Pink Lemonade Donuts

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.

Ingredients (serves 12)
  • 1 box Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Cake +ingredients on box
  • 1 container Pillsbury Pink Lemonade Frosting
  • Sprinkles
  • McCormick Neon Pink Food Color if desired
Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Lightly spray donut pan with PAM and add batter to the pan. *Tip – place 1/4 of the batter in a quart size baggie and squeeze it into the pan.
Bake for 10 – 15 minutes and cool on a wire wrack.
Once donuts are cooled, place half the container of frosting into a microwave safe bowl and melt at 70% power for 30 seconds. Stir and heat again if necessary.

For the dark pink stripes, I used McCormick Neon Pink Food Color to darken the melted frosting, then I decorated the donut.
