Double Glazed Funfetti Donuts

Double Glazed Funfetti Donuts | Cookies and Cups

I am really sorry to do this to you.

Because, you know, we’re like friends.
I mean, at least I think of you as my friends…
BUT I imagine if we were REALLY friends I wouldn’t do to you what I am about to do.
I am going to give you, in advance, a weight problem.
If you have never struggled with your weight, God bless ya, but that is about to change.
There are no exercises to help you here.
No amount of running.
No solution to what is going to unfold in your life in the next minute.
It’s really mean, I suppose.
But since we are friends, I must share.
Because that’s what friends do.
We share.
There’s no turning back.
I am going to share with you a recipe for donuts.
In your kitchen.
With no frying involved.
Only a remarkable pan and some cake mix.
It’s really happening, folks.
Last week I attended a really great Blogger Workshop hosted my the incredible people at Wilton.
We frosted, we fondanted, we decorated, we toured…
and we shopped.
The Wilton tent sale is amazing…rows and rows of products all marked down 50%.
That is where I gained possession of the donut pan.
I am scared of its power.
A food that would once be deemed “highly unlikely” to be procured from my kitchen is now going to be a staple.
I might as well get a conveyer belt and a sign that says “Hot Donuts Now”.
You’d come over, right?
Well, now you won’t have to.
You can have hot donuts in 10 minutes.
I wish I were lying.
 Lord help the holes on my belt…they are about to be tested.
Don’t say you weren’t warned, friend.
Get your cake mix ready..

I used a ziplock for easy filling…

Cut of the corner of the ziplock and squeeze batter into each donut mold, filling 2/3 full.

Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and spring back when touched.


Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes and then turn pan upside down to remove.

Then glaze them up!

 I just dropped each donut into the saucepan and quickly coated, transferring onto a cooling rack with parchment or a silicon mat under to catch the glaze drippings.

Then frost them again.  I know.

Stir both ingredients together until smooth.

Spread approx 1 tsp of frosting on top of each donut and immediately coat with sprinkles.

Voila!  Easy, yummy and did I mention DOUBLE glazed?

Now back to the pan.
You need one of these in your life.
It even came with recipes…here’s the one I adapted…

Your waist might regret it, but your tummy will be happy 🙂



Double Glazed Funfetti Donuts



  • 2 3/4 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter


  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

White Frosting

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • *sprinkles if desired



  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Spray the donut pan lightly with cooking spray.
  3. In mixing bowl beat all ingredients on medium speed for 30 seconds.
  4. Transfer batter in a ziplock bag.
  5. Cut of the corner of the ziplock and squeeze batter into each donut mold, filling 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and spring back when touched.
  7. Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes and then turn pan upside down to remove.


  1. In medium saucepan combine ingredients with a whisk over low heat.
  2. Stir until glaze is smooth.
  3. Now coat your donuts with the glaze while burner is still on low. If the glaze gets too hot remove from heat.
  4. You don’t want it to burn, you just want it to stay warm and thin.
  5. I just dropped each donut into the saucepan and quickly coated, transferring onto a cooling rack with parchment or a silicon mat under to catch the glaze drippings.
  6. Let the glaze set…about 15 minutes.

White Frosting

  1. Stir both ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Spread approx 1 tsp of frosting on top of each donut and immediately coat with sprinkles.

Helpful tip… Out of buttermilk?

I poked into favorite thrift store, trying to avoid the toy isle with my kids and found not only a donut pan, but a mini donut pan to go with it for $1.99 each.

Ohhhh I need this pan in my life before my baby is born so I can get fater now. I am not a donut eater, but I will eat from this cake mix recipe.


Dude. Are you kidding me right now? Did you seriously put a box of
Funfetti cake mix in that donut pan?

My life will never be the same.

I'm not sure if I should thank you or punch you?




You know, I've been searching long and hard for a recipe to make for father's day dessert. And now here you are getting it right in one shot!

Well, I guess I'm off on a quest to buy this pan now.
Golly gee, thanks for undermining my attempt to start eating healthier. (It easier if I can blame it on somebody else.)


I want I want I want.

The glaze looks amazing!!

Leah Rubin

Diet, hell! I'm getting a pan tomorrow, and when my grandson (4 1/2) is here in a couple of weeks, we're makin' your donuts! We gotta splurge now and then! Love your stuff!

Georgia Pellegrini

I didn't know there was such a thing as donut pans! I'm always learning things from you girl…

10 minutes? That's incredible! I never thought donuts would be a "common bake" in my house but looks like that's about to change. I can't believe there's no messy frying etc. These look just delicious. I am ignoring your statement about their potential to make me gain weight haha – I don't care – I have to have one of these pans!


I just got a mini donut pan! We tried the recipe that came with it (not Wilton, don't worry) and it was horrid. Now I can't wait to try this one because seriously, can anything Funfetti be bad???

Vimitha Anand

Perfectly baked and glazed donuts… Looks delicious…

Well, I didn't think I ever needed a donut pan….until NOW. Oh my goodness.

Pinned, stumbled, tweeted…and whatever else….these are fabulous, Shelly.


Now you had way to much fun with these beauties!! Such a great idea for a kids party 🙂


Added this to my Funfetti recipes round up!

Rosie @ Sweetapolita

I just love these so much! I just know my little girlies would have so much fun making these and, of course, eating them. Really so fun!


Yum! I didn't realize Wilton did a donut pan too – thought I had to order from somewhere else.

I bet working with Wilton was great – my very first job was in their retail store! (many, many moons ago:)

Thanks for the weight, I mean recipe!!


Oooooooooh!!! It's the part of the cake I love, the crispy edges…did they have icing tips…I shouldn't even ask, but I have to know, you have me craving sweets in the am, lol!


I'm a brand new follower (as of yesterday) but already I think I love you. Seriously. I'm not weird. You just totally get me in a way my husband never has. haha…no really. I wish my computer had a scratch and sniff button. I'm going to buy a new pan today. Can you guess which one? I should probably pick up a new pair of jeans the next size up while I'm out. Keep up the yummy work – you rock!


Thank you for posting this! I bought one of those pans several weeks ago and have been having trouble finding a non-frying recipe. My kids will love this!

Oh. My. Double glazed *and* funfetti all in the same doughnut? Brilliant! Sign me up! Gives me another reason to use my doughnut pan.


Gah, I went to the Wilton tent sale last weekend too and I was so tempted to get the doughnut pan. Now I'm really kicking myself in the butt for not getting it. NEXT WEEKEND!! 😀
