The Art of Donut has been one of my go-to spots to work in the morning. Located at the North St. Mary’s and Mulberry intersection near the zoo, Andrea Aguirre along with husband Miguel have opened a gourmet donut shop along with an awesome coffee bar. It is a treat to walk into this inviting business with beautiful treats and a “Donut Kill My Vibe” neon sign and get one of their specialty donuts. I am really proud to help produce The Art of Donut Fiesta Medal for 2018!
After working out of the shop for a couple of months, I talked with Andrea about creating a festive medal and had the perfect candidate: her colorful Rainbow Fest donut. It has bright pink vanilla flavored icing topped with a handful of Fruity Pebbles.
We both realized how similar the Fruity Pebbles are to the confetti from a cascaron and decided to go with that theme on The Art of Donut Fiesta Medal. You’ll notice a couple of cracked cascarones with “2018” above raining down confetti on the donut. And of course we had to have a hole in the middle!
The medal sells for $10 plus tax and all proceeds of The Art of Donut Fiesta Medal goes to benefit Alamo City Pit Bull Rescue and Rehabilitation, a charity near and dear to Andrea’s heart.
“I have volunteered with both Alamo City Pit Bull and San Antonio Pets Alive! and have a special place in my heart for dogs,” Andrea told me. “In particular, pit bulls are the first on the ‘kill-list’ at shelters and this organization helps find them a home. I want to be the voice for those that don’t have one.”
