This town gets a lots of visitors around Mardi Gras. This one might just be the sweetest. 

Notable Alexandria bakery Textbook Boulangerie Patisserie is releasing a limited-edition version of their hugely popular rainbow croissant just in time to celebrate the biggest, most colourful party on Sydney's calendar. This year, they're upping the ante with a new Golden Gaytime flavour: think flaky pastry filled with rainbow chocolate nibs and lashings of caramel, smushed together with a layer of rich cream and toffee nuggets. 

Crafted by veteran pastry chef John Ralley, Textbook's croissants have gained something of a cult following across Sydney, so rest assured it isn't just some gimmick. These guys are serious pastry aficionados, and it shows. We'll take our pride buttery, flaky and filled with chantilly cream, thanks. 

You can get your hands on one of these bad boys all weekend long from Friday, February 28 through Sunday, March 1 (until they sell out).
