Nest of Doughnuts

Round like a circle in a spiral like a wheel within a wheel
  [vote for,

Just as Dusty says, a doughnut inside a doughnut. Okay after about three doughnuts the outer doughnut is going to be quite big but I think I can handle it, I'm quite peckish.

Like a donut within a donut within a donut... http://www.utopiaba...es/cinnemonroll.jpg

       russian dollnuts mmm
po, Jul 28 2003

       Oh, I see, like this? (link)
k_sra, Jul 28 2003

       [bz] As usual this idea didn't make much sense until your addition. I was thinking a donut in another donut's donut hole. But with the triple-dipped triple-fried donut the potential size is without limit.
Worldgineer, Jul 28 2003

       Well, I'm not sure that what I sketched is what [nichpo] intended.
bristolz, Jul 28 2003

       was that one of dusty's anyway? suppose if nichpo says so, I believe him/her   

       I have been meaning to ask for ages - does nichpo mean not po?
po, Jul 28 2003

       Perhaps [np]'s your evil twin.
Worldgineer, Jul 28 2003

       or my better half.
po, Jul 28 2003

       Mmmmmmm, dooooooooughnuts... (in my best homer simpson voice)
Mamamoose, Jul 28 2003

       [worldengineer] that is an Iced Danish Pastry as well you know!
gnomethang, Jul 28 2003

       In the US we call them cinnamon rolls. My point is that this is what [np] is describing exactly. Unless it's [bz]'s concept, which doesn't quite fit the "Round like a circle in a spiral like a wheel within a wheel" part.
Worldgineer, Jul 28 2003

       [wg] I love the ones with cinnamon.
I think that the original idea is like this:
Take a small ring doughnut.
Add a new doughnut so that the original doughnut is inserted in the new doughnut hole.
Repeat if necessary.
Bristolz has a very good take on the idea that involves some jam/layer/scaling mathematics.
I am thinking about one more that is an impossible figure but I am withholding that until I get the picture straight!
gnomethang, Jul 28 2003

       I thought for a moment I was someone's evil twin (I can neither confirm or deny). you could even make a rope of rings inside rings. if people were really hungry. or there were lots of you.
neilp, Jul 28 2003

       Sorry, I meant [nichpo]. Though let me know if I stumbled onto something.
Worldgineer, Jul 28 2003

       Actually I'm my own evil twin (was tripplets for a while but we had to 'erase' nichpo#3). And I don't believe I'm a relative of [po] though I do vaguely remember a drunken party in Teletubby land many moons ago; so anythings possible.
nichpo, Jul 29 2003

       Oh and thanks [bristolz] that was totally what I wasn't thinking about but much better.

angel, Jul 29 2003

       Thanks, angel. I can *never* remember the rest of the words to that song.
thumbwax, Jul 29 2003

       Um Ms Springfield did a good rendition though. And just to say my original idea differs from the danish/cinnamon roll idea because you can order up whichever combinations you want i.e. a custurd one surrounded by a lemon icing one, embraced by a chocolate one. ummm
nichpo, Jul 29 2003

       Why didn't you say so in the first place? You've now earned a fluffy baked treat. Please provide construction details.
Worldgineer, Jul 29 2003

       Totally? That it is round, did I get that part right?
bristolz, Jul 29 2003

       SNOW TIRES!!!   

       Tim Hortons used to make a huge donut called a "Snow Tire", one of my favourites. Stopped making them about 20 years ago, but the nest would be a great replacement!
scarkner, Jul 29 2003

       You remember Tim Hortons from twenty years ago? You lucky canuck you!
k_sra, Jul 29 2003

       [Worldgineer] You are right I should have explained this a bit better in the beginning, it's just the windmills of my mind always start spinning when I think of that song. [bristolz] Sorry, I was using the word 'Totally' in its lesser known sense of 'Partially'. I did like your idea better though.
