Introduction: Doughnut Cake

We love doughnuts; we love frosting- so it makes sense to combine the two and make a sweet little doughnut cake. But - I admit - we're short on time. You could make your doughnuts from scratch - and/or your frosting from scratch but for this project -it's all about fast.
The 4th of July is around the corner so I used a little food coloring to give it a colorful twist -you could do that or add other colors or none at all; just the frosting of your choice.

Step 1: Gather

3 cake doughnuts
White frosting in can
Red and Blue food coloring gel

Add a little food coloring (remember to use a clean toothpick to go into the food gel so you don't contaminate it) to 2 little bowls of frosting.

Step 2: Slice

Slice the doughnuts (as fresh as you can get them) in half lengthwise.

Step 3: Stack

Practice stacking the doughnut halves with one flat half on the bottom and the other half up on top.

Step 4: Stack Frosted

Add the frosting - I layered it in red, white and blue but you do what ever you like.

Step 5: Frost and Chill

 

 

 

Frost the outside.

Put it in the refrigerator to set up for 15 minutes or so- it was 90 degrees in the kitchen when I made mine so it was pretty goopey.

Step 6: Sprinkles

Add sprinkles.

Step 7: Marvel

Add more sprinkles!

Step 8: Slice

Cut and serve.

Step 9: Enjoy

Break out the good Lego silverware.
