Garnish with a 7-11 taquito and some cilantro! Serve it up!


  • Try using 7-11 taquitos as your layers, few are used and they bring so much added flavor.
  • Do not over do it on the icing. Could overwhelm the entire cake.
  • Try it using steak or beef flavors!

My son had a birthday party at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (yes, many of them do birthday parties!), and they made a doughnut cake very much like this. I think it was about 4 doughnuts high, 6 doughnuts wide and about 8 across, filled in with creme filling. Sugar. Coma. And yet, delicious.

My husband isn't a fan of sweets and has always said that anything meat is his here we go!

Genius idea! Will definitely be giving this a go in the near future.

Love it <3

This is fantastic. Someone needed to class up the 7-11 taquito, and you've made an admirable attempt.

Love my 7-11 taquitos...always a classy option ha!

Wow, I can say without hesitation and 100% honesty that this is unlike any cake I have seen before. Now I kind of want someone to make a cake that looks like this cake, but is actually make out of dessert. Maybe a cannoli cake? hmmm, I'm getting ideas!

Thanks so much!!! Let me know if you transform it!
