An Australian bakery is preparing to launch a Pina Colada croissant inspired by the iconic Puerto Rican pineapple cocktail.
It’s the latest creation from Banksia Bakehouse, a boutique cafe in Sydney CBD known for its rotating monthly menu of experimental desserts.
In September the specials were croissants stuffed with lemon meringue and Biscoff custard cream, while the current offerings for October are chocolate hazelnut and strawberry rose.
November’s special will be the pina colada, which consists of buttery pastry stuffed with chunks of pineapple and creamy pineapple curd.
