After recently working on the PDF version of my Bread Art book, I rekindled a desire to attempt another bread.
My son thought it was a great idea and together we found inspiration from an ABC library book.
S is for Snake.
My 2 year old son was thrilled to attack this project with all his energy. His weapon of choice… the rolling pin.
We did a lot of rolling logs for this project because the snake needed to have yellow spots.
We gave his body a slithering motion by using white filler dough.
It was exciting to slice and delicious to eat. Having home made bread in the house was a treat for us all, my kids wanted this for dessert! We used the last of it for french toast the next morning.
