Yesterday's leaf-bread making went well. We made about 250 leaf breads, and I probably fried about half of them and decorated about 3 dozen. Below is an image of one, decorated and ready for frying. Leaf-bread really should be perfectly round, but this particular piece didn't quite turn out that way, and it's also quite a bit thicker than it should have been, probably because the person who rolled it is still in training. I make 5 with this pattern and this was the best one, so I prefer to show it rather than a perfect cake with an imperfect pattern. This, by the way, is hand-cut, meaning I used a knife and not a pattern roller to make the chevrons.
