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 :)

They are beautiful looking dove breads!  As if they can fly..   How was the taste  and crumb? 

I saw your art gallery, They look excellent, too.

Best wishes,

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!
