I'll be honest: it’s not exactly a doughnut. But it doesn’t matter. The 10-lb. doughnut-shaped vanilla chiffon cake layered with raspberry compote and Italian butter cream is definitely a sight to behold.
You can order this massive dessert as part of the $219 “DoNut Disturb” package at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, California.
The package includes room service, milkshakes that come with the doughnut and a $50 room credit that you can use toward other hotel services.
“The idea with this 10-lb. doughnut was to create flavors that were very similar to an actual doughnut that you might have. So if you were to have a raspberry jam-filled doughnut, that’s kind of what you get in this package,” said Dominic Valenzuela, the executive pastry chef at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort.
Valenzuela says it takes about two to three hours to complete the one-foot wide, six-in. tall doughnut. He said there has been more than six orders for the doughnut since it was first offered during Labor Day weekend. The luxurious package is available all year.
