Pink Lemonade Donuts

Turn that cake mix into fun donuts! Use Pink Lemonade cake and frosting to make this totally PINK TREAT for the kiddos!

Every girl LOVES pink food!

And, every girl loves donuts!

And… every mom loves quick and easy treats for their daughters who love pink donuts!

It’s a total win-win situation here!

These are “cheater” donuts again. I used a cake mix to make them.  Last time I made “cheater” donuts I used a muffin mix. What’s the difference anyway? My taste buds weren’t complaining.

I think it’s a great alternative especially if you don’t have the time to make donuts from scratch.

My daughter loved these donuts. She shared them with her friends and they all thought I was a complete and total genius. I mean, they already knew I was, so it was just another normal day here in my house of {Awesomeness}!

I know that if you pick your favorite cake and may your kids some cake donuts, you may never make cupcakes again.

Ok, you will make cupcakes again, but you’ll be thinking that the donuts are easier.
