Umm so apparently I made 6kg( 13 pounds) of Easter bread. :shock:
I say Easter bread because I got bored of shaping boring buns and decided bunnies are Easter too, and are a sign of integration. Originally I had planned to make two small bunnies. But you know how it goes Mr and Mrs Easter bunny get together and have 7 children or something like that. And the rest of the dough made 38 hot cross buns.

The Easter Rabbit family: (photo alert)

Mr Bunny before rising and after baking...

Mrs Boobalicious Bunny (not my name... Apparently the ears look like boobies). To be honest she deserves a place in the shit I fucked up I think.

Dough C

 

After two hours of baking(I'm meaning oven time) I ended up with:

Bread A – 2kg

1 boobalicious bunny

12 buns

 

Bread B – 1.2kg

14 buns, even ration apple:currant/zest

 

Bread C – 2.8kg

12 buns

7 lil bunnies

1 large bunny

 

And now I'm going to go to bed. At least it's crappy weather out, so I won't be missing much. I shouldn't drink coffee when I'm tired:sleeping-sleeping:

I'm overcome with admiration! I've just baked a large bakewell and a large lemon meringue, and I'm exhausted!  (Temperature of about 90F doesn't help...)

I think they are all lovely. It looks like you put a lot of love in them.

They look beautiful and I think the bunny ones are really cute. You have inspired me to make hot cross buns for Easter. It's not happening this year, but maybe next year.
