Often, when I’m alone with my thoughts, I pray very hard for my food invention dreams to come to fruition. Fried macaroni balls, battered snickers and Hogwarts butter “beer” are just a few of the random treasures London has to offer. To my excitement, an actual dream of mine came true, when I found out that the marriage of my two favourite baked goods actually existed. Yes, in real life! Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Cronut®! Half croissants and half doughnut, you no longer have to choose between the two. Today, let’s take a trip to the birthplace of this superhero baked good as we jump with excitement in Fitzrovia, to gorge on a thing of beauty.
