donut tower

It’s Rachel’s birthday today!!!!!! And everyone here at the Chic HQ wants to wish her a big ol’ HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Last year we celebrated with a Banana Cake; this year we got a little more creative. 

Rachel and I share the same passion for a lot of things in life, the main one being our love of doughnuts. So to celebrate Rachel’s birthday we created a Doughnut Cake tower using doughnuts from a shop and fresh flowers. It’s an elegant way to create a beautiful centerpiece to any birthday party! What’s more, it’s super easy to make!

The doughnuts hold up pretty well stacked up on top of each other, but if you want more stability, you can skewer them with long toothpicks or wooden kabob skewers that you’ve cut down in size!

Because this doughnut cake was for Rachel, we couldn’t have just left it plain and boring. We needed to chic it up by adding fresh flowers! It’s a simple way to turn something good into something GREAT!

The best part about this birthday doughnut cake idea is that it takes no time at all and it can be used for everything from showers to weddings… well, we think think a wedding doughnut cake would be cute anyway!

You can mix and match different types and colors of doughnuts or you can keep things simple by choosing one type of doughnut and arrange them with different colored flowers!

Place a few candles at the top to finish off the birthday cake look.
