That's actually a great idea for a pannetone mould! - using flower pots
Did u line the pot with any baking paper?
Thx ;)

Those are great, I love the way they are decorated on top to look like flowers.

I may be hitting a shop this week to pick up some clay pots! Plus, it gives me a chance to play, my favorite thing about baking!

Agreed that that is a great idea.

I have some little herb pots sitting in the shed that I may need to clean up to give it a shot.

The cans from chineese chestnuts makes another cute loaf of bread for indevidual breads for the table. Like the little ones w the knot on top, Even flatten the little piece of dough lay in a piece of cheese & roll it up ,stuff it in a pot or can & it will bloom like a flower w cheese coming out of the top. good stuff hotbred!
