The croissant cube is the brainchild of Swedish baker Bedros Kabranian, a member of the Swedish national pastry team. The creative pastry chef wanted to give a new shape to the iconic French breakfast bread, without imagining for a moment the commotion he was going to provoke on Instagram between purists and enthusiasts.

But how did Bedros Kabranian succeed in giving his croissant a square shape?
"This croissant cube comes from a mold I found in China, I imported it and the ideas started to germinate ... All I had to do was adjust the yeast before fermentation to handle the shaping process."
