Make a Donut Cake for the coffee lover in your life. Assemble a thoughtful cake in 5 minuted flat- sure to impress your friends, family, or coworkers!

Donut Cake- perfect birthday "cake" to bring to the office!

What could be better than a Donut Cake? I seriously wish I had an office job so that I could bring this in one day and be awesome.

Next time bring a Doughnut Cake

But my job is here in pretend Internet Land. SO can we all just agree that I can be awesome here for a few days? Maybe just and hour or 2? That will help me feel better about forgetting the laundry in the the washing machine overnight, and running out of milk and bread last week.

Donut Cake. Yum.

When I was a teacher I know my coworkers would’ve been ALL over a Donut Cake. The only thing better than donuts is coffee, and I have a pretty special kind of coffee to tell you about today.

Donut Cake- because coffee and donuts are what everyone wants for their birthday.

Coffee FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Click Here to my giveaway page to enter the giveaway for a GIANT prize pack from Dunkin’ Donuts. Giveaway Closed. You want this coffee. Buhlieve me. Well, there’s a whole lot of cash involved too if you’re into that.

    You were a teacher?! Sorry, probably not what I was supposed to notice from this post, but I had no idea! And you are definitely awesome with this cake, probably for at least 48 hours!

    I am definitely making this for my non-cake eating, donut loving teenage daughter’s birthday next month. She will be all over it. And Ice Cream is a must, too.

    I’m so glad I stopped and entered to win the $350 Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series Coffee Prize Pack! I adore the Donut Cake and would really prefer doing that for someone’s birthday instead of baking or buying a cake. Less mess, no fuss and everybody gets to choose their favorite version of deliciousness. Thanks so much, and wish me luck!
