One of my best girlfriends has a birthday coming up, and we have a mutual passion for donuts — I wouldn’t be exaggerating by saying we exchange at least 2-3 emails a week about donuts. Which is why I thought it was completely acceptable to make a cake, and then add donuts on top of it for her birthday celebration this weekend. Conveniently, I had recently purchase a mini-donut pan, and followed the recipe that came with the pan (from Williams-Sonoma). They were surprisingly simple to make and totally jazzed up my box-mix cake I made for the occasion. So remember: the next time you’re making a three layer chocolate-chocolate cake and you ask yourself “Is this enough?” the answer is no, no it’s not enough, and then add donuts on top of that cake.
This is just unreal. How good were they!?
This is genius–I don’t even like donuts and I want to make this!
I’ve always been too intimidated by making donuts at home, but I might be sold now! This looks incredible!
The only thing better than donuts is donuts on top of a cake- especially with sprinkles on top!
This is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. The rainbow sprinkles on the mini donuts are perfection!
wow, what a lucky friend to get such a special cake 🙂
I am totally picking up one of those mini-donut pans – how brilliant!
I would like to know the recipe for the cake, thank you very much.
