The thought of food on the couch might make some folks cringe, but these pillows just look tasty. They won’t leave any crumbs or stains behind.

At 16 inches in diameter, these Donut throw pillows are a snack and a half! They’re the perfect size for snuggling and lounging. What’s even cooler about these microbead-filled confections is that they’re two-sided, so you get two yummy-looking pastry pillows for the price of one.
