Glazed and Confuzed Tahoe Donut

With the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament taking over Tahoe’s South Shore this weekend, one local donut business is taking advantage of the added spotlight by serving up golf-themed treats.

Glazed and Confuzed Tahoe Donut, which delivers donuts for free in the South Shore area, will be selling special donuts named after golf-centric movies through the weekend and possibly into Monday.

One of those limited-offer specials, named the “Happy Gilmore,” was shared on social media Thursday. The raised donut comes covered with vanilla icing, grass green coconut and a graham cracker “sand trap” crust. The tasty looking treat is topped with a lemon filled donut hole meant to resemble a golf ball.

Mara Cavallaro, half of the duo behind Glazed and Confuzed and the main donut creator, will likely come up with several more creatively named donuts — “The CaddyShack” is one that’s being considered — before the weekend starts, said Anthony Cavallaro the other half of the Glazed and Confuzed duo.

“It’s all fun titles or based on movies … a play on words,” Anthony told the Tribune. “That’s kind of the whole fun, creative gist of what we’re doing.”
