Funfetti Cake Mix Donuts and Mug

Hello! It’s Vanessa of See Vanessa Craft, back with one of my favorite treat recipes for you. June 2nd is National Donut Day and we’re celebrating with our freshly painted “I Donut Care” mug with a side of Funfetti donuts. These donuts might look like a lot of work, but they are super easy to make. You’ll be using Funfetti cake mix or any favorite box of cake mix. Instead of making a big mess with frying, we’ll be sticking them in the oven to bake and using a can of ready made icing as our glaze. I’m all about simple kitchen hacks that save time. Happy Donut Day!


1 box Funfetti cake mix
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
cooking spray
vanilla icing

You’ll also need: whisk, donut sheet, piping bag, rainbow sprinkles, parchment paper


Step 1: Head to As You Wish to paint a “Donut Care” mug.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a donut sheet with cooking spray. Combine the Funfetti cake mix, large egg, vegetable oil and water. Whisk until smooth.

Step 3: Place combined ingredients in a piping bag. Cut the tip off and pipe the ingredients into a donut sheet, filling each slot halfway full.

Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cake mix is cooked all the way through. Allow to cool before removing from baking sheet.

Step 5: Place vanilla icing in a microwavable bowl and microwave in 10 second increments, mixing in between, until icing is melted. Dip the top of each donut into the icing and place on a piece of parchment paper.

Step 6: Before the icing hardens, add sprinkles.

Step 7: Enjoy with a “Donut Care” mug of coffee or hot cocoa!
