Bread Baking Babes Score Bigly

They slash; they cut; they slit; they SCORE!

Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen and the host kitchen for this month, decided to take the monthly baking challenge in a different direction.

It wasn’t a baking challenge.

It was a slashing challenge.

Everyone got to make their own recipe for the bread and then practice using a sharp instrument to make pretty patterns.

Some, like our host kitchen, even made their own sharp instruments.

Well, not the sharp part, but they did find a new use for popsicle sticks

I miss popsicles……

So – all the Babes got to make their own bread and then slash / cut it any way they liked using anything they liked.

Check them out – there are a lot of interesting stories this month. (Beet Bread?)

  1. Ha! I love the way you managed to deflect away from the fact that my slashing failed pretty much miserably! Even though we have a swell new popsicle stick blade holder!

    This Bread Baking Babe bungled blading bigly. What a good thing it is that the others scored perfectly!

    (Popsicles aren’t anything like they used to be. They’re taste-free. But they do have handy sticks….)

    • There was a song about popsicle sticks when I was a kid….. How sad that they’ve been watered down. I fondly remembering racing my bike through town, eating my popsicle.
      Very fun challenge this month.

      • How brave of you to eat a popsicle and ride a bike at the same time!! Weren’t you worried about the stick suddenly getting caught in your throat if you hit a bump in the road?

        It’s entirely possible that popsicles taste the same as they used to, and I have just become snobbish about them. But to me, they just taste icy and overly sweet. Additionally, the fake-fruit flavouring is overwhelmed by the lurid colour.

        • That’s true Elizabeth! (Being brave comment.) I rode my bicycle while holding an umbrella… long story short, the bicycle ended up riding me. Never made that mistake again.
