My roommate loves doughnuts, so I decided to make her the biggest one she had ever had. They sell doughnut cake molds, but I was on a budget and didn't know when I'd ever make another one, so I opted to make my own mold and here's the result!

I ended up making a two layer cake, but you can make a slightly smaller, single layer cake.

Step 1: Tools and Ingredients

Electric Mixer
Large Mixing Bowl
Small Mixing Bowl
2 Medium Sauce Pans
2 Sheet Pans
Mixing Spoons
Extra wide heavy duty Aluminum Fool
Cooking Spray (Very Necessary)
Bread knife
Perforated cooling rack
Pajama Pants (Or whatever works. I'll explain in the next step.)

2 boxes chocolate cake mix (Can be made with 1 if you want a slightly smaller, single layer doughnut cake)
The ingredients for 2(or 1) boxes of cake mix (oil, water, eggs, etc . . .)

1/4 cup milk (I used skim because it was all I had, but you're supposed to use Whole. The choice is yours)
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (Optional)

Chocolate Frosting
1 lb confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract

Colored Sprinkles!!! (Missing from photo)
not colorful...<br>maybe you can change to pink or yellow or some bright color <br>for brithday is really happy <br>brighter color is better i think
I like the idea, but have to say I would go with a vacuum table and multiple layers of foil to make the pan. Multiple layers of foil under a thin piece of plastic - possibly may have to do it several time depending if individual layers rip while forming the shape.<br><br>But that is me - I see from past posts I have turned into a vacuum freak. Lol
Interesting. I would probably use a bundt cake mold.
I think this is what Randofo will be requesting for his next birthday cake!
