Between cronuts and waffle cupcakes, baked goods are no longer allowed to be ordinary. The latest example of this trend is the Golden Cristal Ube Donut from The Manila Social Club. The Williamsburg, Brooklyn restaurant—where else would such an absurd creation come from?—started offering the donut for a mere $100 a pop over the holidays.

The glimmering donut is "adorned with icing made with Cristal champagne and filled with an ube mousse, champagne jelly, and covered with 24k Gold," according to the restaurant's Instagram. Ube is fancy speak for purple yam, and the fluffy dessert's creator, Björn DelaCruz, says that the ube nicely compliments the "honey notes" of Cristal.
