I was racing through Melbourne for some reason and took a short cut through Melbourne Central shopping mall. Well, it looked like it might be a short cut, but I think it added about 30 minutes to my trip.

As I flashed past Rustica cafe I did a double take.

In the window were some rather appealing looking doughnuts and cronuts.

They were big and colourful and inviting. I’m sure one of them actually looked at me and said, “Go on, buy me. I’m sweet and tasty. You won’t regret it, really.”

But using some super-human willpower, I resisted.

I couldn’t eat anything else, and at that point, any more would have been pure gluttony.

So, sadly, I passed up on the chance to have one of these delights from Rustica.
