Hi folks. Alex here. For this month’s baking challenge, I wanted to choose something, well, challenging. These bakers were on TV, you know. I think lamination is the hardest thing to achieve well in a home kitchen. I left the challenge open ended otherwise to enable a little creativity–and did my friends deliver. Please take look at their photos and recipes below, and try them out yourself at home–just be sure to use good butter!

I can just smell all the butter. And feel it in my waistline.
