When it involves epicurean opulence, few locations within the world can prime Las Vegas. The resort metropolis’s famed haute delicacies eating places are awash in costly edibles like black truffles, Kobe beef, and foie gras. Now, a bit west of the Strip, add gold-decorated donuts to the checklist.
Through the holiday season and past to Valentine’s Day, Donut Mania, an area boutique that focuses on deep-fried yeasty dough, is providing upscale candy treats adorned with edible 24Ok gold leaf and mud. The fritters are made much more fabulous with an infusion of glowing Perrier-Jouët Champagne earlier than they’re completed with seasonally themed icing designs and metallic bling.
Usually, American donuts function extra down-to-earth toppings like sugar sprinkles, chopped nuts and shredded coconut—not one of the valuable commodities on the planet.
If adorning confections with gold feels like one thing an engineer would dream up for dessert, it’s with good cause. Donut Mania is owned by Brett Raymer, one of many stars of the Tanked actuality TV sequence on the Animal Planet community. On the present, Raymer and his cohorts create huge aquariums for upscale eating places and movie star mansions. So showmanship and aptitude are a part of his on a regular basis life, even in terms of Sin City donuts.
“If there is anywhere in the world you can indulge in a donut infused with Champagne and dusted with gold, it’s Las Vegas. We do over-the-top luxury like no one else,” mentioned Raymer.
The donuts should be pre-ordered for freshness, and run a shiny $15 a pop.
