Fellow CC'ers:

I was contacted today by a donut shop who received my info from one of my longtime clients. The donut shop is having some promotional activities in the community and they are sponsoring a decorator's competition.

I have been asked to participate. I can make anything I want but the catch is that I have to use their donuts as the "cake". I can use buttercream, fondant, and any of the creative decorating techniques we commonly use.

Here's the catch- I don't know what to make!!! My concern is how would I ice the cake because of all the holes and indentions in the donuts??

has anyone ever made a cake from donuts before? It can be no more than 4 tiers tall. Any ideas????

Any suggestions/ideas/help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

If you spread a thin layer of buttercream on the donut and a layer of fondant, I don't see how difficult that would be.

You can also crush the donuts, just like you are making cake balls, mix it with buttercream and shape it onto the pans. Once it takes the shape, take it off and cover in fondant.
