Pastry chef Thiago Silva will soon offer this delightful treat at the Manhattan restaurant Union Fare, where he runs the bakery. He's the same chef to bring us fresh-baked cookie buckets and cinnamon-roll-stuffed donuts at New York's Catch Restaurant.
To find out if it's as delicious as it sounds, Cheat Day Eats's Jessica Hirsch gave one a try. “I was kinda surprised," she told Food Beast, saying it wasn't as sweet as she expected. "He mixed the sprinkles into the batter, which [Thiago] says [he[ has never seen anyone else do." In the video below, she takes it apart, revealing the funfetti in all its glory.
The #BirthdayCakeCroissant is Chef Thiago’s (@chef_thiago) latest innovation. The croissant is being dished out of the Union Fare Restaurant (@unionfare) in NYC where he’s running the bakery and channelling all the desserts. In this video, we see our main gal Jess (@CheatDayEats) busting it wide open. “He’s a genius,” Jessica tells us. It’s not extremely sweet, “I was kinda surprised. He mixed the sprinkles into the batter, which [Thiago] says has never seen anyone else do."
