Once lunch was complete, the women took to Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, just a few steps away, to enjoy a private dessert party amidst the jaw-dropping shoe displays at the iconic department store. In honor of the occasion, Donut Underground debuted its newest gourmet flavor with a special presentation to event host Angela Birdman and the ladies in attendance.

The ornate treat is the brand’s newest gourmet flavor, and it’s just as delicious as it is beautiful. It’s crafted with sweet purple yam flour, filled and topped with a dark chocolate mousse and infused with orange and Hennessy Cognac before being dusted in gold and garnished with an orange twist.This limited-edition donut can be found at the brand’s sweet pop-up called “Enter Through the Donut Shop” at the Rudolf Budja Gallery in Miami Beach.
