Sorry to read that you had a little trouble, but a real Daring Baker manages all challenges.

It sounds like you handled the pressure with grace, Simona. And the tulip--how lovely.


This wasn't an easy challenge but you did great. Love the shots with the tulip :)


My second batch got stuck on the cloth as well, but we learn as we go forwards don't
Bellissimo il tuo tulipano!


lovely pairing of bread and flowers.
I especially enjoyed your definition of "hubris" :-)

baking soda

Maybe next time you might moisten your linen with water and rub it with abundant flour, let dry completely, add a little flour and rub in again. This way your towel is going to be stiff to make trenches and well floured.
Love the tulip pic!


Well done!

Bellini Valli

You "rose" to the challenge and your loaves are a thing of beauty. Now on to the next challenge!!!!


Your bread looks delicious and oh, so pretty posing with the flowers :)


great job! love the beautiful flowers too :)

Simona Carini

Thanks to all of you for your kind words. It was a really fun challenge!

Thanks for the advice, baking soda. It will come handy tomorrow, when I will proceed with try #3.


That's interesting about the heat source being too close causing a crack - I learned something new, thanks :)

Looks great still.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Jenny.


Oh, I'm sorry that you had to discover the "not enough flour on the cloth" thing - I did as well! But yours look like they (eventually) turned out great!


I soooooooo had the not enough flour on the towel thing, too. Sigh. The bread tasted great, though. I'm sort of tempted to try again...but not quite yet.

Simona Carini

I recommend you try again and you'll see that you will use enough flour. Kellypea, let yourself be tempted.


Great job, Simona!



Thanks Paz!
