I write this post with a heavy air of inevitability about me. It turns out, you see, that since I mentioned in passing that my wedding cake was made with Krispy Kreme doughnuts (fueling a lifelong addiction), some variation on that term has become the number one Google search to reach my site.
But you ask, so I must deliver. Here, finally, are the three easy steps we went through to create our Krispy Kreme Doughnut Cake. Credit where credit is due: the whole thing was executed by our roommate at the time.
- We got a set of styrofoam cake dummies. We got ‘em at a restaurant supply store, or you could get ‘em here.
- We got 11 dozen original Krispy Kreme doughnuts and piled ‘em on. (We used three round cake dummies and 11 dozen gave us a little leftover.)
- We used pretty ribbon, flowers, and a traditional wedding cake topper (tacky, but that’s the point, right?) to dress it up.
We repeated the process for Boobaby’s first birthday, although with only one level of cake dummy. We had a butterfly theme, so we got some supplies from a party store.
