Along with their retro shop design and generously stuffed pastries, Glam Doll Donuts is also known for creating distinctive star-shaped doughnuts replicating the exterior of First Avenue. These special treats are often delivered backstage for artists performing at the iconic Minneapolis venue, doubling as advertising for the four-year-old brand when the artists inevitably share snaps of the delicacies. In honor of National Doughnut Day, here are some examples of musicians cheesing it up with their personalized Glam Doll donuts.
