Donut Birthday Cakes Are The Best
26 Mar 2016
My coworkers created a masterful birthday cake of donuts for a guy at the office and it was a huge hit. In fact, everyone loved the idea so much that I think people were afraid to take a donut for fear of messing up the spectacular tower. I thought more about it and here’s why donut birthday cakes are so awesome:
Unexpected and Unique
People don’t see donut birthday cakes very often so when they do, they get excited! Donuts are something different and signify fun.
Easy, Quick and Not So Expensive
In today’s busy world, sometimes you don’t want to spend the time nor money to either bake an elaborate cake yourself or purchase a custom cake at the bakery. Picking up donuts is quick and requires no notice. There is no baking (unless you really want to add several hours to your prep time) and donuts cost alot less than a cake.
Sprinkles Are Fun
Sprinkles on donuts are colorful and fun. The variety in sprinkle colors and frosting makes the birthday tower pop with splashes of color and ensures that each guest can find a donut they like.
Birthday Bunting and Candles Dress It Up
It is simple to give a donut birthday cake a hint of elegance with a DIY banner across the donuts. All you need are 2 straws as the posts, a string and plastic or paper triangles. Glamour can also be gleaned through the use of fancy birthday candles.
Cleanup is a Breeze
The best part is the cleanup. There are no cake crumbs and half eaten cake slices to deal with. If you have extra donuts, either give them to the guests to take home or simply put them back in a donut box to eat later on.
