Absolutely Epic Doughnut Cake

This cake is so amazing, you will want to make it for your next birthday party. It tastes just like the famous treats from The Donut Shop in Fort Wayne!

This is a recipe for a small donut cake. It’s quick and easy, and you can make it in the oven or the microwave. You’ll need a donut pan to make this cake, but if you don’t have one, you can use muffin tins instead.

Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dessert is a cake composed entirely of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and drenched in chocolate fudge sauce. I’ve passed away and am now in paradise!

Cake with Donuts

So that’s what I did. This incredible, huge stuff. Krispy Kreme doughnuts were used to make a cake. PEOPLE, YES. DOUGHNUT CAKE WITH KREME INSPIRATION. 

So I did some research and discovered that doughnut cakes aren’t really a thing… yet. Doughnut walls exist, but not doughnut cakes. But let’s look at the bright side. As a result, we have a chance to be the first and finest Doughnut Cake producers in the world. So, in 2018, let’s make Doughnut Cakes a thing.

You may be wondering what’s in a doughnut cake. How do you go about making one? Three dozen Krispy Kreme Original Glazed® Doughnuts, a ton of whipped cream, and handmade chocolate fudge sauce are all you’ll need. Isn’t it simple?

How to make your own donut cake

Of course, the best part about this cake is how many different varieties you can make. I came up with a few:

  • For a holiday-inspired cake, replace the conventional whipped cream with eggnog whipped cream.
  • Use salted caramel instead of fudge sauce for the perfect salty/sweet balance.
  • For a chocolate explosion, replace standard Krispy Kreme yeasted doughnuts with Krispy Kreme Glazed Chocolate Cake Doughnuts.

What is the best way to create a doughnut cake?

This cake is really simple to make. There’s no need to create your own doughnuts when Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts are just right. They’re light and fluffy, and just the right size for a six-layer doughnut cake.

You must set down the cake layers in a certain way to guarantee that your cake stands tall. Six doughnuts are used in the bottom two layers (one in the center and five circled around it). Only four doughnuts are used in the following two layers, and so on. The layers are held together with homemade whipped cream, and the rich chocolate fudge sauce is poured on top to take this cake to the next level.

I sliced some of my doughnuts into quarters and used them to fill in any gaps between the full doughnuts to keep the cake looking extra lovely. It prevented my cake from having deep caves around the edges.

And, of course, a sparkler on top is the traditional method to give a cake. Just take a look at that halo.

Ingredients

to make the cake:

  • Krispy Kreme Glazed Doughnuts, 3 dozen
  • 3 quarts of thick cream
  • 2 tbsp. sugar (granulated)

To make the chocolate fudge sauce, combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  • 1 quart of thick cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)

Instructions

  1. Whip the cream and sugar in a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until medium to firm peaks form.
  2. Spread a tiny dollop on a big cake stand for layer one, then insert one donut in the middle. Create your first layer by placing five doughnuts around it. Spread 3/4 cup whipped cream on top of the doughnuts, then repeat for the second layer: one doughnut in the middle, five doughnuts surrounding it, and 3/4 cup whipped cream on top.
  3. Place four doughnuts on the cake for layers three and four, forming a pyramid. In between the layers, add another 3/4 cup of whipped cream.
  4. For layer 5, make a triangle with three doughnuts and 1/4 cup whipped cream in the middle.
  5. Place a single doughnut on top of layer 6!
  6. To create the fudge sauce, bring the heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chunks. Stir until everything is well blended. Allow for some cooling time before spreading the sauce over the cake!
