I don't know what happened 100 times for this cake to be necessary, but I am so glad that it did! Dressing a cake up like a cake in a stack is pretty genius, it almost makes me believe all the cake lies.
The real smart move here is the donut hole acting like a melted ice cream cone on top of the cupcake. Sure, on hot summer days it would be nice to have something cold and refreshing, but if you were presented with one of these, wouldn't you be pleasantly surprised to bite into a lump of awesome donut?
I love the large, polka-dot type sprinkles here. They make everything feel like the most special party. If someone makes you something with oversized sprinkles, it's pretty obvious that they love you more than anyone loved you before. FACT.
