1. The Inception Doughnut from Cinnamon Snail

Up first, the Inception Doughnut from Cinnamon Snail. I don’t have a recipe for this, and its limited-edition debut ended after just two days, but I think it could be recreated at home with a little creative recipe blending! Start with a maple raspberry doughnut, and then top with (duh) doughnut cookies that have been sprinkled with frosting-adorned Cheerios (again, duh). That’s 13 doughnuts in one — what more could you want?

Nothing like a little salt to balance out the sweet! Doesn’t the filling in these look absolutely luscious?

The beautiful color of this glaze comes from mixing freeze-dried strawberries with white chocolate. For an extra-pretty pastry, sprinkle with dried rose petals.

A list of delicious doughnuts wouldn’t be complete without the now-famous marriage of breakfast pastry and breakfast meat! This one takes it to another level with the addition of bourbon.
