Birthday Donut Cake

Birthday Donut Cake


Celebrate someone special’s birthday with this super-fun, super-customizable Donut Cake! It’s been a tradition in our family for years and I’m excited to share how we create them!


  • giant donut from your favorite donut shop (about 12 inches in diameter)
  • a good selection of the birthday person’s favorite donuts


  1. Use a giant donut as the base of the donut cake
  2. Top the giant donut with a variety of the birthday person’s favorite donuts
  3. Add decorations and candles
  4. Enjoy!


My local donut shop makes a giant 12″ donut I use for the base. If it’s not on the menu at your local donut shop, you might have to make a special request!
