Let's be honest: everyone loves doughnuts.  If someone were to tell me they don't like doughnuts, I would probably run because that person is not trustworthy.  On any bad day I want doughnuts.  On any celebratory day I want doughnuts. Are you sensing a theme?  Doughnuts are amazing.

 

I was feeling inspired by a doughnut I was snacking on and decided to break out my trusty bundt pan to make a doughnut cake!  Because let's be real: who doesn't love things that look and taste like doughnuts?  No one, that's correct.
