Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You can use any variety of cereal that you would like. 
  • Add a pop of color and add a couple drops of food coloring to the frosting to make them even more fun.
  • You will want to put your frosted donuts on a wire rack with parchment paper underneath it and then add the cereal right away. This allows the frosting to drip down and not make a mess while it sets. 
  • I recommend thinning out your frosting a bit to make it more like an icing rather than a frosting. 
  • You can either sprinkle your donuts with your favorite cereal or you can put cereal in a bowl and dip your donuts in it to get them loaded with cereal goodness.
