Baa Baa.... Cute Little Sheep Steamed Bun aka Pao filled with chicken and shiitake mushrooms. Other than the regular Char Siew Pao (BBQ Pork Bun) , this is another type of savoury steamed bun that my family loved.
Previously I made Chicken Pao in cute chicken shape. This time, it's little sheep. Actually this was a last minute idea. At first I planned to make plain steamed bun because today is Friday, early school dismissal that I have not much "play time" in the kitchen. When I was half way shaping the buns, the hubby popped by the kitchen, asked me "what are you making? chicken pao ahh, why so plain? " .....
Looking at the plain round buns, yes I agreed, too plain LOL... I have a thumbs size dough left in the refrigerator, I then used it to turn my plain round buns into cute little sheeps.
Here's how I made it...

How I shape the bun into cute little sheep:
1. Wrap the bun with fillings.
2. Roll out a small portion of dough. Use a sheep head shape cutter, cut out the dough. Brush some milk on the bun and place the "head" on the bun.

3. Use a flower shape cutter, cut out a small flower. Brush some milk on the top of the "head" , place the "flower" on top of it. Cut out another "flower", place it at the back of the bun as tail. Use pictures below as reference.
4. When it is done, turn off the heat, let it sit in the steamer for 5 minutes before removing from the steamer. When the buns are completely cooled, draw facial details with edible marker.
