I’m a huge donut fan. If I can find a way to include them in my everyday, you know I’m going to take it. So it was only a matter of time before I found a way to incorporate donuts with cake! This easy donut hole cake hack not only saves you time, stress, and a messy kitchen, but it looks and tastes great too!
Don’t get me wrong, I love to bake, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or the energy to dive into a made-from-scratch celebration cake. But that’s where these awesome cake hacks come into play! I pick up a plain grocery store cake from the bakery and work my magic. Not only does the cake turn into something completely different and fun, but it’s SO EASY! (You can find other cake hack ideas at the bottom of this post too! 😉 )
(If you can’t find a plain cake that’s already available in the bakery section at your local grocery store, talk to the employees behind the bakery counter. They can usually whip one up for you without much notice).
- Pre-Made Plain Grocery Store Cake
- Donut Holes
Once you have the entire section along the bottom of the cake covered, begin adding another line of donut holes, on top of the previous one, working each of the donuts into the gaps above the first layer.
Repeat this step until the entire side of your cake is covered with donut holes.
This donut hole cake would be cute for a kids birthday, a bachelorette party, or honestly, for anyone that just really loves donuts (& cake!)
You can stick with neutral colors like I did, or have a ton of fun with sprinkle donut holes, chocolate donut holes, or even mix and match! Regardless, this little beauty involves donuts, so you know it has my stamp of approval!
This grocery store cake hack is a super simple way to transform a boring cake into something totally fun and different, without having to bake a thing!
