It all started when a Sydney-based bakery decided to create something spectacular for the 2016 Vivid Festival - one of the biggest light festivals in Sydney. Chris Thé, owner of the Blackstar Pastry wanted to come up with a dish that people would easily associate with the popular light festival, according to their official website. It took the bakery several months to perfect the dish which they eventually called ‘Glonut’.
The glowing donut has joined the category of glowing galaxy-inspired foods like Dairy Queen's galaxy cake and Disney’s glow in the dark cotton candy.
