Donuts: The New Cupcake

Donuts: The New Cupcake

Our donut program at work was boring… we offered the classics, but it had a “you can get this anywhere” vibe.  This is not what I’m going for.  I want our donuts to be worth the drive/walk/cycle to get them.  A destination donut, if you will.

So here’s what we did – contacted local Seattle companies (who have the BEST products), got our creative hats on and hit the bakery.  The rest is in the hands of a donut professional, at 5am.
