A Pretty Pink Doughnut Layer Cake
I love an unconventional and impressive dessert for entertaining, but that doesn't mean it has to be difficult or expensive to make. When I made this doughnut cake for my daughter's birthday yesterday, and it was so easy. I literally made it right after dinner, between party games and present-opening time.
I started with plain glazed yeast doughnuts, though you can use whichever size and flavor you like. For a pink-themed party however, I suggest either the plain glazed or white powdered doughnuts to go with the pink frosting. I used white pearl candy sprinkles, but feel free to use any kind. You could even add on fresh fruit or garnish with chocolates and drizzled with chocolate syrup instead of the pink frosting for a decadent doughnut cake.
It was the perfect easy cake for the birthday party, but I can also see this at a brunch or bridal shower. Start with a beautiful cake stand for a beautiful presentation. There really isn't much to it. Simply stack the doughnuts into a pyramid tower with more at the bottom and fewer at the top, spreading a single layer of frosting on the top of each doughnut, frosting it layer by layer. Then top with sprinkles and anything else you want to garnish it with. For an elegant brunch, try jelly-filled doughnuts and garnish with powdered sugar and fresh fruit. If you need to use a lot of candles, I suggest you go with a single number-shaped candle - anymore than 5 or 6 individual candles, and it will start to look cluttered. You can make it a few days in advance and keep it at room temperature if you have a cake saver or cake dome with stand, though like I said before, it's such a quick and easy cake, that you can make it literally minutes before serving.
