The New York inventor of the cronut—the flaky, butter-laminated love child of a croissant and a doughnut—trademarked his creation. Using its name (or anything that rhymes with its name) will earn you a cease and desist letter. So Seattle bakers brave enough to riff on this labor-intensive treat have come up with their own monikers.
