What do cupcakes, whoopie pies, and cake pops all have in common? Not only are they trendy, cute, sweet, and delicious, they are also versatile. All of these individually-sized desserts come in a variety of flavors. Doughnuts should be no different. I know, we're changing gears here from dessert to breakfast, but why not? They're sweet, too. They can be fruity or chocolaty. Light and flaky or deep and rich. Atlanta's Sublime Doughnuts, conveniently located near Georgia Tech off of Tenth Street, has captured this versatility. See for yourself:

One of their signature doughnuts is the Atown Cream. It's a Boston Cream doughnut in the shape of the letter A. In fact, you can custom order doughnuts in the shape of any letter. How cute would it be to serve monogram doughnuts as wedding favors? Or to get a birthday cake that's not really cake at all, but instead doughnuts that spell out "Happy Birthday?"
I found that each doughnut was light and fluffy, but packed with more flavor than your average doughnut. More flavor and less sugar is always a good thing. Among the dozen we chose, the Raspberry Filled Heart was my favorite when it came to appearance:
...and the Fresh Strawberry N Cream was my favorite when it came to flavor:
They weren't kidding when they said "fresh!" What about you? Have you found any hole-in-the-wall doughnut shops in your neck of the woods?
