Doughbot competes on Cooking Channel tonight

By Janelle Bitker

Catch Sacramento's most creative donut-wizards tonight on Food Network Canada's "Donut Showdown," the fried dough equivalent to "Cupcake Wars."

While Bryan Widener and Dannah O'Donnell of Doughbot Donuts can't reveal what'll happen tonight, keep in mind that the episode was shown in Canada back in April. So if you really wanted to know, you could find a spoiler.

Widener and O'Donnell admitted it was fun, though.

"It was a chance to do what we do every day in a competitive setting," O'Donnell said.

And Widener: "It was really cool to be selected to do this, especially with all these other big shops in big cities like New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles."

And they may or may not have won $10,000.

Competitors are Seattle's Top Hot Doughnuts and Salt Lake City's Gimme Sugar Catering in tonight's camping-themed episode - the second in the brand-new series - and it airs at 7 p.m. on The Cooking Channel, channel 203 on Comcast and 232 in DirecTV in HD.

Doughbot Donuts: 2226 10th St, Sacramento. Open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
