Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) from “Stranger Things” has THE best hybrid birthday cake ever

Gaten Matarazzo instantly charmed us as the funny and lovable Dustin on Stranger Things – and now one of our new favorite kid actors is celebrating his 14th birthday!

Gaten decided that he didn’t want just any type of cake for his birthday – but rather, a donut cake.

“My mom asked me what I wanted on my birthday cake this year (we celebrated a little early) and I told her I wanted donuts!!!”

Gaten’s cake is a glorious hybrid between a cake and a donut – GENIUS.


As awesome as the donut cake is, Gaten received another birthday cake while making an appearance on the show Chelsea – presented to him by none other than Barb (Shannon Purser)!


Barb lives – and she brought cake!

But Shannon wasn’t the only cast member to wish Gaten a happy birthday – Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) also wished her ‘big brother’ Dustin a happy 14th via Instagram.

Finn Wolfhard (Mike) had a cute birthday wish for his ‘brother.’

And Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) jumped in on the birthday wishes with this cute throwback pic.

Happy 14th Birthday, Gaten! Enjoy all the cake!
