Cop Doughnuts

I threw the boyfriend a surprise congratulations-your-a-cop/welcome-home party.  Since he got back from 6 months of training to be a police officer, I gathered our friends who dressed up like cops and surprised him at a restaurant!  I wanted to make cop-themed party favors, and what better than mini doughnuts?  Plus, I attached fake violation tickets!

Check out the verdict at the end of the post!

Baked Vanilla Mini Doughnuts
I’m just going to refer you to this site because I followed the recipe exactly.  Actually, I thinned out the icing with more milk to make it easier to glaze the doughnuts.

To top with sprinkles, dip the doughnuts in the icing and then in a shallow bowl of sprinkles. 
Pipe batter into doughnut molds.
After baking.

Dip doughnut in icing, then in sprinkles.

Verdict: These doughnuts turned out so cute!  They were mini vanilla cakes shaped like doughnuts.  The guests liked them and the boyfriend said “What a delightful little treat!” haha! I’d recommend serving them the day of, as they sweated a bit in the plastic wrapping.  I think people got a kick out of the fake tickets.  I tried to make them funny violations like: a ticket for taking too long to order!


  1. Such a cute idea! I wandered over to your blog somehow, and am really enjoying all the ideas and pictures.
