The most expensive doughnut in the world is covered in 24-karat gold

The priciest doughnut on the planet is filled with champagne and topped with 24-karat gold.

It's called the Golden Cristal Ube, and a dozen will set you back $1,200.

The world's most most expensive doughnut is featured in an upcoming episode of CNBC's "Secret Lives of the Super Rich."

Bjorn DelaCruz, chef of the Manila Social Club in Miami, is the culinary master behind the posh pastries.

The doughnut is made with ube, a "naturally purple sweet yam found in the Philippines," according to the Manila Social Club's website.

Both the dough and the icing have a generous dose of Cristal champagne, which retails for around $200 per bottle.

The doughnuts are also airbrushed with a gleaming coat of 24-karat gold and topped off with meticulously placed gold leaf, in a process that takes DelaCruz nearly two hours to execute.

Once complete, the costly confections require special transportation. Instead of delivery trucks, the doughnuts are driven via Rolls-Royce.

These golden goodies are the ultimate indulgence for hungry customers who are rolling in, well, dough.

"A lot of people, when they eat this doughnut, say 'Oh, that's rich,'" Delacruz tells "Secret Lives of the Super Rich." "Usually I tell them, 'No, it's wealthy.'"
