Baker's Donuts is a bakery in Sacramento, California. Susie and Randy Hem, the owners, call their latest treat "ice glazers." It's an adaptation of a simple treat that she used to make for her children on hot summer days: ice cream wrapped in ordinary bread. This can be only improved by replacing the bread with donut dough.
Every day, the Rems make eight dozen glazed donuts for ice glazers and inject them with ice cream when customers buy them. They often use exotic flavors to entice interest. Sactown magazine reports:
The unique ice cream flavors come from Pittsburg-based Magnolia Tropical Ice Cream, which uses California milk and fresh fruit in their recipes.
“We have an Asian-American background, and we used to eat [Magnolia ice cream] when we were younger,” Douglas Hem says. “A lot of Asian-Americans and Filipinos love that brand, because it’s very rich and creamy and not watered-down.”
The shop has also fulfilled customers' requests for other wild and crazy spins on the ice glazers, like red velvet doughnuts stuffed with vanilla ice cream, ice cream-filled cronuts topped with Trader Joe’s cookie butter, or tropical-flavored ice glazers sprinkled with Fruity Pebbles cereal.
