Designer Donuts Latest Dessert Trend

I recently read an article in MacLean’s Magazine about designer donuts. They’re one of the hottest trends in desserts, and they’re starting to show up on wedding dessert tables instead of cupcakes and macarons.

Who doesn’t love a good donut? And if you’ve ever experienced a homemade donut made to perfection, then you wouldn’t scoff at the idea of having them at your wedding.

I still remember (with great fondness!) the homemade glazed donuts I got at a little hotel in Gatlinburg, Tennessee when I was a kid. Every morning for the entire week that we vacationed there, there would be a knock at the door and a kind soul bearing freshly squeezed orange juice, hot chocolate and warm, melt-in-your-mouth homemade donuts would magically appear. It’s one of my fondest memories of Tennessee!

If you dared to serve donuts at your wedding, what kind would you serve?

    We are serving chocolate old fashioned donuts at our wedding in 2 weeks as well as a classic cake and a cheesecake. We often get donuts with our friends and it is our favorite treat too!

    Cream cheese donuts with icing sugar. Hot from the fryer, of course. So soft, sweet, and delicious.

    Try having a chef at your wedding making fresh and warm donuts. Dozens of toppings to choose from.
