I spent a couple of days playing baker and cheesemonger, with varying results.
Polymer clay food miniatures are so fun to make for a foodie who is currently on a 10 day juice cleanse.
I need to go back to bread and cheesemaking at some point, but I quit after a couple of days because I now have way too many loaves of bread and cheeses in my possession.
My first attempts at baguette loaves were made with sculpey clay and colored with turmeric and eye shadow/mineral makeup. My dad actually painted them for me. They came out a bit overbaked, but it was a great first attempt.
My second attempts (and subsequent ones) were better, I still need to refine my bread painting skills.
I also ended up making Norwegian lefse sticks and bread. Lefse is like a potato based flat bread, similar to a huge tortilla, that has it’s origins during the Viking age. In my house, we make it around Christmas time, because my ex is Norwegian. I will do a separate post on the lefse tomorrow…
My first attempt at a blue cheese ended up looking like spinach artichoke dipped stuffed into bread instead- yumm
I ended up making blue cheeses, brie, swiss, garlic gouda, and herb covered chevre. Cheese making is fun, I will eventually get back to it again.
