    I am very happy with my first attempt at a butterfly swirl. The cut just out of the mold. Big thanks to my friend Bob who made my cutter, first time using it. I need some practice with it as I see my hesitation marks but it is slick like butter using it.

    Those turned out awesome. Never know it was your first try. I've never even tried, so great job!

    Loriag, they are beautiful. You must have been so excited when you cut the loaf. It surely isn’t an easy technique, and you nailed the first time- impressive!
