Wreath party....

The Nesting Place is having a Wreath Party!  What's a wreath party?  It's a bloggy thing where everyone links to their own homemade, handmade wreaths.  So I'm in.  Yesterday I did some baking and came up with these bread wreaths.  I'm going to fiddle around with making some more in the days to come leading up to Christmas so I can get it perfected.  Wouldn't these make nice gifts or pretty breads for the holidays?

I made my wreaths out of a French Bread recipe and then did the fancy cutting using this tutorial at Kitchen Mage.  You could use any bread dough you like -- even frozen bread dough would work for this.  The main thing is to roll the dough into a nice rope and then stick it together.  Let it rise for about 30-40 minutes and then do the snipping with a scissors, just before baking.  Hang it up with a ribbon if you want to or just tear off a little "leaf" and eat it up!

  1. How deliciously creative! Must make these - don't think they will last long enough to hang up though! ;)

    Thankful for Nester having this wonderful party so we could meet talented new bloggy friends.

  7. Thanks for your encouraging comments. Pom Pom and Thimbleanna....I had a chunk of the bread wreath today and it tastes like French Bread. A bit chewy, but still good. It would be especially good dipped in spaghetti sauce!
