From top chefs to guerilla bakers, dressing up donuts is a slam dunk

Tell cupcakes they need to jump back.

There's a new old-school treat that's got some Minnesota momentum behind it. Some people may deny that donuts (or doughnuts, for that matter) are worth reconsidering. But we can see right through them.

The Star Tribune reports there's a wave of donut shops and bakeries with owner-operators who are obsessed with creativity. Their gallery of favorites ranges from glazed goodies that have been going strong for 50 years to cheesecake-filled, cherry-topped creations from young chefs.

Food critic Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl offered a rundown of some her favorite Twin Cities donut spots last year. And WCCO featured its top five the previous summer.

But to make their comeback complete, don't donuts need something that makes them feel edgy? Maybe a little mysterious or dangerous? Consider it done. The Minnesota Daily tells us a guerilla baker known as Dirty Donuts is back in action after being temporarily sidetracked by a house fire.

Her homemade treats sometimes pop up at Twin Cities hip hop shows with just an hour or two of advance notice among those who follow her on Twitter.
