Cream-filled Doughnut Cake in MSP?

Does anyone know where I can find a Bavarian cream-type filled doughnut cake in the area? I don't want a cake made up of a bunch of stacked regular-sized doughnuts, nor do I want "just" a large raised doughnut...I want cream in the middle. Preferably western suburbs, but may be willing to drive. Thanks very much! I

      I have no idea what that is either, but I am really looking forward to the replies. It sounds awesome!

    2. They have a beehive cake at Hans Bakery in Anoka. Check it out, sounds kinda like what you're looking for.

          Nope, I was there last week. Still very much in business.

      1. Sorry, I've been busy! The doughnut cakes they make at the Donut Hole (a few locations in ND and possibly MT) are about 14" in diameter (with a hole in the middle), a cross between a raised and cake doughnut (according to the dude I spoke with yesterday), cut in half, filled with bavarian cream, and frosted with chocolate. So, it's like a giant bavarian cream doughnut with a 6" diameter hole in the middle. Mmmmmmm.

          I was going to ask if it was a Donut Hole cake you were looking for. I'm from ND and have had more than my fair share of them. LOL Unfortunately, I'm don't know of any place in the Cities that does something like them, but good luck with your quest!
