Happy Leap Day! (Sort of exciting) I am so excited to share these super EASY St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Donuts with you. Lately I have been on the hunt for ways to simplify- less work, more fun. These rainbow donuts are festive, fun and on trend, actually. You can find speciality donut shops with crazy toppings popping up everywhere. The donuts can be a tad expensive though ($3 each in L.A.). Luckily, you make make a your own at home for a fraction of the cost.
Since it is Rainbow season:), I used Fruity Pebbles for these St. Patrick’s Day donuts but by all means, switch it up! Try crushed Oreos, Lucky Charms, bacon, you name it! The technique is the same.
Depending on how much effort you want to put into these, you can make you own homemade donuts or store bought plain cake donuts. I use store bought. My kids don’t care. They appreciate the fun.
- plain cake donuts
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2-4 Tablespoons milk
- 1 cup topping of your choice (these are Fruity Pebbles)
- With a whisk, mix powdered sugar with 2 TBSP milk. Add more milk as needed until frosting is thick toothpaste consistency.
- DIp in the top half of your donut.
- Then, dip donut in topping.
Could it be easier? I would love to see some of the toppings you coming up with. Tag us on Instagram @bloomdesignsonline. For more St. Patricks Day ideas, check out our Pinterest Board.
