How many desserts have tried to replace cupcakes? Add another to the list.
OC Weekly's food blog, Stick A Fork In It, recently introduced me to the Cronut. It's exactly how it sounds, a mix between a croissant and a donut. According to the blog, it was invented in New York City by Dominique Ansel Bakery.
"...it's made from pastry dough that has been proofed, fried, tossed in sugar, then filled with Tahitian vanilla cream,....is finished with a rose glaze and crystallized rose petals."
Yes, I love cupcakes, but this sounds heavenly. But I can guarantee it won't replace cupcakes. I still want to eat it so bad!!!
