Red Velvet Cake Donuts

So I love making donuts in my donut pan!  I especially love cake donuts and these are right up my alley.  My kids loved this sweet breakfast on Sunday.  It's a fun way to sweeten up your sweethearts.  The batter is super thick.  Like really, really thick.  I was surprised how thick it was.  I had to get in there with my hands to mix it up.  Then I just rolled the batter into long logs and curled them around the donut rings.  So don't be alarmed when the batter is thicker than normal.  These were a hit around here.  The frosting is delish!
