    I mean... when you come across this video two years later and are super surprised how no one has mentioned the beautiful aesthetics of color coordination in this video: blue water bottle, blue Kitchenaid and Chris's blue shirt in the background... :) beautiful!

            Yup can tell she's a pastry chef when she's handling the dough... She looks good doing everything thought... And stop the hate everyone makes these differently. Just because it's different doesn't make it wrong

                    Sometimes people just want a cinnamon roll with icing - I dont want the sophisticated looks boring.

                              Looks good but the worst breakfast ever, it's all sugar/ carbohydrates. Start your day with a good filled omelet, onions, bacon, cheese and some herbs maybe some sambal if you like spicey, you can put it on toast or have a bit of salad with it, better for you and much more delicious then these sugar bombs who sure taste good but not as breakfast like a already mentioned.

                                  I just can’t stand background music while people are talking.. it’s so distracting.

                                      The offset spatula is Claire's utensil of choice. I haven't seen a video where she hasn't used one!

                                                  Place cut side up is confusing me. The way she cut them.... both sides are the 'cut' side

                                                        I laughed at the “place cut side up” instruction.
