Baking Instructions

  1. Note: Since the Summer Velvets Cake Mix contains two cake mixes, you will need to make them separately.
  2. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup melted butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup of milk and then add 1 beaten egg.
  4. Add in 1 package cake mix and blend until smooth.
  5. Spoon mixture into a piping bag or a zippered plastic bag with the corner cut off.
  6. Repeat instructions with the other cake mix package.
  7. Pipe into greased donut pan (don't overfill!) If making dual colored donuts, make sure they touch in the pan.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan immediately and cool in a rack.
  10. To frost, heat frosting in microwave (feel free to add a little milk or water for different consistencies).
  11. Dip cooled donut tops into the glaze and then dip glazed side down in bowl full of sprinkles.

Uneven heat in oven

If your oven doesn't cook evenly, or part of a burner is broken, put your largest casserole dish on the very bottom rack and fill with water. As you oven heats up, the heat will travel threw the water to your intended product, but now evenly dispersed.



When rollinig out cookie dough for sugar cookies, place rimless cookie sheet in freezer and then roll out dough. Cut out cookies, place back in freezer for a few moments and then remove extra dough with a small metal spatula or knife. No problem transfering cutouts from board to cookie sheet.
