Coolest Eye Cake

I saw these eye cakes in a magazine and thought I should try it. So easy and really fun! Using unglazed donut holes (holds frosting really well) and M&Ms these are great for a Halloween party.

After looking at the grocery stores for weeks I was unable to find unglazed donut holes. So I went to the local donut store and ordered a few dozen holes unglazed. (Check, because I needed to give them a few days notice before I picked them up).

I used a can of white frosting and melted it a little in the microwave. Just a few seconds, you want it workable, not soup. I then dipped each donut in the frosting coating it, and set it on a wire wrack to cool and harden. I immediately (before it cooled) placed an M&M on backward (so the M&M did not show). (TIP: only use eye colors of M&Ms ex: blue, green, brown. Red, yellow, orange does not look as real.) Because red frosting is so hard to make I bought a tube of it, which made it extremely easy to draw on the lines of the eyes.

Place in a bowl and serve! These were a huge hit at my husbands work Halloween party.

  1. I use to make something like this but out of a family cookie recipe but I LOVE your idea so much better! I’m just going to have to try it these this Halloween! Great idea!

  2. Do you mean that you use cake donut holes when you say unglazed? If so, thanks! This looks really neat and easy and kids would love it.
