When we are out and about, I can often spot what triggers C to sing a particular song - often something on an advertising hoarding is enough to act as a subconscious prompt to him. These Danish pastries were the result of a poster ad on a bus prompting me. I'm afraid I can't even remember the working - it includes Best, Danish and Carlsberg. Far from making me want to go out and buy Carlsberg, it made me hanker after a good Danish pastry - and the easiest answer to that was to make my own. The pinwheels are maple and pecan, the swirls are raisin and spice.
