Fun Buns

I started baking bread in 1969.  As a new bride I wanted to continue the family tradition of making Swedish Rye Bread.

A few years ago I was looking for ways to share my love of baking with my grandchildren.  Here are some "fun buns" I have created.

HAHA! Too cute! I love these and would love to know more about your techniques for shaping and baking unique shapes.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your interest in the Fun Buns.  I plan on submitting more photos of the designs that I have found work well.  After that I will write about the different techniques and tools I use.  Thank you for your comment!

Thank you for encouraging me to participate in your website.  It took me a while to figure out the downsizing but now the site seems very user friendly.  I'm getting some nice feedback so it's been a lot of fun.
