A Wedding Loaf

I just finished a six strand braided loaf that is actually one of my favorite ever. I made it to do a picture tutorial on decorative doughs used in this type of bread for my Upcoming Classes In Salt Lake City Next Week! Actually...we're looking at three days until the class. How's that for waiting to the last minute?
I think it should be at a wedding. I used the technique for the painted breads I've given tutorials on in the past, along with the dough that I will be sharing at the class. Here's how it looked before it was painted...

This is after using some of the pearl glaze and pink tones. What do you think a gal should charge for a loaf like that?

I'm pretty sure I'm in love.

Don't forget to join in on our Upcoming Giveaway! A 5 quart Paula Deen Cast Iron covered casserole. It's almost as stunning as this bread.

I'm told there is a little space left for the class on Saturday. Hopefully I'll see you there.

That is so beautiful! Did you cover the flowers when baking so they didn't brown too fast? It's so evenly baked...

Chef Tess said...

No covering. It just bakes normally but I don't use any egg wash so that helps.
