Are Galaxy Desserts The Next Food Trend?

From birthday cake croissants to luxury eclairs, pastry chefs seem to be at the forefront of new food trends. And from the looks of chefs' Instagrams, the next big thing just may be outer space-themed desserts, Buzzfeed observes. The art on these treats will probably bring out your inner child. Except instead of depicting animals and other earthly themes found in kids' snacks, they encompass the whole solar system. Bo's Kitchen calls these "galaxy donuts."

came up with a variation on the same theme: a Cosmic Vegan Donut.
