Donuts in shapes other than toroid, sphereoid, bar, or fritter

Sure, we all love the traditional donut shapes. We need donuts in the shapes of various platonic solids. Tetrahedron, dodecahedron, etc.. Or perhaps 3d surfaces like cones and catenoids. Maybe hypersurfaces too!

       Use the shape to indicate the filling. I hate it when I want Boston cream and suddenly bite into slimy jelly.

       This is a great idea! As kbecker said, you could use the different shapes to distinguish the flavor and a cube shape would be a cool shape for a piece of food.

       Who thought of toroid shape anyway? How 'bout a pretzel shape for my donut too, or a yummy dodecahedron. In fact the name dodecahedron sounds scrumptious. +

       mmm.... donuts!

       Someone's going to ask what shape a custard-filled doughnut would be. That someone might as well be me.

       This could be extended to toast and other baked bread products. I propose making bread in the shape of mobius strips, which are one sided. No longer would we wonder why buttered toast always lands buttered side down.

       Most of the shapes you've suggested are all the same shape anyway.

       I have yet to see a 2D doughnut [deathninja]. Are they a diet thing?

       Not to be confused with 2rd

       Donuts are shaped the way they are because if they weren't, they wouldn't cook through in the midle.

       And here I am eating toroidal donuts like a sucker.

       what about microwavable dounuts? If we laced them with ice, then we could heat them from frozen using a microwave? (theoretically, I'm not a specialist in the field of doughnut physics... oh... I had a strange thought then... I could invent doughnut physics... or doughnubiosytological physics... I have WAYYY to much free time)   

       >> oh yeah... and we wouldn't need a vacuole in the centre

       yeah, but do any of the have a measure of 'Scrumptiousness' (Scr), or (Ty) Tasty=9.1235417632415 Scu (the metric IS version)

       [+] I perfectly love this idea! I'm thinking it must have lost its buns in the Great Donut Crash of '04.

       Klein Bottle donuts … infinitley sugary.
