A bakery in Kyiv, Ukraine has developed a pastry that’s inspired by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s hair.

Zavertailo Cafe bakery, who announced the launch of their new product on Instagram, said they were honouring Britain for their support for Ukraine against Russia.

The bakery wrote: “Boris Johnson is not just a prime minister but is also now a croissant.

“This is dedicated to our British friends in tribute for their support in the war against Russia.”

The ice cream and meringue is meant to reflect Johnson’s signature messy, long blond hair.

Certainly a favourite amongst customers, the ‘Boris Johnson’ was sold out soon after its launch.

Illia, the cashier from Zavertailo Cafe bakery, told the Telegraph: “You can wait 30 minutes for the next batch, but if you’re really hungry we can serve you the ‘lend-lease’ burger.”

Previously speaking about the UK’s support for Ukraine, Johnson said in a statement: “The UK and others [will] supply the equipment, the technology, the knowhow, the intelligence, so that Ukraine will never be invaded again.

“So Ukraine is so fortified and protected – so that Ukraine can never be bullied again. Never be blackmailed again. Never be threatened in the same way again.”

How to make the Boris Johnson pastry

Zavertailo Cafe bakery’s delicacy certainly looks tasty with its pastry base and toppings of vanilla ice cream and meringue.

Whilst we don’t have the exact recipe of Zavertailo Cafe bakery’s Boris Johnson pastry, we’ve collected a few guides that could help you make one of your own.

First, you need to make the pastry, which you can do by following the steps on BBC Good Food.

Now after the pastry has been made, you could just scoop ready-made ice cream and a meringue on top.

However, if you’re feeling adventurous and would like to make the toppings from scratch, then you can follow Good Housekeeping‘s ultimate vanilla ice cream and the Basic meringue recipe on delicious.

Once the topics have been made, they can be placed on top of the pastry.
