Doughnut Birthday: The Usual Remixed

The maple-bacon bar (yes, that's real bacon) is a favorite so we made sure to have plenty on hand.
This past summer house guests introduced the notion of doughnuts for birthday sweets and since then there has been no turning back.

Interesting in that when the guests bought from Voodoo Doughnuts the above kid went thermonuclear because his favorite shop had been Sesame Doughnuts. After seeing these over-produced wonders he knew where the bacon lay and changed his mind.

As with all good parties there was the hint of scandal. One of the doughnuts was supposed to represent a voodoo doll with a pin (pretzel) stuck into the heart. Unfortunately the pin and heart accurately resembled male genitalia, causing a party goer to remark, "Oh, a boy doughnut!" This doughnut can be seen in the foreground of the above picture.

I figure this is what we pay for when we go to Voodoo Doughnuts -- a terminally hip establishment now going mainstream -- as I understand how difficult it is for a doughnut shop to maintain its place in edgy subculture.

Despite the raised eyebrows, a great night of celebration ensued.
