Everyday Occasions

Give store-bought cinnamon doughnuts an impressive twist with delicious homemade marshmallow icing.

DIY doughnuts


  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup (250ml) castor sugar
  • 2 tsp (10ml) liquid glucose
  • ⅓ cup (80ml) cold water
  • ½ tsp (3ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (500ml) mmmMallows Vanilla Custard
  • 8-10 store-bought cinnamon doughnuts
  • Sprinkles, for decorating


  1. Place egg whites, sugar, glucose and water in a glass bowl and whisk for 1-2 minutes or until sugar has dissolved and mixture has thickened.
  2. Place the bowl over a pot of boiling water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bowl. Whisk constantly until stiff and glossy.
  3. Stir in vanilla extract and mmmMallows, whisking until melted and marshmallow icing is smooth and glossy, about 2 minutes. Remove from the stove.
  4. Glaze doughnuts immediately (and carefully) by spooning the icing gently over them.
  5. Coat with colourful sprinkles and serve.

Cook’s note: Mix things up! We’ve used mmmMallows Vanilla Custard for the marshmallow icing, but you could substitute them with your favourite flavour mmmMallows.
