There will be more post-Summit posts (with lots of photos!) to come, but first, a few thanks, and then the winner!
Thank you to the whole team here at Blogging.LA who helped put together a fabulous Donut Summit, and also to our friends and family who helped out at the event as honorary Donut Marshalls!
Thank you to everyone who came and made the event a HUGE success. We had about 55 entries in total, from donut shops all around LA county, and we want to thank everyone who came and contributed to the donut feast. YOU made this event awesome!
Thank you to Intelligentsia, our coffee sponsor, for providing delicious iced coffee to temper the sugar shock of SO MANY DONUTS.
