tatty bear kaya buns
Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– each of my bun is 43g, with 10g of kaya (you can use up to 20g of kaya)
我的餐包各 43克,内陷 10克(内陷重量可高达 20克)

– i painted the buns by adding a tsp of dark cocoa powder with egg yolk, then hand painted using toothpick and brush
图案是手绘的~ 一颗蛋黄液里筛入一小匙黑可可粉、混合均匀。然后用竹签或毛笔一笔一划画上去

– i did not egg wash my buns due to the painting

    Vic Vic dear,
    I came from your 古早面包post。
    I wanted to learn how to draw cute picture on buns.
    Do you drew before or after last proof?
    Thanks dear!
