    They look so very tasty! In Germany we know them as Berliner, Krapfen or Pfannkuchen, mainly in the Raspberry configuration ^^
    Your donut cutter has two little holes on the top, I bet you could push them out that way with a scewer or something.
    Just to be THAT guy I would like to make a case for the damp kitchen towel instead of plastic wrap as a cover for proofing dough! And what is so bad about that skin, can’t you just remove it after the fact? ^^
    Four sheets of plastic wrap could have been saved… yes I know its annoying to hear, but that doesn’t make it less true and imagine everyone doing it, that adds up super fast.
