National Donut Week UK: Krispy Kreme Created the World’s Most Expensive Donut
This is not just a sweet confection with glazed icing or sugar on top, it is the world’s most expensive Donut.
The $1274 tower of sweet decadence was created with gilded leaves, a Gold dusted Belgian chocolate flower and edible diamonds, all for a good cause.
Krispy Kreme unveiled the world’s most expensive Donut at Selfridges department store in UK about 2 years ago. The confection was created to mark National Donut Week, a fundraising effort benefiting the UK Children’s Trust charity.
The donut took 3 days to assemble and includes indulgent ingredients like a Dom Pérignon vintage 2002 champagne jelly with a raspberry and Chateau d’Yquem crème.
Finished with a passion fruit glaze, the donut is gilded with edible 24K Gold leaf and adorned with a hand made 23K Gold dusted Belgian white chocolate lotus flower, blossoms, ivy, butterflies and edible diamonds.
The donut rests on top of a decadent Krispy Kreme Cocktail, made from raspberry and passion fruit syrup, 500-year-old Courvoisier de L’Esprit Cognac and topped with 2002 Dom Pérignon champagne.
