Krispy Kreme donut - Luxury Retail
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.
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.
