The easiest Mother’s day cake is made by creating a donut cake. Very young children can make this cake quite easily, with adult supervision and it’s a great and fun way  to spend quality time with little kid’s on Mothering Sunday morning while Mom is getting a lie-in.

To make the cake you will need:

2 x 12 packs of basic donuts – we used plain supermarket ones

1 quantity of Chocolate Ganache (see here for recipe)

Your choice of decorations (****)

Take the serving platter or plate you will be using and practice with your donuts to get a good idea of how you will stack them once they are iced with the Ganache chocolate icing.

Brush excess sugar and crumbs from donut

Once you have planned your shape take the donuts one by one and brush off any excess sugar

Dip the donuts into the Ganache until half-coated with the chocolate icing.

Set aside on a rack while the icing sets on the donuts.

Once the icing is set arrange on the serving platter as planned before.

The donuts will stick together better now they are iced.
