Plain, undecorated donuts are great. Fantastic, even. I don’t need a donut to look fancy when I shove it in my mouth. That said, a little icing can go a long way and could sway me towards buying one donut over the other, and if I ever spotted donuts like the ones Timmy Hanno posts on his Instagram feed, I’d be purchasing them by the dozen. I mean, he knows how to make a facehugger from Alien look delicious.
Hanno, a.k.a. archiehemmingway, made the raspberry fritter for his girlfriend because as he says, “She loves Sigourney Weaver more than me I’m pretty sure.” I can’t blame her for those feelings. This isn’t the first Alien-themed donut he’s made for her either. Get a load of this fully grown Xenomorph raspberry-filled donut:
I’ve never really wanted a facehugger or Xenomorph in my mouth before, but there’s a first time for everything.
The Illinois-based baker doesn’t limit his creations to the world of Alien. His donut decorating skills have been inspired by Game of Thrones (White Walkers aren’t as terrifying when they’re desserts), Star Wars, Super Mario, and much more. You can see more examples of his work in the gallery below and follow him on Instagram. It will make you constantly crave donuts, but it’s worth it. Plus, I already sort of crave donuts regularly.
If you could devour the pop culture donut of your dreams, what would you choose? Head to the comments and let me know.
