Here's How The $100 Donut Is Made

There's a $100 donut that's driving the Internet mad. It's a gold speckled dessert made with Cristal champagne and covered in edible gold flakes. What does it taste like? Is it actually good? Well, to set curious minds at ease Forbes has gone ahead and tested this luxurious treat.

Before you watch the video below here's some background to set the scene:

The pricy donut is the brainchild of Bjorn De La Cruz, executive chef and co-founder of Manila Social Club in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is filled with mousse made from ube - a sweet purple yam popular in Filipino desserts - and finished with Cristal icing and champagne jelly. It is then hand gilded in 24K gold dust and 24k gold leaf. Each one sells for $100 but if you are looking for a bargain then buy a dozen for just $1,000.

Watch what happens when Katie Sola from Forbes sinks her teeth into this decadent dessert which, by the way, would be the best accompaniment to this $100 super gold pizza.
