Why the Golden Cristal Ube Donut is So Popular?

An over the top treat served in NYC has been roaming around the Internet. Called the Golden Cristal Ube Donut, a purple-yam doughnut from Manila Social Club, this $100 a piece is infused with Cristal champagne and covered in 24-karat gold.


Let's see what's in each. Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Manila Social Club, Bjorn De La Cruz hand makes each with Dense purple yam (ube) which is compressed into a mousse filling and injected into the pastry along with champagne jelly. The sweet icing is infused with Cristal, and then the whole thing is gilded in 24K Gold Dust and 24K Gold Leaf.
