BreadBakingDay #8 - celebration breads
Susan – my other personal bread baking queen – from Wild Yeast is the host of the 8th edition of Bread Baking Day. She invites us to celebrate March with a special celebration bread.

I planned to bake a Colomba Pasquale the typical Italian dove-shaped Easter bread. As I have no such tin, I wanted to make my own, but then I remembered the disaster with my own-made Panettone tin, so I decided to make buns with an Amaretti-glaze. Perhaps not authentic but delicious!

  1. Dear Zorra
    These easter celebration cupcakes look exotic.. I am sure they are very delicious…
    The idea of using baking paper for the cases is excellent!!

  2. I love anything almond/amaraetto/amaretti so I’m definitely in for these beauties. I love the paper nests, brilliant, much cuter than premade baking cups. Thanks for originating BBD and letting me host this month!
