dum dums donutterie
happy birthday tom!!!
dum dums donutterie is insane! they helped me make an 8ins personalised giant cro (cronut) and it was incredible. i chose to super size their strawberries and cream cro because it looked the most impressive (pretty). for the record, “cros” or “cronuts” are a new breed of donuts currently tantalising our taste buds here in london! it’s a cross between a croissant and a donut (did you guess that before i even told you?).
i surprised tom the morning of his birthday. i quickly popped out and headed for boxpark to collect the giant cro i had ordered. jiro was the guy dealing with mY order and he was just lovely. he helped me every step of the way from the ordering process to meeting mY deadline. i came back to our apartment and had the dining table set up. i told him to lock himself in the bedroom until it was good for him to come out ha!
the giant cro was beautifully decorated and the writing neat. i want to get into cake decorating but mY handwriting will fail me!
inside were layers and layers of donutti goodness! the cream was fresh and everything so light. as big as it was, it wasn’t heavy at all to eat. it was pretty darn heavy in weight mind you! tom did a good job of eating half of it that day and almost another quarter the next morning. how many calories do you reckon that is? =P #fattygilly
the giant cro and service was outstanding that we just had to blog about it on twitter, tumblr, facebook and instagram!!! mY sister emily was lucky enough to finish it off for us, tom wasn’t too happy about that but he wasn’t about to take it back with him to leeds on the megabus. oh well, one’s loss is another’s gain =P
check them out at boxpark in shoreditch. they do normal sized cros and they close up shop when they sell out that day. trust me, they can sell out fast!
mY rating –
price: from £2pp (individual cros). i won’t tell you how much a giant one is because i don’t want tom finding out ha.
happiness: ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺
