First it was rainbow bagels, then it was rainbow cake followed by rainbow shakes, and now there’s a new trend in town: the rainbow croissant.

People of the world, prepare yourselves because your Instagram feed is about to explode. Big time.

So who started the new craze? You can thank Executive Pastry Chef Sarah Barber for the extremely pretty, and extremely colourful new treats. For the last couple of months, Barber has been busy in the kitchen playing with all sorts of colours and doughs and has finally revealed her magical creations to the world in the most trend-setting way imaginable: Instagram.

You’ll be able to grab and ‘gram one for yourself at London’s swanky Hotel Café Royal. The catch is you’ll have to go to the posh gaff at breakfast time to nab one, as they feature on the brekkie menu only.

Flavours? The wonderfully vibrant pastries of absolute joy are incredibly fruity and are infused with mango, passion fruit, amarena cherry and pistachio, lovely.
