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
Step 7: Marvel
Add more sprinkles!
Step 8: Slice
Cut and serve.
Step 9: Enjoy
Break out the good Lego silverware.
