Victoria Beckham shocked and delighted the world when she tweeted a picture of "Cronuts" before her spring 2014 show. False. They were not Cronuts™. Defender of the Cronut™ name and general sassmonger Dominique Ansel called the slip out on twitter, saying, "Who tricked @victoriabeckham into thinking those knockoffs were the real Cronut™? An intern who overslept and didn't wait in line? Hope not." [Racked NY]
