Baking with molds
I recently was given an octopus shaped cake mold for the holidays and I plan on using bread in it. However, I can't seem to make a decision on the best way to do this because of the way that the bread will go into the mold before baking.
I was thinking on rolling it into long cylindrical pieces and then laying them out into the mold and hoping that the bread will expand into the mold while baking. Will this work or is there a better way to get this done?
