Let’s dive into the steps to create this adorable cat donut.


  • Pre-made donuts (or your favorite homemade donut recipe)
  • Black icing or chocolate ganache for the coating
  • Green fondant or icing for the eyes
  • Chocolate or black icing for the facial details


  • Rolling pin (if using fondant)
  • Small circle cutters or piping tips for the eyes (if using fondant)
  • Piping bags and fine tips for detailing
  • Small offset spatula or butter knife


  1. Prepare Your Donuts:
    • If you’re making donuts from scratch, follow your chosen recipe and allow them to cool after frying. For pre-made donuts, ensure they’re at room temperature.
  2. Coat the Donuts:
    • Spread a layer of black icing or chocolate ganache over the top of each donut, using an offset spatula to smooth it out. You want a nice, even layer to resemble the fur of a black cat.
  3. Create the Eyes:
    • For fondant eyes, roll out green fondant and cut out two circles for each donut. Place a small dot of black icing in the center of each green circle for the pupils.
    • If using icing, pipe large green dots and then smaller black dots in the center onto the donut where the eyes should go.
  4. Add the Whiskers and Mouth:
    • Use chocolate or black icing to pipe on the whiskers and mouth. Be as creative as you like with the expression.
  5. Assemble the Donut:
    • Once the icing or ganache has set, carefully place the fondant eyes onto the donut.
    • Add the piped-on facial details, ensuring they’re symmetrical and give your cat character.

Baker’s Tips:

  • If you’re using ganache and want a glossy finish, consider using a blow dryer on low heat for a few seconds to give it a shine.
  • When working with fondant, knead it with a touch of powdered sugar if it’s too sticky.
  • Practice piping the facial details on parchment before moving onto the donut to get the feel of it.

Conclusion: There you have it, a black cat-themed donut that is as delicious to eat as it is cute to look at. This treat is sure to be the highlight of any gathering or just a creative way to start your morning. So, don your apron, and let’s get baking these charming cat donuts!
