Unfortunately, the picture above is the PRETTY version of it, after I tampered and tweaked it into something a person could actually tolerate looking at…and maybe consider eating it.
Let’s go back to the beginning to see how this “masterpiece” started, though. I believe this is from the time I tried recreating the adorable panda bread.
It totally looks like that, right? :P
Anyway, I started with all the appropriate proportions of colored bread dough:
When sliced, the bread pudding *did* look kinda cool. It’s not a panda, but the girls thought it was neat…even if maybe a little bit weird.
Now that I’m really inspecting and admiring this, the cream cheese does look a little gross, eh? Ah well, it’s still awesome!
Also, the recipe suggests adding nutella to the cream cheese for a darker skin complexion. I’m not sure I would’ve considered doing that at all, but I love the idea. <3
….and there’s the realization yet again that the simplest things make me giddy. To be sitting at my computer, smiling at a screen while I type, at the thought of adding chocolate to make a cream cheese swimmer a more accurate color for some people? Uh, yeah, I might have issues. Oops.
