I wanted to make something Autumny so I added sweet chestnut paste in this pretty pink rolls.
At the final shaping I put the chestnut paste in the middle of the dough and kind of shaped the bread around it so that the paste was sealed in... But then, I scored the top... to let the paste out...?, hum..., I sometimes (or often) don't know what I'm doing...
Anyway, the caramelised bits of chestnut paste on the top and some on the sides were the nicest bits!
We discovered cheesy toasts with this bread work too. The sweet paste and the saltiness from cheese went very well. (They were too good that I ate them all before I had a chance to take picture...)
You can of course make this bread with your usual white bread too.
Last Saturday was a big day for us... It was my dad-in-law's 70th birthday and we planned a surprise party for him. With three weeks of careful planning (or maybe it was a bit suspicious...), the party was a great success. :)
We managed to contact his cousins and friends, and invited them to come and celebrate his 70th birthday. We did this all in secret....
In the end about 50 people gathered together for his big day. So..., when he came home and saw all those people in the garden singing '♪Happy Birthday♪', it must have been a total surprise to him.
Pete, I'm sorry that we lied to you, and I promise there will be no more surprise party... ;D
The barrel cake was rum soaked fruits cake. The middle tree stump was lemon, and the bottom grass was chocolate.
This surprise party was one of the biggest events ever at the World of Sweets kitchen too.
Not only did we make the birthday cake, we also catered most of the food ourselves including the breads for sandwiches. (Yes, of course, 100% my sourdough breads!)
It was such a great day. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!
