Happy Easter!! Just wanted to give you all an update on how my bread came out using my Wilton-colored Easter eggs. Again, like last year, I am very happy with the bread itself, but the eggs could use some work. The color was great, BUT once I placed the wet towel on top for the dough to rise, some of the dye came off the eggs and bled into the bread.
I read a bit online, and found that some people let their dough rise in the oven next to a pot of boiling water. This *might* be the solution, because the bread is still in a warm and humid place, but the eggs are not in direct contact with moisture. I think I’ll try this next year and see how it goes. Stay tuned!
