Easy Pink Pineapple Donuts

I still can’t believe we’re (almost) to summer! You would have thought I would be tired of pineapples by now, but I am still as obsessed as ever! I actually just bought some gold pineapple earrings and a necklace at the J.Crew outlet last week. Love them!

One of my favorite dessert hacks is to buy store-bought items and spruce them up to look like fun statement pieces. You can serve them at parties or whatever you’re up to! ;) I actually made these doughnuts using my new doughnut maker, but you can easily buy store-bought donuts or even go to the bakery and spruce them up. A little frosting, a toothpick, and a cut-out pineapple topper goes a heck of a long way!  ;)

 

How To Make Pink Pineapple Donuts

MATERIALS:

  • Vanilla cake mix
  • Karen’s Cookies royal icing
  • Pink gel food color
  • Donut pan
  • 2 bowls
  • Piping bag
  • Green construction paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Hot glue gun

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Mix your cake mix and pour it into your greased donut pan. Bake and let donuts cool.
  2. Mix your royal icing and separate into two bowls.
  3. In your first bowl, add one drop of your pink gel dye to create a light pink color.
  4. In a separate bowl, add four drops of your pink gel dye for a bright pink shade.
  5. Dip your donuts halfway into the bowl with your light pink icing.
  6. Put your bright pink icing in your piping bag and decorate your donut with a criss-cross pattern like a pineapple!
  7. Use your green construction paper to draw a pineapple stem, then cut it out.
  8. Hot glue your toothpicks to your green pineapple stems, and place them into the top of your donuts.
