Colomba di Pasqua

I think my Easter Doves came out a bit...... nazi germany eagle :-/


 


What do you think;


 


Would putting a green twig in their beak bring it back to the coming festivities?


 


Thanks txfarmer for the insightful pics!


 


recipe and shaping pics by txfarmer can be found here


 


I haven't been on TFL for some time, but HAVE been baking. Take a look at my "baking gallery"


 


warm greetings from Amsterdam

I guess it's the pointy bits that make it look a bit nazi... I didn't think of frosting them. Good idea, I'm going to do that :-), even though I will have to frost over the sugarcoating i gave it. I guess we will just have to CLUB the kids to bed on easter night, hihi

children getting hyper on eating sugar is a myth. At least this is what I read a couple of months ago.  Consider a white frosting of garlic herb cheese :)

thank u Akiko!


 


I will have to wait until Easter before I can taste them. Last year I was up at 5.30 AM taking care of Easter breakfast, and this year we're going to do it a little different :-), so the doves have gone straight to the freezer!

Your doves are beautiful! I am going to have to try your recipe. It looks really different than mine, which is much more of a dessert-type bread. <lacuocaciccia.com> Lovely work!

thank you! i made the quick and easy version, your recipe is indeed much richer than the recipe i used. I will definitely try your recipe; i think it's much closer to the "traditional" taste


 


 


Happy Easter!
