"AS SEEN ON TV"... "BAKE GIANT DONUTS!!!"
Actually, I have never seen it on tv, but then again, I don't ever really watch tv. I was at JoAnn's Fabrics last week picking up foam and fabric for seat cushions in our breakfast nook. I walked past a display of different gadgets "AS SEEN ON TV!", and this giant donut cake was one of them. I guess I'm going from one extreme to another. I'm not really sure what is happening to me, but this donut cake kit was marked down from $15 to $7 and we have a birthday in the family next month. So I decided to buy it. I thought it would be fun to make a few of these in different varieties. (They have a maple donut recipe, a frosted strawberry one, and others.) All you need is a regular cake mix and a small container of icing. Oh yes, and sprinkles of course!
After I brought it home, my daughter found it and we decided to invite her friend over and try the kit out. It worked great except I think I got the icing a little too thin. It ran down the sides too far. I think it still looks like a donut though! What do you think? The boys and their friends thought it was cool, but they were a little disappointed that it didn't "taste" like a donut!
They have big oreo cake mixes and giant cupcake ones too. You have probably seen them. I like this one and the cupcake one. Not sure I would ever pay full price though!
