25d. Fit of temper? Lash out! Bad mood? Shout!(7) t?u?p?t.

18a. The writer in Paris to get angry. one involved in tale of woe.(8) ?e?e?i?d.

I think the 1st 2 are croissant and trumpet but can't see why.

Thanks for that.
I still don't really understand the wordplay for the 1st two though.

1d.
Hamper=impede/thwart=cross. Containing i (one)=croiss+ant (worker). Croiss is on the head of ant because it's a down clue.

Still thinking about the other one.
