    I think after having this Baby Elephant Ham & Cheese bread for breakfast, it sure to give us some energy to go by for the whole morning even if it is just baby elephant. I wonder if it is big elephant bread, how much it will energize us? Love your tutorial pictures and that cutey elephant.

  • Bahar Anooshahr (September 1, 2017)

    Hi Victoria, what beautiful creations. How long will the dough keep in the fridge? if not, can i freeze it? Also, if I were to bake the whole thing, could i freeze it and use it within a week?
    Thank you.

    Cheers,
    Bahar
