Comfort Food Mash-Ups, Remixed: Birthday Cake + Doughnuts

Surfing the wave of mash-up mania that brought the world the Cronut™ and Ramen Burger, we decided to beat the winter by partnering with our brilliant culinary team in order to come up with THE most-indulgent comfort food. Together with Food Network, we’ve mashed up some classic comfort foods in unique — and dare we say, mind-blowing — ways. Over the past several weeks, we’ve revealed the ways we mixed and remixed some of our favorite dishes, with one recipe appearing on Cooking Channel and the other on Food Network.

Though birthday cake is traditionally round, layered and bedecked in colorful icing, these days, it seems that any pastry punctured with candles — from soft cookie cakes to icebox pies — can stand in for the classic at celebratory festivities. At the same time, “birthday cake” has become a popular flavor at ice cream shops and in packaged consumer goods, interpreted across the board as an intense vanilla with frosting and sprinkles. For this week’s ultimate and final mash-up, we’re rethinking birthday cake — from a shape and flavor perspective — by combining it with the dessert superstar of the moment: the doughnut.

The best part of this fabulous Funfetti-hued cake? It is made using only six ingredients (including the sprinkles and sugar). Simply line a springform pan with your favorite store-bought doughnuts and a cream cheese-vanilla-cream mixture (and repeat), then let your fridge work its layer-melding, cake-making magic. Cutting into this customizable cake reveals a cross section of cream, doughnut rounds and plenty of sprinkles, sure to give its celebrants a pleasant, party-spirited sugar high.

What would you call this pairing? Would you give the dishes a different name on each site? Tell us in the comments below, on Facebook or on Twitter.
