One of my favorite people on the planet is my great niece, Khloe with a K. A couple of weeks ago, she asked if she could have her 8th birthday party here at the cabin and would I make her another donut cake. My first response was yes, but the next response was …. another? I don’t remember making a donut cake before, but of course I said no problem. After some sleuthing, her dad reminded me of the bundt cake I made her last summer when she visited. Ah-ha!
Well alrighty then. Now I’m more of a pie girl so don’t be thinking you are going to get an amazing cake recipe from me. Ain’t going to happen. But, I love a challenge and I love the relationship I have with Khloe, so there was no way I was going to disappoint her.
After a quick trip to the grocery store, I now have a special relationship with Pillsbury too. Two boxes of Funfeti cake mix later I was ready to begin. I mixed up both boxes and filled 4 small bundt-type pans and 1 regular sized pan. I just followed the package directions, so I won’t bore you with the recipe.
I used a basic buttercream frosting. I decided to call the frosting Electric Boogaloo. I made it half purple and left half white and put a ton of sprinkle on top. Score!
Khloe was happy, I was happy. So, that’s how Khloe invented the donut cake. Make one for someone you love.
