Donut Cake

Cake is one of those desserts that is just hit or miss—you either love it or you hate it. But weddings are simply not complete without a traditional cake cutting. You know, the one where the newlyweds get all cutesy and shove cake in each other’s faces. 

So if you’re not a huge fan of cake and you want to mix it up a bit, there are plenty of ways to do so. Believe it or not, doughnut wedding cakes have been a trend (not to be confused with donut walls) we keep seeing more and more.

In fact, the need for wedding doughnuts was so great that Krispy Kreme Australia even created a “Celebrations” collection that features a “Wedding Dozen.” Hand-dipped and drizzled in white chocolate, these beautiful bridal doughnuts would make for the perfect donut stack as an alternative to the typical very pricey traditional cake.

So whether you want to stray away from cake or you and your future spouse are just doughnut fanatics, keep scrolling for the best ways to create a one-of-a-kind, yet classy doughnut cake. Put a ring (get it?) on it, and say “I dough” to these delicious doughnut cakes.
