I never attend any bread making classes, all I did was just trial and error. If you think you can't make it or it's too difficult for you, think again...
"I laughed every time I saw these pictures of the animal bun. Just came across some cute animal buns made by others and I thought my boy would love it, so I made for my boy. I made this at night after my boy went to bed because I'm not good in handling bread dough, I need full concentration when doing this. To shape the dough wasn't as easy as decorate cakes with fondant. Bread dough change it's shapes a little after final proofing and I shaped it before the final proofing, that's the challenge!
I made 2 animals... my boy's favourite hippopotamus and lion. Hippopotamus with my dad's homemade kaya filling and lion bun with pork floss. Guess which one my boy likes the most? By animal, he likes hippopotamus, but he likes to eat the lion bun more because he likes bread with pork floss. I made this with Soft Breakfast Bun recipe, the buttery soft buns.
8 buns never too much for both of us."
