I made this giant 3D donut cake for my donut-loving daughter, Carissa's, 6th birthday.
I also made these little baby donuts to put in the kids' goodie bags.
Well, actually I ended up asking my kids and my sister, Casandra, to make them while I worked on the cake. They were excited to get to make them, and they had a lot of fun. My daughter, Cara, actually made some little donuts similar to these previously when she went over to her friend's house one time. (They used Nutella and some different little toppings on theirs.) I thought they were a really cute and fun idea. So, to make ours, I put a little bit of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry buttercream icing in three separate bowls and put them in the microwave about 5-10 seconds, just to thin the icing a little bit. Then Casandra and the kids got Cheerios, dipped the top halves in the different icings, and then dipped them into different kinds of sprinkles. And there you have it - some cute little baby donuts. :) We separated them into dozens, wrapped them up, and included one dozen in each goodie bag. I thought a cute idea would have been to put them in tiny white boxes, but I just didn't have enough time to see what was out there.
