BAYFOOD COOKS: Since the regular sugar donuts didn’t taste sweet enough, I thought maybe a glaze would work. I looked up a really quick glaze on the internet, so I’m not exactly sure which one I picked. Either way, a really simple sugar glaze is pretty much going to have the same ingredients so you can find one that suits your taste buds easily. The glaze did increase the sweetness of the donuts, but I think for these to have been better it definitely needed more sugar inside the dough. They were still pretty tasty. 

As an experiment, we made a twist too, lol. We also made a couple of them filled with lemon, which was amazing! It’s actually made from lemon curd made from our own lemons, so it was extra homemade. :) 

Overall, while there are several adjustments that need to be made to the recipe, I think this was a success for a first time making donuts! I’m actually thinking about giving it another try sometime soon, now that I have a slight idea of what to do.

tadas maksimovas spins his hair into the playable strings of a violin

london-based artist tadas maksimovas has used his hair as the medium in a performance-cum-instrumental project, which saw his longs locks transformed into the fragile strings of a violin. created for street musician’s day — an annual music event initiated by lithuanian musician and actor andrius mamontovas — the experimental piece demonstrates that even the most ambiguous materials can be transformed into an object of alternative use. twisting and gluing maksimovas’ lengthily strands of hair into tightly spun fibers, the fine threads were then fixed to the wooden violin, positioned along the length of the instrument, and  experimentaled. the result is a musical piece, entirely performed through the cooperation of artist and musician.
