This week Secret Lives of the Super Rich reveals the most expensive doughnut in the world.

The doughnut is called the Golden Crystal Ube and just one of these babies will set you back a cool $100…Doh, you can Homer say! But wait, the dough and the icing are made with a good helping of Cristal champagne, itself $200 a bottle.

Next up the doughnuts are cooked to perfection before being airbrushed with a coating of edible 24K gold! Not content with that level of bling, even more gold leaf is added to the top by hand.

In total it takes more than two hours to create one of these pricey doughnuts.
