In my humble opinion, good cooking (and eating) is all about taste-good, look-good, smell-good food. Doesn't matter if its some noveau flavored foam food, or a hearty down-to-earth classic. And though we love our classics, sometimes we do want something new. Something that will make us pause after a first bite and wonder - that's good, but what is it? Then there are the foods we dub obnoxiously good. And these are obnoxiously good donuts. Really, feast your eyes on these...

Nope, your eyes have not failed you - it's a coffee cupcake, topped with coffee creme, and then topped with a sprinkled and frosted cake donut.

  This Mexican Hot Chocolate Donut outdoes itself with a roasted marshmallow topping. It's like someone said, "Forget glaze, we'll just slather marshmallows on and torch it." We say, good call.

  Did you know that donuts could be made from potatoes? Well, they can - and they're topped with Rosewater icing too. Not all obnoxious donuts are a hot-mess, as these shmancy varietals prove.

This one makes the count because this isn't just a sugary donut hole, it is sugary donut hole soaked in sugar syrup. Donuts, meet Gulab Jamun
