This Coffee and Donut Cake is a Krispy Kreme Cake with a twist. It’s a novelty birthday cake idea that’s popping up everywhere from kids parties to weddings. Usually the cakes are little more than stacked donuts with a ribbon tied around them. That’s cute and all, but if you really want to stand out from the crowd (and I know you do) then I think we can do better. Everything on this cake is edible and I promise it’s only slightly harder than stacking those Krispy Kreme’s yet far more memorable!

The Coffee & Donut Cake idea is so versatile. With a newspaper cake board, it’s perfect for a Policeman’s birthday cake, like this one. But there are tons of other ways to use the same basic idea. Imagine this in a girly teacup style cup with cupcakes in place of the donuts for a great tea party centerpiece. Or a Starbucks take-out coffee cup with breakfast pastries for an office birthday cake surprise! The meringue ‘coffee foam’ dusted with cocoa is super easy and so realistic it’ll really surprise you.

It’s such a fun cake to make and it really is a conversation starter at any party. So go on, make one - you know you want to!

Decorator’s Note: This is a great technique that has endless possibilities. It’s perfect for sporting team logos, corporate logos or family crests as well as intricate patterns. It’s a much easier way to add detail that trying to pipe directly on to the cake and it adds more dimension that traditional piping techniques! Please don’t feel intimidated – if you want to keep this design super easy just pipe some freeform swirls on the side of your cup with your frosting and skip the chocolate background. You’ll still have a fantastic finished cake.
