Get the recipe for these funfetti birthday croissants via Claire of The Kitchy Kitchen

Hello readers, it’s Claire again from The Kitchy Kitchen. Croissants are a breakfast staple and already delicious on their own, but after being so inspired by Union Fare’s whimsical creations, I couldn’t help myself in creating a batch of my own. From a celebratory birthday breakfast in bed to whipping up these colorful confections just because, these birthday cake croissants are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. They’re surprisingly simple to master, and can be made with store-bought dough if you’re in a rush. I can’t wait to try this with other flavors, like green tea or maybe espresso. Enjoy!

3. Roll up the triangle into a croissant and place back in the fridge to chill.
