Quickest, easiest, ugly but good birthday cake that kids will love.

In honor of my son's birthday that we had yesterday, I'd like to share this little idea I had about 2 years ago.

Not everyone likes cake! WHAT? WHAT'S YOU TALKEN 'BOUT WILLIS? I know, I know, I'm going to get hate mail for that one, but its true. Not everyone likes cake. Sometimes its the icing, sometimes its the mess that needs cleaned after a crazy birthday party.

Whether you like cake or not, next year try this idea and see how it goes over. Pick up 2 bags of those little donuts. You know, the one's you can eat a dozen or so and still be hungry. In our house, we pick up one bag of chocolate and one bag of powdered. Stack them in the shape of a cake with however you want to layer your varieties. If you're having a birthday, the little candles will fit nicely in the donut centers.

We like this cake for a couple of reasons. Its good. Its quick. Its easy to clean up. The kids can get as many as they want, by themselves without making an icing mess. Plus, its good. Oh, wait, I said that already.


  1. I never thought as that before. I think my wife could manage to prepare that all by herself :) I wonder how that doughnut cake stacks up nutritionally to a regular chocolate cake????

  2. That's a good question, I'll have to look into it.
