From hello kitty, to little tiger

I was working on my script in the afternoon when an old friend messaged me. We were catching up and the topic of bread making came up.

I’ve recently tried to make Baymax bread for a friend, because that is her favorite character. I took the recipe off Little Miss Bento’s page. The bread ended up looking not too bad. 

The friend I talked to today saw the picture, and asked if I could make Hello Kitty ones. I thought to myself, it shouldn’t be too hard as I can use the same recipe. I just need to shape the bread differently. We joked about how she would buy from me if I could make them.

After dinner I decided I should try making it. I couldn’t wait. But instead of filling the bread with Nutella, I decided to use custard instead. I prefer custard over to Nutella. So I cooked some custard, and left it in the fridge while I knead my dough.

Everything was going according to plan until I had to draw the facial features. Disaster! I have the shape of a hello kitty, but facial features of a little tiger! 😓🙀 

As you can see, the first 2 pictures on the top look pretty decent. But the bottom ones just changed it completely! I guess I was being overly ambitious. I should have stuck to using edible colour ink to draw the features instead of using melted chocolate. I also wanted to add a little flavor to the bread with the chocolate.

Never mind, there is a saying, every failure is a closer step to success. 失败乃成功之母 I will have to try again until I succeed!

I bet my friends will be laughing their heads off when they see the picture. Laugh all you want guys! It’s good to laugh and be happy. I’ll do anything to bring you joy.

Instead of hello kitty, I will have little tigers for breakfast. They are still soft and fluffy with a delicious custard filling. I’ve got some leftover dough so I made a round ball with the smiley face. I’ll tried that piece of bread and it’s very nice. (是好吃的咯!)
