Well after seeing the cutest photo of bunny breads (thanks Michelle!!) I just couldn't make boring rolls for Easter this year... so once the dough was all made, I cut a small piece off and formed a practice baby bunny Sat. night. (suggested by Eliza---she knew it might get a tad distorted once it was finished rising & cooking!) I did leave the practice loaf to rise a bit longer than I should have which made for a chubby bunny with barely any leg "definition". Lesson learned. Below are pics of the practice bunny---Eliza was out for the evening & made a photo request (happy to oblige!)
Easter Sunday, Eliza put together the two big bunny loaves to cook up for dinner---they were a hit! The nose fell off of one bunny even though I shoved it in pretty firmly (learned from the practice loaf eyes & noses pop out as the bread rises...) but it left a nice purple circle that looked nose-like instead! So, what's the next holiday we get to cook bread for? Not sure I can just make regular loaves anymore now that I've discovered creature loaves!!
