“A Florida doughnut shop is celebrating its grand opening with a $100 doughnut containing 24-karat gold and Cristal champagne.
Bjorn Delacruz, pastry chef at Enter Through the Donut Shop, in Miami Beach, said the Gold Cristal Ube Donut is loaded with luxurious ingredients.
`It`s created from a base of ube, which is a sweet purple yam from the Philippines,` he told WVSN-TV.
`Within the ube mousse we suspend little bits of Cristal gelee, basically Jell-O shots made from Cristal. We cover it with Cristal icing. I airbrush it with some gold, and then I guild it with about with six to nine sheets of edible gold,` he said.
Doughnuts are the staple of Joe the mechanic, Bob the cop and Larry the truck driver; it`s the delicious morning treat that provides nourishment to the working person.
Leave it to a trendy douchebag to commit sacrilege by introducing a $100 doughnut containing 24-karat gold and Cristal champagne. The mere thought of this culinary abomination makes me want to vomit.
Doughnuts and champagne just don`t go together, what I need in the morning to get me going is a doughnut or two and an industrial strength cup of coffee.
The pastry chef at Through the Donut Shop brags about the luxurious ingredients of his $100 doughnut, with all due respect he can stick his ube mousse and edible gold up his wazoo. The only ingredients that a doughnut needs are fried flour and sugar, lots of sugar.
I prefer my doughnuts to be laden with sugar sprinkles, it goes without saying that edible gold is fool`s gold.
When you bite into a $100 doughnut you might remark: I can taste the sweet essence of the sweet purple yam, and the aftertaste of the Cristal gelee is divine!
But when you devour a delicious poor man`s doughnut, you will be so overwhelmed by the fried sugary delight that all you will be able to utter is: mmm donuts!
