Rose-shaped donuts are Instagram's latest craze

First, there was the cronut, and now there's this.

Rose-shaped donuts have bloomed at the Doughnut Plant in New York City. The "doughflowers" look like roses and come in several glazes: rose (of course), strawberry and Italian blood orange.

According to the New York Times, owner Mark Isreal made them just in time for Mother's Day -- but will be sold indefinitely for $5 a piece.

It's already taken Instagram by storm:
