    FYI It's made of champagne, looks like a spaceship, and costs £1,000.

    Look at this glorious feat of overdone confectionery.

    It looks like a gilded lotus flower crossed with a spaceship - but it's actually a Krispy Kreme doughnut worth £1,000.

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

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

    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.

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

    Krispy Kreme awarded the intimidating doughnut to prize-winner Claudine Taylor, from London.

    Well done, Claudine. We don't know how you approached the doughnut to eat it, but we imagine you gave it a good go.
