Culinary Corner: Heart Shaped Donut Cake

There’s nothing that says Valentine’s Day quite like our Heart-Shaped Donuts. Is there any V-Day treat that’s better than these Cookie Dough or Brownie Batter-filled goodness? I can only think of one thing and that’s an entire cake made of Heart-Shaped Donuts! To create this custom cake build, follow along the step-by-step instructions below, created by our very own Chef Molly! To see this cake made first-hand, check out our first Facebook Live video from last night, available on our Facebook page!

Heart Shaped Donut



  1. Purchase one dozen Dunkin’ Donuts Heart-Shaped Donuts (we recommend a variety of Cookie Dough and Brownie Batter).
  2. Arrange them in the shape you'd like your cake to be. I made a circle with the points of the donuts facing in, but whatever floats your boat since it’s sure to turn out super cute!
  3. Use a piping bag to top each donut with your sweetheart’s favorite frosting.
  4. Decorate with icing and sprinkles!

Additionally, for couples who are looking to get married this year, we’re hosting a contest just for you! Yesterday, we announced an online contest, “Dunkin’ Hearts Love,” to give engaged couples the chance to win a $10,000 wedding present.
