We're playing with breads in fancy shapes: Celtic knotwork, Cat tongues, swans, mermaids, alligators, suns, wheat sheaves, scrolls, and aother shapes.
Some of them rise more than others so we have to shape much more loosely than we'd expected. Other bread recipes don't rise as much, so we shaped them too looselya,d got sloppy breads. This will take much more experimentation.
We hope to have a variety of small fancy shaped breads to sell on Thursdays or Fridays for weekend use, and for holidays.
One bread we're working on this weekend is a sourdough tomato dill bread shaped into roses that form a heart. I think it will be a popluar Valentine roll for two.
