Krispy Kreme created the world's most expensive donut


This is not your average sweet confectionery with glazed icing or sugar on top. In fact, you're looking at the world’s most expensive donut. The £1,000 (around US$1274) tower of sweet decadence was created with a royalty of 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 two years ago. The confection was created to mark National Donut Week — a fundraising effort benefiting the UK Children’s Trust charity.

The donut took three 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.
