I love you as much as donuts!



Everyone loves donuts right!? They are kinda a hot craze right now. And everyone loves cake too? Right? At least I do. These are 2 of my favorite things to bake. So when one of my good gal pals was turning 30, I had an idea….

I knew I wanted to make a fun cake so I thought why not put donuts on a cake? My friend said her favorite cake was chocolate, so I started with that. I used the baked donut recipe from Designlovefest, changed just a few ingredients, but it turned out amazing. See the revised recipe at the bottom!

I baked about 4 layers out of one recipe and left it more of a “naked cake” feel. I really piled the icing on the top to to hold the donuts! I also used skewers to hold the donuts in place and keep them from moving!
