My Favorite Hippie Bread


Some hints of Color...




I got my inspiration for this one from my favorite Flower Child shirt. What do you think? Perfect with some good clogs, beads, and tassels. Lots of tassels.

Hints of color: Green paint usually is an extraction from herbs and combined with egg. Red comes from berries. Brown from a special egg wash. The white comes from flour. My favorite is violet. I was plum out of blueberries.

That's pretty.

Question: What do you do with all this pretty stuff you make? Do you actually eat it?

Chef Tess said...

Thanks all! Thanks for comments and encouragement! To answer Amy loo, YES we eat the bread...but only after I take pictures! It's pretty, but not too pretty to eat!

What a fabulous idea that your paint is nature's own.This is just outstanding.

Chef Tess said...

Thank you again. From a fellow artist it means a lot!

I adore the looks of this painted bread! I've never seen painted bread before discovering your blog and am hooked. And totally fascinated! Could you please give a bit more info on the paint? Pretty please? Pretty pretty please? Thanks....

I will have a lot more in the future. If you go through the rest of the decorative breads I give some pretty good hints. I'm not sure if I want to give it all away, as we may have a bakery in the near future and it would be nice to have something totally unique. Thank you so much for your kind words. I appreciate it so much!
