I always wondered how this was being done... my first try.
I now know what needs to be done to improve on this. This has no real use other than the wow factor, in my opinion.
a wow factor! That's amazing.
Just because it caught my fancy... from some photos I saw.
The flared bits have a pita chip look to them...no doubt a lot of intricate work to make this bread. At first glance it looks like a sunflower, it's quite impressive, beautifully done!
and that was one of the issues with this bake. Chips started getting brown quicker than the rest of the boule. I wanted thin petals but...
Thank you for your kind comment!
Sometimes, it's just what is needed. Beautiful job! Very impressive.
It was kinda monkey see monkey do...
I've made this several times, my husband loves the cracker like petals. Yours is a beauty to be sure!
A truly beautiful bread!
