagine a world that is full of both mini {and} rainbow-colored foods. What about a world full of gluten, egg, and dairy-free rainbow donuts! Kids would eat everything on their plate; Adults would scream with glee! It would be sheer mini-colored bliss…

Gluten, egg, and dairy-free Rainbow Donuts

Maybe this is why I have been giggling all morning. Mini donuts that are also in rainbow formation? {giggling} Can they get any cuter? The perfectly bright and colorful food to kickstart my 2 weeks celebration into St. Patrick’s Day {The rainbow is loud and proud!}

Besides, they are donuts…which, I mean, do they really need any other selling point than that? I didn’t think so either. THEY’RE DONUTS!
