Kransekake is a Danish and Norweigian cake often used at weddings and holiday celebrations.  I LOVE the look of a kransekake tower...it's so simple, yet grand.  The traditional white icing details can be elegant loops or elaborately piped swirls and patterns.  And, if you search online you'll find all sorts of creative ideas for decorating them.  The picture below was found on Pinterest at reveriegallery.com and I used it for inspiration in designing my Kransekake-style doughnut tower...

Kransekake Haute Stacker Inspiration

The lacy details remind me of the summer dresses my grandmother used to make for me when I was a little girl...they were always trimmed with eyelet lace and pretty ribbons.  

While a traditional kransekake has a tiered effect, I thought the ring design lends itself nicely to creating a kransekake-inspired stacker.  For this Haute Stacker, I just ordered Old Fashioned doughnuts from Dunkin' Donuts.  They're very simple and have no frosting or icing, which makes for a perfect canvas to pipe your frosting or in my case, melted white chocolate.

I think I had the most fun coming up with all the different patterns.  The sky is the limit with design options...next time I want to try using different colors and candies to create Scandinavian floral patterns.  This is also a great style for kids to try...even a very simple or random pattern will look beautiful when stacked all together.

I decided to use the 3" stacker plates so that they sort of "disappear" within the overall display.  One thought is to use the larger 5" stacker plates and decorate or spray paint (with edible paint of course) to create a more elaborate look.  It's a little overwhelming actually, thinking of all the possibilities!

A simple white satin ribbon bow tops this Haute Stacker.  The overall look is a tower of feminine and dainty doughnut cakes...a look perfect for a breakfast tea party or bridal brunch.

Just before I ended my photoshoot, I thought I'd try incorporating white paper doilies...just to see how it looks...and Oh My Goodness!  The doilies elevate this stacker to a whole new level!  They look like little lace skirts for each doughnut...I LOVE this look!  Start to finish...this entire stacker display only took my about 20 minutes to decorate and assemble!  I'm definitely keeping this idea in my back pocket for the next time I host a last minute get-together!
