MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 9, 2010

These are very good and simple to make. Tastes like donuts if you let them sit for a day. I made them for a wedding and they went so fast. I make them every year for Christmas. I do not sprinkle them with almonds.

I absolutely loved these mini cakes! They were like mini glazed donuts. I am already thinking of varieties other than citrus. These are remarkably a favorite!
