Did you know that if you make a chocolate bundt cake, round off the bottom edge, spread a thin layer of chocolate frosting over the entire thing, and top it off with a generous smattering of pink frosting & colorful sprinkles, you’ll end up with a cake that looks just like a giant donut? True story! I made this fun cake on a whim for my friend’s 30th birthday while vowing not to break down and buy an actual giant donut cake pan (I think my kitchen would revolt if I brought one more useless novelty item home). Success!

    Yum! I was so hungry today at the grocery store I broke down and got a donut while I was shopping. I handed the empty bag to the cashier at the end of the shopping trip. I felt like I could eat that whole donut cake!
