birthday cake doughnuts recipe ideas

[Susty Party candles, plates, napkins c/o]

If everyone ate dessert with sprinkles I feel (moderately) confident the world would be a happier place. It could be like Flintstone’s vitamins for adults: little to no nutritional value but entertaining all the same. And this mini stack of birthday cake doughnuts really takes the prize. First of all, they’re baked, so the whole “healthier than” argument can be made. Secondly, they are their own individual serving size. Finally, they make the most adorable display piece when stacked with a few candles. I followed a pink theme for mine, using Susty Party plates and red food coloring. I love the sweet, modern twist on a birthday cake. It’s refreshing and playful making the perfect option for any age and every occasion.
