Another great cake! Bravo! And I do not have a form, but can not risk to make it more square baking dish in which to shape the tree with foil.

Ina, a very good idea for the holidays, bravo!

I'm glad you like the idea and you. For quite some time travel shops and look for some appropriate form, because this is my problem. I wonder what can be adapted to any elongated baking pan, but not at home *skillful hands*!So if you think of something, please share. I decided in the end to get the recipe for the holiday approaching and someone might surprise household with interesting bread.

Here I saw such a pan-shaped tree and wondering what to use, and in not occurred to me for such a loaf, gave us a great idea!

At school we made bread in the shape of clover. Then we used film. Several sheets of foil folded and twisted into the desired shape. The inside is coated with oil. The resulting dough filled in the form, and arranged outside of a few cups of custard. I think this will happen. Bravo for the wonderful bread.

steffanell - in Bulgaria you saw and where such a form or in Tripoli? Ivalina - your idea is very acceptable. Thank you share it!

In Tripoli, already bought it form, sorry Ina not explained where I saw her.

Today I made tomorrow my daughter will wear it in kindergarten! It is very beautiful! Since no baking pan configurations zastelih baking pan oven with aluminum foil, coated it with oil

then ordered the balls on the film and leavened bread I shaped foil form as in the recipe and then baked, it became very easy!
