Bite Size Cinnamon Rolls with a Maple Syrup Glaze

  • 1 Packet Croissant dough
  • 1-2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Light Brown Sugar
  • Melted tbsp Butter
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1tsp Milk
  • 3-4 tbsp Icing Sugar
  1. Pinch dough back together along seams.
  2. Re-roll lightly.
  3. Brush with melted butter.
  4. Sprinkle desired cinnamon.
  5. Then sprinkle the two types of sugar.
  6. Roll into sausages of desired size and slice to desired width (remembering the dough will enlarge and puff up during cooking).
  7. Butter cupcake tray and fill with sliced wheels.
  8. Bake for 10 mins (watch like a hawk they can over cook very quickly and sugar will start to burn). 
  9. Remove from tray and allow to cool.
  10. Mix the maple syrup, milk and icing sugar together and then spoon over the top on a serving plate. 
This really is a super easy recipe, that is really quick and yummy. Great for when you have a last minute bake day panic. 
This recipe was adapted from a wonderful one by Iowa Girl Eats.

A little Rue Du Mail in my Life

Photos by Pete Navey

This season, during Paris Fashion Week, my friend Candice Lake asked me if I would like to go and play dress up at Rue Du Mail.  That was like asking a child if it would like some sweeties.  Obviously I wanted to! So Pete and me trotted across Paris to the land of beautiful clothes. 
I hadn't ever touched or tried on Rue Du Mail but it exceeded all my expectations. Everything at Rue Du Mail was beautiful.  The quality of fabrics and cuts was next to none.  It's impossible not to feel exquisitely expensive in their clothes. If they stock in a store near you, just go and try something on, even if its out of you budget I guarantee you will leave working out how to can work overtime to afford it.  Even better the beautiful shoes that were made for the collection by Christian Louboutin will be available in Louboutin stores.  I am not really a strappy sandal person, but I fell in love with them. 
All in all it was a wonderful visit.  A big thank you to Candice and Rue Du Mail for having me.
