1.Preheat oven to 150°C/300°F. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
2.Secure one cake to 30cm (12-inch) round cake board with a little frosting. Spread cake top with cup of chocolate frosting; top with remaining cake. Using a small serrated knife, trim cake into a volcano shape. Secure donut to the top of the cake with a little frosting. Spread remaining chocolate frosting over top and sides of cake.
3.Place boiled lollies into sandwich bag and gently smash with a rolling pin or meat mallet until broken into small pieces. Place pieces onto the oven tray; place in oven for 10 minutes or until lollies have melted. Use the back of a metal spoon to thin out edges. Cool toffee on tray.
4.Discard chocolate coating from honeycomb, if necessary. Roughly chop honeycomb.
5.Tint coconut yellow. Using picture as a guide, position coconut, honeycomb and nerds around the base and sides of the volcano. Tint the vanilla frosting orange in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat frosting in a microwave oven on MEDIUM (50%) for 20 seconds or until melted.
6.Pour orange frosting around the top and down the sides of the volcano. Break cooled toffee into pieces; position in the top of the volcano as fire.
