EDIBLE BREADABLE: ULTIMATE BAKES & TREATS
What ho folks! We've been up to our crazy kitchen antics again, this time getting busy with the bread dough. Why is it that bread and dough are euphamisms for money? wouldn't it be nice if we could all get our finances to expand in the oven, or I guess that's what they call cooking the books! LOL. Anyway, I digress, so we decided it was about time for some bread sculpture, the only type of edible art I had done before, years ago mind. I chose the I-Saw outline and I-Saw Bud outline that appear in our Vine print and which I thought would lend themselves particularly well to the medium. I was right and pretty chuffed with the results, although they probabaly looked better before baking, as I had the oven too hot and they got a bit overdone. Used a ready made breadmix, which was Parmesan & Sundried Tomato flavour and was reet tasty like! Serving sugestion, with a lovely homemade Pea, Lettuce and Mint Soup, as shown. Definately be coming back to the bread in the near future, it worked well with my letter style and next time I might try making the dough from scratch, so here's to making some dough sometime soon, in more ways than one!.
