Doughnut Birthday Cake

I made this for Evie's 9th birthday.  She wanted doughnuts, as in a pile of doughnuts.  However we had other ideas.

I've only the single photo of this cake.  For scale the cake board is a 10 inch round cake board.  We bought a cake tin for this, and then made two cakes in that.  These were sliced flat so they could be put together to make the doughnut, with jam in between the layers.  I made a batch of pink icing from water and icing sugar, aiming for a consistency that would seep over the edges but set before it just completely fell off.   Hundreds and thousands on top added that extra bit of sugar that was lacking before.
