My Dunkaroo Cake is one of my newer creations! The idea for this cake comes from one of my followers on Instagram and I couldn’t agree more with her idea! Dunkaroos was one of my absolute favorite snacks as a kid, so turning this staple treat into a cake was a dream come true. This cake includes graham cracker layers, confetti buttercream, and a white chocolate-covered graham cracker crumble!
