Easy Bakery-Style Doughnut Topping Glaze

Total Time

Just like the glaze you get on doughnuts at the bakeries and doughnut shops! Use food colouring to create different colours, then top with chocolate sprinkles or anything you desire, just make certain to sprinkle with the toppings before the glaze hardens. This will cover about 10-12 doughnuts. Purchase already-baked doughnuts from the bakery and glaze yourself if desired!
