Donut Glaze/Icing:

  • 1/4 cup Simple Mills Chocolate Frosting + 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Simple Mills Vanilla Frosting + 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup edible dried rose petals
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray donut pans with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together eggs, water, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Add vanilla cake mix and stir until no lumps remain. Spoon cake batter into donut pan until each cavity is a little over 3/4 full. Place donuts in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch. Move donuts to a wire rack to cool completely (about 15-30 minutes).
  • Once donuts are cool, prep the chocolate and vanilla icing by placing each in separate shallow microwave-safe bowls. Microwave each for 15 seconds, stir and add melted coconut oil. At this point the icing should be thin enough to drizzle and you can start dipping the donuts.
  • Dip the rounded side (essentially the bottom) of each donut into the icing so that it coats the donut halfway. Place iced donuts on parchment paper or a wire rack. Once all donuts have icing, sprinkle edible rose petals and chopped dark chocolate on top. Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to enjoy!
