Easy Fancy Doughnut Recipe

Do I have a fun and SUPER easy recipe for some delicious fancy donuts!  Everyone will think you purchased these beauties at a fancy cake shop or slaved away for hours!Doughnut recipe so easy anyone can make them!


Servings: Makes 12 donuts


  • 12 store bought plain cake donuts
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Matcha powder
  • Edible petals/flowers (violas, lilac, blueberry, carnation, nasturtium, marigold, bachelor button, chive)*
  • White sugar pearls
  • Sprinkles
  • Chocolate dipped pretzels
  • Edible Gold (if you want to be super fancy)


Make the glaze:

  1. Add the powdered sugar to a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk in the milk and extract until smooth.
  3. Divide the glaze between 3 bowls. Leave 1/3 of the glaze white.
  4. Mix in just enough Matcha powder to the second bowl to make a pale green glaze.
  5. Mix in enough Matcha powder to the third bowl to make a darker green glaze.
  6. Cover the pale green and dark green glazes with plastic wrap (pushing against the glaze to keep from crusting over).

Dip and decorate the donuts:

  1. Working with one color of glaze at a time (white first) dip 4 of the donuts into the glaze and rest on a drying rack.
  2. Working while the glaze is still wet, decorate each donut with the flowers*, sprinkles, chocolate dipped pretzels, and edible gold.
  3. Repeat the process with the remaining two colors of glaze.

*Go sparingly on the edible flowers…a little flower petal goes a long way!
