If you follow me on twitter you may have seen me talking about a new page I have set up on my blog. 2013 Must Do List is a list of challenges I have set myself and will be adding to over the year. Croissants have been at the top of my list for a while now and as 2013 rolled around I realised I had exhausted all of my excuses. Stickybeaks was closed for the first 2 weeks in January so I decided to use this my advantage and get my 2013 list off to a good start.

After doing a bunch of research I decided to try out the Bourke Street bakery recipe as it didn't require a starter (sadly my sourdough starter died a while ago and I haven't had a chance to make a new one). It was really enjoyable and my freezer is now fully stocked with pastries. I also made a last minute decision to fill half with an almond paste which I was very grateful for as almond croissants are by far my favourite. I now look forward to making some again and experimenting with other flavours, I would love to try out some savoury varieties.

If you would like to join in with setting yourself some challenges for 2013 comment below and I'll link over to you.


  1. I'm definitely up for joining in the challenges and am always more than happy to taste test yours! The croissants were a huuugge success! x

  2. A list of challenges for the year is such a good idea! I might have to give this some thought ... And the croissants look fab. How lovely to have a freezer full of them.

  3. Count me in, I have a million things I've been meaning to try : )
