It was unveiled at Selfridges to mark National Doughnut Week, which we are delighted to learn is a thing.

3. The doughnut’s ingredients include a Dom Pérignon vintage 2002 champagne jelly, and a raspberry and Chateau d’Yquem crème.

4. It was gilded with edible 24-carat gold leaf, and the white chocolate lotus flower was dusted with 23-carat gold dust and edible diamonds.

5. Plus it came with this raspberry and passionfruit cocktail made with 500 year-old Courvoisier and 2002 Dom Pérignon.
