It was one of the students birthdays while we were in Los Angeles and we needed to buy a cake. However, we could not find one and I discovered there was a doughnut shop at Universal Studio City Walk that I thought why not make a cake out of numerous different doughnuts. I have actually heard about this company before and heard that they made good doughnuts so it was pretty cool that I had the opportunity to give this place a try.

Bacon Maple Bar


Raised yeast doughnut with maple frosting and bacon on top

I decided to buy this one for myself and not include it in the Birthday Cake. OMG, this was a brilliant and maybe the best doughnut I have ever tried. The doughnut itself was light, fluffy and had no oil aftertaste. The maple icing was not too sweet and the bacon was crunchy and savoury. Yummy!

Portland Cream

Raised yeast shell filled with Bavarian cream and topped with chocolate and two eyeballs, representing the vision of the great city of Portland.

This was part of the Birthday Cake and it was good. It is slightly like a Boston Cream but so much better. The filling was so good and had a lovely creamy egg flavour but not solid like a typical Bavarian Cream. The chocolate on top was great and altogether a legendary doughnut.



Raised yeast doughnut with glaze.

A classic doughnut that is produced really well. I think what I have noticed about bad doughnuts is how much oil soaks into the dough. This one had none that you could taste.

Apple Fritter

This was a solid doughnut and quite heavy. It was slightly hard due to glaze and heavy because of the apple that was mixed into the dough. However, this produced a lovely doughnut with cinnamon also mixed into the batter.

I can now see why people talk about these doughnuts and why there were long lines to get your hands on them. These were just some of the best doughnuts I have had. They know how to make them well here and they also have lovely friendly staff.
