I'm trying to get ahead of the game and am starting to do fun St. Patrick's Day stuff before I discover that its March 16th. I came up with this cute little bread creation on paper and was relying on luck that it would translate well in bread form. Not too shabby, I think. Here's how I did it:
Start with a dough ball (I like french bread) and divide it in half.
And roll these into snakes about 14 inches long. Lay them side by side and arrange them with one end of the snakes just under the cloud but coming out of the top. Bend them into a rainbow.
Now grab that other half of the original dough ball. Divide it into a 2:1 ratio.
One of the remaining dough balls should be rolled into a snake to fit across the top of the pot to form the rim.
Just before you put it in the oven, brush it with an egg wash to give it a nice shine. Its gold, after all.
Ok, then. Good luck.
