Kronuts in Pembroke Pines at Kosher Master Cake Bakery

Combining two popular foods is nothing new: ice cream cake, corn dogs, even Hot Pockets.

However, on May 10 of this year, the newest combo food fad took the bakery industry by storm. Created by Dominique Ansel at his namesake bakery in New York, the Cronut is a half-croissant, half-donut, obviously, thrown in a deep-fryer.

This fried treat of buttery, sugary deliciousness became so popular that lines formed around the block of the Dominique Ansel Bakery just to score the chance of picking one up.

Since then, bakeries and pastry chefs all across the world have spawned off their own versions of the hybrid dessert. And we just happened to find them hiding out in Pembroke Pines' newly opened kosher Master Cake Bakery.

European-trained, Israeli-born pastry chef Mickey Grunbeger opened the kosher bakery about a month ago. After hearing about the long lines and crazy waits for Ansel's half-breed pastries, he decided to whip up a batch himself.

Are you guys actually commenting about TM infringement? Who really cares. The intentions were to report of a local pastry/bakery owner trying to bring more business to his new shop.  You can't even blog without a lawyer these days. Lighten up folks.

Cronuts and Kronuts are trademarked names.  Do you have a good lawyer? (better just make up a new name)

UPDATE, AUGUST 26: Apparently pastry chef Dominique Ansel, who just landed a sweet book deal, isn’t happy about the viral spread of his creation to other cities. Fillmore Bakeshop reported this morning that lawyers asked the boutique bakery to stop using the name “Kronuts” for its Saturday morning special. Here’s what the bakery posted on its Facebook page:

“So we guess this is 2013′s East Coast-West Coast battle? We have officially been asked to no longer use the name “Kronut.” So please take note: from now on, the fried delight formally known as the “Kronut” shall henceforth be referred to as the “SFonut” by we here at the Fillmore Bakeshop (or at least until we get another letter from someone’s lawyer). And to think only a few weeks ago so few even knew we existed!!”

@conchchowder @Keith Wright The article clearly states that the baker's version is called a "dossant". No trademark infringement here!

@lovesweetfoodThe WRITER of the article, Sara Ventiera, wrote "

The lawyers are dealing with this as we speak.
