Donut Fest, Melbourne, August 2017
last there. Upon coming in we saw what was billed by the fest as a "mini donut museum and art installation". It was indeed "mini". Sylvia loved the doughnut balloon.
I was sad that they had sold out of the caramillionaires. "Sea salt caramel filled donut with dark chocolate ganache, golden Caramello, gold choc nugget and edible gold bullion wrapped in cash." I am not sure I would have been able to resist.
For myself I could not face one of the huge doughnuts. So I chose a tub of little Honey Dee Loukoumades (Greek doughnuts) with nutella sauce. They were great to eat because we weren't that hungry and they were a manageable size. And they tasted delicious. So good that they were given the People's Choice Award. We ate the rest of the doughnuts at home where we could slice them up smaller. I really liked the dossant and everyone else enjoyed the rest of the doughnuts.
Sylvia was absolutely delighted by the doughnut festival. I am not convinced I would be keen to return but it was fun to go once, albeit a shame to be there without an appetite.
