(ABC News) — One restaurant has concocted sparkly, red carpet-ready doughnuts inspired by the Oscars this Sunday that have been described as “too pretty to eat.”
The doughnuts, featuring glittery gold glazing over a rich red velvet center, are meant to “capture the awards show experience in a doughnut,” according to Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken co-founder and CEO Elliot Spaisman.
“Everyone loves awards show viewing parties and everyone loves doughnuts,” he told ABC News in a statement. “We decided to combine the two and create a doughnut fit for Hollywood.”
The golden outside was inspired by the statuettes given out on Hollywood’s big night, while the red velvet inside imitates the red carpet, he added.
Spaisman said that a “common complaint” they’ve received about the doughnuts is that they are “too pretty to eat.”
“But once people dive in, they seem to have no regrets,” he added.
