Swim Ring Cakes for #SundaySupper

It is Pool Party time today at #SundaySupper! Everyone is bringing something yummy to eat, so I  brought some Swim Ring Cakes! These cakes are made using a cake doughnut recipe and are frosted with royal icing for a sweet treat! I made several versions of the cake before deciding on one of them. I tried using a white cake recipe, and it was very tasty, like white cakes are, but it was not as dense as I thought this dessert needed. Then I tried a couple different version of a cake doughnut recipe, and I liked how the cakes were thicker, but I wasn't crazy for the taste. I finally decided to mix the denseness of the doughnut recipe with the flavor of the white cake recipe, and I think know you are going to like it!

 printable recipe
2 cups Cake Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
3/4 cup Warm Water
5 tablespoons Meringue Powder
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
2.25 pounds Confectioner's Sugar

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
Sift your cake flour, sugar and baking powder into your mixing bowl.
Add the buttermilk, 2 eggs, vanilla and butter to the dry mix. Beat until combined.
Fill the pan 2/3 of the way full. I used a cake decorating bag filled with the batter to fill the pan. It was clean, easy and quick to fill. You can also use a spoon to fill each cake opening. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely.

Make the frosting by placing the warm water and the meringue powder in a large mixing bowl.Mix for 30 seconds. Add cream of tartar and mix for 30 seconds more. Add confectioner's sugar all at once. Mix on low for 10 minutes. Mix different colors in small bowls for your doughnuts. You will need to add a small amount of warm water to the frosting to reach the desired consistency.
Frost and decorate!

Now, let's get this party started!  Check out what everyone else brought to the Pool Party!
Have fun!
