Bread Baking Babes (BBB) January 2013

There are a few changes in BBBabeland. Susan’s, Sara’s and Mary’s busy lives are making them hang up their Babe-aprons. We will miss them! But we’re so pleased to welcome Jamie, the newest BBBabe!

Fantans I was thrilled about the choice for this month’s BBB task. I love trying new ways of shaping! When I saw Dewi’s buttery coconut fan shaped rolls, I immediately vowed to try them soon. And then this month’s lovely kitchen host, Pat, cleverly chose fantans for January’s task. Sure, Dewi’s rolls are slightly different from the BBB’s rolls but both end up being fan shaped.
