Incarcerated Melburnians beg an iconic bakery to relaunch an experimental pastry hailed as a “mighty genius.”
The famed Lune Croissanterie in Fitzroy, 1.6 miles north of the CBD, released a limited-edition carrot cake croissant in early April.
But the fusion pastry filled with a soft, spiced sponge and rich vanilla cream disappeared from the menu in May, prompting fans on social media to beg for its return.
“Please bring this back, I have NOT stopped thinking about how damn incredible it has been since I got it,” wrote one particularly passionate customer.

“I’ve actually told everyone in my life, PLEASE you mighty geniuses.”
Others said they “can’t believe” they missed the flavor combination and called for it to be reinstated to bring some cheer to the beleaguered city gripped by its fourth lockdown in 14 months.
The bakery hasn’t responded to the calls yet, but locals can head to its sister store, Moon, 250 yards down the street for an equally decadent treat.

Hundreds of masked foodies queue for up to an hour to get their hands on “crullers,” an upscale cousin to the fried donut popular in the US and Canada.
The braided pastries are the only item on the menu at Moon, the newly opened sibling of confectioner Kate Reid’s iconic Lune.
The semi-permanent pop-up serves six flavors — vanilla icing, cappuccino, dark chocolate, raspberry and passion fruit and cinnamon sugar with a hint of ground cardamom — for $5.50 each.
Since opening less than a five-minute walk from Lune on May 28, Moon has played host to queues of customers making their way through the full length of Rose Street from 7:30am on Thursdays and Fridays and 8:30am on Saturdays and Sundays. .

Since the bakery served its first customer twelve days ago, fans have been spouting enthusiastic posts about the pastries.
‘Went to the moon today, luckily it was within my 10 km radius. All I can say is it was worth the hour’s wait,” one woman wrote.
Another added: ‘Never thought I’d be in line for more than an hour, but f**k, it’s worth it.’
