When making baked donuts I always like to use buttercream instead of ice cream, as sometimes the glaze soaks through quickly, but here is an amazing glaze recipe if you’d like to try it! If you like buttercream like me here is an incredible buttercream recipe:

Buttercream Ingredients
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter
– 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
– 2 tablespoons milk
– food coloring (optional)
