A sweet idea for a nontraditional birthday cake, this mini donut cake would make a nice birthday treat for just the family. You could also purchase premade plain donuts and decorate them with sprinkles.

If you don’t have a donut pan, this mini electric donut maker would work too (we have one and the kids love making “baked” donuts which are definitely healthier than the fried kind).
