Last year, the Cronut took New York (and then the world) by storm. It was at the forefront of a renewed craze for designer confections and, more specifically, so-called "food mashups". Though we haven't reached Nuts and Gum yet, the craze is far from finished:
- Chicago's "wonut" (and now L.A.'s "wownut") subs croissants with waffles for an entirely new donut hybrid. Good thing recipes can't be copyrighted. [url]
- The original Cronut creator has unveiled his newest creation in New York. It's a shot-glass sized cup made of cookie and filled with milk, which seems a little more gimmicky (and less likely to catch on) than the Cronut. [url]
- This $1,000 sundae puts other deluxe desserts (and, arguably, modern consumer culture) to shame. Like many such desserts, it includes edible gold leaf and some inedible jewelry to help justify the prestige pricing. [url]
