 This cake may look insane and tricky, but it's the EASIEST cake you could make! Decadent? Yes. Delicious? Yes. Difficult? NOT AT ALL!

1. Buy a store bought cake or make one from a box... normally I'd say absolutely not, but when you're going to cover it with donuts, you might as well. I made this one with an angel food cake box mix since that's my mom's fav and it was her birthday!
2. Buy plain or glazed donuts in regular and mini sizes from the store. Donut holes would have been really cute, but they didn't have any that day. The minis were from a Hostess bag!
3. Make the glaze (recipe below). I divided the glaze up into three bowls and tinted them with food coloring
4. Pour the glaze just on top of the cake and let the sides drip down. Top with sprinkles and let dry.
5. Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze and top with sprinkles and let dry.
6. Pile up the donuts on top of the cake and secure with tooth picks. That's it.

2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp butter, very soft
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbps hot milk
Mix all together. If the glaze is too thick to be drippy, add a little more milk. If it's too runny, add more powdered sugar. Divide the glaze into three bowls with a little more glaze in the color you'll use for the cake. The glaze dries pretty quickly so make sure to cover with saran wrap pressed to the top if you make ahead of time.

This is a great glaze for frosting sugar cookies too!
This would be so yummy with a chocolate ganache or caramel or peanut butter... yum the list goes on!

Are you guys drooling over the selection of platforms and wedges out right now like we are? It seems like every time we browse the web or check IG, there is a pair calling our name. To be honest, when the seasons change and it is time to up your shoe game, it is often hard to splurge on trendy pieces that we just can't see ourselves wearing in everyday "mom world". What we love about wedges and platforms is that, unlike a heel, you could actually wear these out for a few errands with the kids, a lunch date with your girlfriend, or even a date night with your guy! It is a win win for us! We even love the idea of pairing the Teva platform sandal with your favorite workout leggings after the gym just to take your style up a notch. 
Here are some practical AND affordable pairs that we are swooooooning over....

Hey guys! Happy Friday! We are ending the week with a suuuuuuper simple kids' table setting for Easter brunch. It is usually a gloomy day on Easter, and the lighting for this table shoot is no different. ha! It has been raining here in Nashville, and that beautiful natural lighting is hiding out.

We got most everything you see here at.... wait for it.... Target!! Surprise, right? Honestly, when I came across these UUUUHMAAAZING paper plates that Design Love Fest did for Cheeky Home, I knew I had to do something with them. We scored in the dollar section, which is always so great for projects like this. Kids tend to destroy things, so you want the table to look great, but don't want to break the bank. Of course we had to add in some of our custom tattoos (here in our Etsy shop) because they are just so fun! My daughter wanted to put all of these on, and didn't understand that we needed them for the table as well. She is a huge supporter of the biz! ;)

What are your Easter plans? We always do our church service then head to brunch as a family. It is truly one of my MOST favorite holidays. I love getting the family dressed up, eating good food and just enjoying such a happy day.
