Best Bites Winner: Destination Donuts
Over 300 guests gathered last night at Strongwater to celebrate the most amazing bakeries and dessert-makers in Columbus at our Best Bites: Sweet Treats event. Fifteen local bake shops participated in the event and served sweets ranging from caramels to whoopie pies to baklava and more.
Each guest was provided a token to vote for their favorite dessert of the night, and after tallying up the results today, we’re pleased to announce that Destination Donuts took the crown as the Best Bite of the night with their “Fasnachts”. Fasnachts are a donut of German origin, traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday (also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, which was yesterday if you didn’t know!). The Fasnachts were served with powdered sugar, a chocolate ganache and strawberry preserves.
The treat was a one-night-only creation just for the event, but you can find many other Destination Donut treats popping up at The North Market, Hills Market, The Market Italian Village, Luck Bros Coffee and other locations around town.
The Top Three fan favorite treats of the night included:
- 1st Place: The Fasnacht from Destination Donuts
- 2nd Place: The Sweet Kolaches from Kolache Republic
- 3rd Place: The Maple Bourbon Pecan Mini Pie from Dough Mama
The Best Bites: Sweet Treats event also raised a total of $600 for the Children’s Hunger Alliance in the process. Thanks again to all of our participants, sponsors, attendees and volunteers! And stay tuned for more information on the next Best Bites event!
