A basket of Challah and Bagels
A good customer of mine asked me to make a few bagels, so I got into it (which always happens when I make bread) and made a basket full of Challah and Bagels. I LOVE bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon!! And capers and onions!
Good morning Kiva, I smell a cup of cappuchino and enjoy the bagels, yummy . Great work as always!!ReplyDelete
Great work,now I'm hungry ;-)! Hugs,JeannetteReplyDelete
Great, so real! is time to breakfast...ReplyDelete
Thanks guys :-D!!!ReplyDelete
Did you ever try sardines in tomatos on a bagel? It´s a thing we eat for breakfast in Norway!!! Weird? O yes..but I like it!!!ReplyDelete
Love both your sardines and bread!!!!
Happy Valentine sunday Kiva!!!
I have been meaning to ask if you will do this, Kiva, but I kept forgetting. Any chance you can link your ebay store to this page?ReplyDelete
By the way, my fav bread of all time is garlic and sour cream bagel. Yummmmms, just like yours!
Absolutely gorgeous! I am currently working on bagels and challah as well. Maybe mine can get as good as yours one day!ReplyDelete
Synnove, I have never tried that!! But I forgot to add that I DO love tomatoes on bagels ;-). You know, that sounds like something I would totally dig...as long as the sardines were de-boned first!! So, cream cheese (do you put that on there too?), tomatoes, and sardines. Ok, I could definitely hang with that concoction.ReplyDelete
Susan, I will!! LOVE garlic! Garlic on just about everything!! Did you know that there is a garlic festival in Northern California and they make garlic ice cream?? That would be pushing it, methinks :-/.
Oh, thank you Alpal, you are too sweet!! And you CAN!! I just make the base color (white, translucent, champagne), roll a ball, flatten it a bit, then get my ball stylus and poke a hole in the middle, widening it a bit), then shade with chalks (usually a mixture of burnt sienna, ochre, etc.). I also lightly brush a bit of matte varnish on the tops after they're baked. The "salt" and "poppy seed" ones are sprinkled with craft sand ;-).
You are awesome! Thank you so much for all of your help! Wow! I will try these new ideas and let you know what I come up with!ReplyDelete
Any time! If you ever have any questions ,I will alwyas do my best to help ;-)!! Feel free to email me, too!ReplyDelete
Great work!!! Terrific!!!ReplyDelete
Bread is one of my favorite food groups. :) We were just talking about bagels and lox today.
Those bagels are to die for! I've tried to make bread before, and so far I'm still not satisfied with what I've made! One question for you Kiva, do you shade with chalks before or after baking them in the oven? Thanks again. And I haven't been doing to many minis because but I'm about to start up again! Thanks again Kiva for all your inspiration.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sara!! I shade before I bake, but I go a little heavy because it fades somewhat. I usually go deeper than I think I need to.ReplyDelete
Sara, you keep at it!! It's amazing to me that you even manage to do a bit of miniaturing while being in nursing school :-O!!
