How do you make Mini Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts?
There are only a few simple steps to make these cake mix donuts and you only need a few ingredients you may already have in your pantry.
- Mix together cake mix, oil, water, and eggs until well combined.
- Transfer mixture to a cake decorating bag with a cake decorating tip. You can also use a large gallon size bag with the corner slightly cut.
- Squeeze the batter into the baking pan filling each donut hole ⅔ full.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges barely start to brown. I would start to check around 10 minutes as every oven is slightly different.
- Heat icing in microwave until melted and can be easily stirred with spoon. Color icing with your favorite food coloring icing if desired.
- Allow your donuts to cool slightly in the mini cupcake pan before removing carefully.
Tip: When adding your batter to a cake decorating bag I like to put the bag in a cup and fold the edge of the bag over the sides of the cup. Fill with batter. Pull bag out of cup for a mess free decorating bag.
Allow your donuts to cool slightly in the mini cupcake pan before removing carefully. While your donuts are cooling, microwave your vanilla icing until it can be easily stirred. Divide and add your favorite food coloring if desired. Carefully dip the tops of the cake mix donuts into the warmed icing. Add rainbow sprinkles to warm iced donuts and set aside until cool and icing set
Serve these little donuts with tall glasses of milk and a colorful straw for a special after school treat the kids will love!
