Recipe to Recreate “The Big Donut” from Zootopia

Remember this scene from Zootopia? The massive donut rolls through a small shrew town while Judy Hopps chases down the bad guy. Judy saves the day as she catches the big donut just before it hits Mr. Big’s lovely daughter, Fru Fru. Well, has a fantastic cake recipe inspired by “The Big Donut” that we just have to share! Happy baking Zootopia fans!

3. Meanwhile, roll out fondant onto a cutting board. Use a small paring knife to cut out “THE BIG” in smaller letters and “DONUT” in larger letters. Set aside.

4. Once cake is cool, put it on a plate. (Tip: To easily remove cake from cake pan, place a large plate over the pan, hold the edges together and flip upside-down so the cake pops out onto the plate.)

5. Use a small glass or mason jar and cut out a circle in the middle of the cake. Remove center piece and extra crumbs.

6. Frost only the top of the cake to resemble a frosted donut.

7. Add sprinkles and fondant letters on top.

 Serve and enjoy!


About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
