Bread Art

So, I work in fashion, and I love baking for my friends, and this is what happens when you bake bread for people in the fashion industry, they turn it into a mini fashion shoot featuring expensive jewellery. but anyways...

so the bread in the photo is a SD Saffron Boule. This week, I have made a few baked goodies as gifts, the SD Saffron Boule, SD Lemon Boule, SD Jam Buns, Palm Sugar (Gula Melaka) Cup Cakes and some Melting Moment Cookies

 

The Saffron Boule recipe came from SallyBR's http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/29516/golden-saffron-sourdough and though mine did not come out as golden in colour as hers, the aroma was definitely very appetizing! I also love that she has adopted the 3,2,1 recipe which i find very useful when baking with the heart, and not the weight scale.. just winging it, I guess?

Fun post :)  Great idea to blend both bread and jewels….

Love your personalized cards too.  Hand drawn or did you use stickers?

Thanks for the smile.

P.S.  I make a sd lemon boule too and add poppy seeds to it.  Makes a really nice dough and I am a sucker for using poppy seeds for some reason.

thanks Janet!

the cards were pre-printed with different renditions of a whimsical girl running around. I use them for everything, really.

lemon and poppy seed is a real killer combo, i have to say, i am not quite big on seeds and nuts, so i just decided to go with the lemon.

Next question:

Where did you get the cards?  I ask because I give 99% of what I bake away and those look perfect to use for some of the people I bake for.
