18 Strand Star Braided Loaf


This is my latest star!
A Rosemary Raisin Sourdough.
It was gorgeous with minestrone! Heck, it was gorgeous on it's own! I think it is really good at accessorising as well. I mean, look at that Burgundy scarf, not many doughs can get away with that look! I will, of course, still not tell you how I painted it! The beading and paint are all edible.

Holy Cow, girl! That is amazing. I need to have you do some bread with me. I haven't done much of it in a long time, and I'm sure you have things to teach me.

I don't know if even an elephant tranquilizer could give me enough patience to attempt something like that...it's magnificent!

You two are making me feel all warm and fuzzy all over! Thanks! Actually it's a little complicated to look at, but I think if you can braid hair, you can do this...un-tranquilized.

That is beeeutiful. If I actually showed up somewhere with that my family would KNOW I didn't do it. :-)

Now Kathy, I know you can braid hair! It just so happens you may know me well enough for some private coaching...in exchage for some help with my softball skills!

These are all gorgeous (I think I like this one best). I've seen some very pretty sculptures with bread dough and some neat stuff done with herbs baked on the bread, but this is even prettier. And doubly cool because you're using natural colors and not food coloring. Ah, I wish I had some time to play, I'd like to try this.
