Currently the world’s most expensive donut prices in at $1,975, a price that’s boosted by the donut being topped with Cristal champagne caviar.
The Luxury Zebra Cro. sold at London’s Dum Dum Donutterie is a black and white colored donut with dough made from saffron infused butter. Tahitian gold vanilla beans and rare Amedei Porcelana chocolate add to both the taste and the appearance, and then of course the Cristal rosé champagne caviar and gold leaf flakes really set it apart from the competition.
The donut was initially created for London’s Just Eat Food Fest. The Dum Dum Donutterie founder Paul Hurley spoke out about his creation.
“After months of testing flavor combinations with some of the world’s rarest and specially sourced ingredients, I’ve created the most luxurious Cro I’ve tasted!”
The same donut shop has set donut records in the past, like when they created a giant ten inch donut that was meant to serve 15 people and cost $80 a pop. This massive donut to share was available in all of their flavors, but “The Zebra” was another popular black and white creation that was made with quadruple-cocoa masterpiece layers of plain croissants and chocolate croissants, and topped with chocolate buttercream.
