  • 6 Store bought glazed donuts - you could make your own donuts if you have time.
  • 1 container vanilla frosting not whipped
  • 8 ounces coconut flakes
  • Rainbow sprinkles


  1. Cut each glazed donut in half.  

  2. Remove lid and foil from frosting container. Microwave frosting for 40 seconds.

  3. Pour melted frosting into a shallow bowl.

  4. Dip a half donut into the melted frosting, just covering the top of the donut.

  5. Set on a plate and begin to decorate with rainbow sprinkles in a rainbow form carefully pressing the sprinkles into the wet frosting.

  6. Add a bit of coconut flakes to the ends of the donuts to create "clouds".

    TIP - only do one donut at a time so the sprinkles will stick before the frosting hardens.

  7. Let frosting set before enjoying. Create these ahead of time for parties and keep in sealed container to keep them fresh for your gathering. ENJOY!
