Cinnamon sugar is an old fashioned donut topping. Cinnamon sugar topping adds a hint of cinnamon flavor, and a sweet sugary finish. The sugar also adds a crumbly texture to the donut.

After your donut has cooled down a little, dip it on a plate with cinnamon and sugar.

If the topping is having trouble adhering to the donut, brush the donut with melted butter, and dip it again for a deliciously sweet cinnamon sugar donut topping.

Donut Topping Ideas

Powdered Sugar

Powdered sugar donuts are one of the classic donut toppings.

Powdered sugar dusts all over your hands because it easily falls off the donut!

But it gives the donut a light sweetness, it’s not as sugary as icing or other glazes.

After your donut has cooled down a little, dip it on a plate with powdered sugar.

If it’s having trouble adhering to the donut, at a spritz of vegetable oil to donut, and dip it again for a beautiful white donut topping.

Nuts

Finely chopped nuts can be used as a donut topping, but it needs something to “glue” it to the donut.

Typically the donut is “glazed” with an icing, and then the nuts can be sprinkled on top of the donut.

Nuts add an earthy flavor to the donuts, as well as a crunchy texture to the donut.

  • pistachios
  • walnuts
  • pecans

Try making carrot cake donuts which uses walnuts as a donut topping.

Sprinkles are vibrant and colorful to add on the top of donuts. Sprinkles come in all sorts of colors and shapes, depending on the theme of your cupcakes.

You can use a simple vanilla glaze on your donuts, and then gently add your sprinkles on top of your glaze.

Toasted Coconut

Toasted coconut makes the coconut flavor much more enhanced than just plain coconut flakes.

Always toast your coconut to add the crispy, coconut flakes to the top of your donuts.

Toasted coconut can be put on top of donuts by using a simple coconut glaze.

Coconut glaze is made by adding a little coconut milk to icing sugar.

Bacon

Bacon bits are a unique topping to add to a donut.

You’ll want to get the glaze flavor to match the bacon, therefore I would recommend using a maple glaze.

The maple syrup flavor with the bacon goes well together, so it won’t be weird!!

You can imagine how strange it would be if you had a vanilla glaze with bacon. (gross!)

Lemon Sugar

Lemon sugar is small pieces of butter, zest and granulated sugar mixed together.

It looks kind of like regular granulated sugar, but in small clumps.

Lemon sugar adds a refreshing citrus sugar flavor to the donuts.

Freeze dried raspberries look beautiful on top of donuts as a topping.

Crushed candy canes work well on top of a white colored glaze. You can use a vanilla glaze, but a peppermint glaze would be the most fitting for this donut topping.

The pop of red/green of the crushed candy canes looks alluring on the donuts.

Cotton Candy

Cotton candy seems like a strange topping for donuts. But it’s actually one of the tastiest toppings you can add to your donuts!

Take a piece of cotton candy, and wrap it around the donut, and then take a bite while the donut is still warm. It’s mesmerizing!!

You can also add a couple of edible gold flakes on top of the cotton candy for a shimmer on the cotton candy.

Raspberry and white chocolate mousse work well together.

As well, dark chocolate mousse, and white chocolate mousse taste decadent together.

Another option is to make 1 type of mousse, then add a layer of whipped cream on top.

Or, you can place one layer of mousse, then add a layer of berry sauce, caramel sauce, or chocolate sauce. Add another layer of mousse to create a beautiful layered dessert.

Each trifle is slightly different, and can have more layers like fresh fruit and a fruit sauce.

Trifle is a classic dessert that is always served in a clear glass to be able to see all of the colorful layers of the dessert.

No Bake Cheesecake

No bake cheesecake uses whipped cream mixed with cream cheese to create the cheesecake flavor this layered dessert.

The bottom layer of the glass is crushed cookies. The middle layer is the whipped cream cheesecake.

Creme brulee typically only has 2 layers to it. But you can add more toppings to the dessert to add more layers in the glass.

Creme brulee needs to be placed in a heat proof glass, so make sure you’re using the appropriate glassware prior to baking.

The first layer of creme brulee is the custard. You can make a ton of different flavors of creme brulee custard including:

6 Macaron Toppings

Macarons can be taken to the next level by adding a few beautiful toppings.

Some toppings can be added right after piping the macaron batter. Some macaron toppings won’t do well in the oven, therefore they need to added after the macarons have baked.

Keep this mind when selecting toppings for your macarons.

Caramel Sauce

To add caramel or chocolate drizzle, place your macarons on a large plate.

Put the caramel into a piping bag with a narrow circular tip.

The caramel sauce will come out very quickly. You won’t even need to squish the bag for the flow to come out.

Make one line on 1 half of the macaron. Continue making 2 more lines that criss cross a little to have an elastic band look to it.

Macaron Toppings

Melted Chocolate

Melt a small amount of chocolate (1/4 cup or less). You don’t need much at all to add chocolate as a macaron topping.

Place the melted chocolate into a piping bag with a narrow circular tip. You’re going to need to work quickly if you’re using a piping bag.

Another option is to dip a spoon into the chocolate, and use the edge of the spoon to place the chocolate onto the macaron.

Melted chocolate works well as a macaron topping, because you can use it to add sprinkles or nuts to the tops of your macarons.

Let the melted chocolate dry for 30 minutes prior to storing the macarons away.

Macaron Toppings

Nuts

Finely chopped nuts can be used as a macaron topping, but it needs something to “glue” it to the macaron.

You can use caramel sauce, or chocolate. Chocolate will work the best, because it actually dries and doesn’t cause any mess like caramel sauce does.

  • pistachios
  • walnuts
  • pecans

Sprinkles

Macarons can be decorated with sprinkles right after piping the batter and removing the air bubbles.

Since the batter is sticky while it’s awaiting drying, the sprinkles will adhere to the macaron batter.

Only put a few sprinkles on the macaron, and they should be quite small. Large sprinkles have the risk of melting in the oven and ruining the macaron shells.

Another option is to add melted chocolate after your macarons have been baked and filled. Then gently dust your sprinkles on top of the melted chocolate for it to be “glued” to the top of the macaron.

toppings for macarons

Coffee Granules

You can decorate macarons with coffee granules by sprinkling a couple of granules on the macaron as soon as they are done piping and have had the air bubbles removed.

The coffee granules will stick well to the macaron batter as it dries prior to baking.

Cookie Crumbs

To add cookie crumbs to the top of your macarons, sprinkle a dusting of cookie crumbs on the macarons as soon as you are done piping them.

You can also put 1 tbsp of cookie crumbs directly into the dry ingredients when making macaron batter. This will give the macaron shells a hint of flavor cookie flavor.
