      Birthday Cake Doughnut : There's no need to buy a specialty doughnut pan to make these frosted beauties. Just pipe the batter into circles pre-traced onto parchment paper. via Food Network

      Birthday Cake Doughnuts : These crispy, cakey doughnuts were meant to be frosted. Make the doughnuts a day in advance of your celebration and store in an airtight container. The frostings can be made ahead as well: Just refrigerate, let come to room temperature and then whip with an electric mixer until smooth before using. Frost, decorate and serve — no cake cutting required. via Food Network
