Pumpkin Spice Mini Cake Donuts

The truth is a lot of us worked really hard to get into our bikini bodies. Months of diet, exercise, and staring longingly at cakes through windows gave us the confidence to step into the sun and sand with confidence. Now, with fall coming, we know those bodies are slowly going to slip back into their winter weight. But not yet! These Pumpkin Spice Mini Cake Donuts have all the looks of something that should be forbidden by our dietician friends, but they’re baked. Let me repeat…BAKED. A’yup! So enjoy these guilt-free my beach body babes. We’ve got you covered (or uncovered, so to speak). Enjoy!
