Baking Day

Yesterday, I had a great afternoon learning how to make Danish pastries, Chelsea buns, iced buns and croissants at the Cinnamon Square 

We made two lots of dough one of which we used to make Chelsea and iced buns and the other, which we laminated, to make the croissants and Danish pastries. Here is the process in pictures.
The basic dough which you then must laminate with butter.
We did four half turns including one in which we added the sheet of butter

Fold in butter then make three more half turns 

Roll, fold  and rest between turns 

Prepped ready to go into the oven

  1. Wow. You must be very proud of yourself. They look beautiful and delicious.

    1. Yes I was just a little bit pleased with myself. Sadly they didn't last long but everyone enjoyed them. It was great fun learning how to make them too and always good to acquire new skills

  2. Oh my word I'm now so hungry, your goods look so delicious.. Px
