I got a request from a dear friend to make a cake of doughnuts for her hubby who is also one of my closest friends, he doesn't really like cake, but this is a big b-day for him "30", so I was just trying to figure out the best way to to this and how to decorate it manly with it still looking like doughnuts. He collects dvd's and goes and sees practically every movie when it comes out, so I was thinking something with movie reels, or popcorn as part of the decoration on top...I am just not sure, any ideas???? Thanks so much.

post #3 of 6, is it CAKE that just looks like donuts? Or are you making
him a birthday cake OUT of donuts. I'm confused? icon_confused.gif

I've seen photos online of stacked donuts & snack cakes for weddings. Should be an easy thing to pull off for a birthday, right?

If it's going to be all doughnuts you could attach dowels to a wood cakeboard with screws. Then stack the doughnuts so the dowels run through the middle of the doughnuts. That way the doughnuts won't fall over, and it will look more uniform. To make it look like a popcorn bucket, frost the outside of the tall round donut "cake" with red and white strips and make the popcorn out of fondant or marshmellows. You could even use real carmel corn on top.HTH
