Cinnamon braid knots

Thanks to yozzaause’s wonderful post, I made a dozen of these knotty buns for a little weekend trip with hubby. They’re an adaption from KAB and gozney. Glazed with warm orange syrup instead of a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

The look great!  I’ve been staring at them and just trying to figure out how you made them.  Really nicely done!  I’m going to have to find a video on this shaping.

Enjoy :)
