Chocolate croissants

I'm supposed to be working on a commission for a couple of 3 tiered stands full of the dreaded cupcakes & to be quite honest, it doesn't take too much for me to get sidetracked from the numbingly boring cupcake making! As I had the clay mixed & the pastel colours already on my workbench, I went off on a tangent (nothing new there!!) & decided that I fancied making some chocolate croissants...I think possibly because at that moment I had a craving for a "real" croissant...chocolate or not. Then I had to tempt myself even more by making one of the croissants with melting chocolate oozing out of it...that was IT...to hell with the miniature, inedible versions...guess what I had for a snack! Yes....a delicious buttery croissant, heatted up & spread with yet more butter & then Nutella.....sheer heaven! My excuse is that it has given me the energy to face thousands more of those cupcakes! :-))
