Huge, Flaky and Buttery

1/30/20 National Croissant Day

How did you celebrate National Croissant Day? Last year I had to resort to Starbucks for my pastry fix because I didn’t plan the day well. I wasn’t going to make that mistake again. This time, Nilda and I met at Honore Bakery, where the croissants are available both savory and sweet. I opted for a classic croissant with raspberry jam.

You know me – I rarely get around to sketching my food because I’m more likely to devour it immediately. Obviously, on this special day, I restrained myself long enough to sketch it. Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph it before I ripped it apart. 

The last time I was at Honore, the chocolate cake I sketched was decorated with a marzipan bee. I didn’t understand the significance of the bee until I picked up Honore’s card and saw that the bee is part of the bakery’s logo.

Mmmm.... yes, it was as good as it looks.


  1. I am still dreaming about croissants since I saw this sketch on FB. The French bakery is still calling me.

    1. I've never refused a croissant that called to me! ;-)
