Very even colour to them, so probably baked rather than deep-fried (no tell-tale pale midriff). Shaping the rose is not hard, just overlapping strips of dough--see the very many apple rose tart recipes that were also an Instagram craze--but it would fall apart during deep-frying, so, again, baking is probably the route to take.

I was really hoping to see the technique explained - any chance someone can figure out how to create the rose shape and share it with your readers? Or did I simply miss the link?

You didn't miss anything—it's definitely not in there! But if Isreal's down to share his secrets (or, you know, one of our very skilled bakers can figure it out) we'll certainly share it.

I'm with you - Doughnut Plant doughnuts are a bit too rich for me (not too mention that my allegiance stands by Dough doughnuts). But for sure this will become a trend, at least on Instagram. Doughnut roses are the new avocado roses are the new cloud eggs?
