The baker’s name is Christian Escribá and he has his shop in Barcelona. Among the characteristics that make his doughnut unique are that, although the sweet dough is the same, the filling is not cream, but orange marmalade and truffle. Also, on top there is no candied fruit as decoration, but ‘peta zetas’ bathed in edible gold.
And there’s more: the other surprises have to do with Bitcoin.
On his Instagram account, with more than 82 thousand followers, the pastry chef wrote:
“Can you imagine paying for a roscón with cryptocurrencies? It seems impossible, right? Well, in Escribà you know that we love challenges… so, we bring you the CRYPTO TORTELL offering you the possibility to buy the traditional “roscón de Reyes” with bitcoins.

It is a decentralized digital currency that enables users to make trustless peer-to-peer transactions. to the Moon!”
