    Easy Donut Cake

    I can’t believe my sweet Ani turned 5 yesterday. Everyone tells you that your kiddos will grow up in a blink of an eye and it couldn’t be truer. I blinked. A lot.

    We’ve been having so much fun celebrating Ani the past few days because birthdays should never be limited to just 24 hours. Saturday morning, Ani had a pajama party with her friends to celebrate her birthday and love for a sprinkle donut. The girl lives for them.

    The Best Donut Birthday Cake

    She wanted a donut cake, but with the bustle of the holidays and her birthday shortly after Christmas, I completely forgot to order one. So, I pulled out my bundt pan and made her a donut cake. Actually, we all did!

    Quick and Simple Cake Mix Donut Cake

    For the sake of my sanity and in the midst of exhaustion, I picked up a couple of cake mixes and icing. Shameful, I know, but what’s a mom to do with Christmas and 3 birthdays in a month?

    If you prefer to make your own icing, I highly recommend this Buttercream Icing Recipe.

    The most beautiful part was the ease of icing. I took several cake-decorating classes growing up, but none of them really stuck. My mom always decorated a beautiful cake, however, I have yet to master it. So once again, I cheated.

    Ani and Isla added water and oil, Adalyn cracked the eggs and I licked the spatula. That’s how cake making works, right?

    How to make a donut cake:

    • Make your favorite cake recipe or mix.
    • Grease a bundt pan. {tips for a beautiful bundt}
    • Bake.
    • Allow to cool 10 minutes.
    • Flip cake onto a wire rack, give a pan a few taps to help it release.
    • Once it is completely cool, slice the bottom of the cake off where it had risen to make it even.
    • Place the cake on my cake stand.

    How to ice a donut cake:

    To make a cake look like a donut, ice it like one, by pouring the icing over the top of the cake.

    • Melt icing for 40 seconds.
    • Stir and pour icing over the cake in one continuous circle to ensure it spreads evenly {with the cake stand in the sink to compensate for runoff}
    • Add sprinkles.
