Most of the colours were achieved naturally using dehydrated vegetable powders, so they are not only cute, colourful but also healthy!

Really happy that the buns were still so soft and fluffy even on the next day, I hope you will have fun making these stackable pullapart bread buns~

Do try making them too. I have included the recipe below as well as some pictures on the arrangement of the bread before baking.

I also love the back view of these Pooh Tsum Tsum bread buns, so cute right? haha

Pooh Tsum Tsum Bread Recipe (4)I have to thank @umi0407 and @ashy_gfam and their beautiful 3D pull-apart bread buns that have been very popular and inspiring.

Thanks to their inspiration I started to make character 3D breads and pull-apart bread buns recently too.

(C) Tigger *makes 3 buns

  • 1.5 tsp carrot powder
  • 1/2 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 11g beaten egg
  • 1/2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 35~37ml warm water (40C)
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt

(D) Piglet *makes 2 buns

  • 40g bread flour (divided into 2 portions of 20g each)
  • 1/2 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 11g beaten egg
  • 1/2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 35~37ml warm water (40C)
  • some pink food coloring
  • 7g unsalted butter
  • 1/4  tsp salt

Method

*Do give yourself sufficient time to do and prepare the various coloured dough, so that you have enough buffer in between to shape and make the bread buns, without causing the bread dough to over ferment. Over fermentation will mean that your bread will be wrinkled and also drier when baked.

Making Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore:

1. In a bowl, place half the flour and add in the ingredients listed under (A) except unsalted butter and salt. Mix well and vigorously to activiate the yeast. Then add in the remaining half of the flour, unsalted butter and salt. Mix until most of the bread dough some together.

2. Using a scrapper, scrap all the dough mixture onto your work top. Knead until the bread dough is stretchy, smooth and does not stick to your hands. It should take you about 5 mins only as the portion is small.

3. Shape into a round ball, place inside the bowl. Cover with cling wrap and let it rest for about 40mins for first fermentation. I like to keep the dough in the warm place in the house, for example. Inside the microwave (not switched on).

* Preheat your oven to 170C

* Repeat for Eeyore using the same method with ingredients listed under (B).

4. After the first fermentation, the dough will double in size. You can also do the dough check. Punch out the gas and reshape into a round ball. Divide the yellow dough into 3 equal parts, and the purple dough into 3 equal parts. Each of them should be around 54-56g. Cover and let the dough rest for about 10mins (bench time).

5. Shape the bread dough into Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore. You can alternate the coloured dough like mine.

*Tip: You can gently arrrange some aluminum foil to give some support for the ears, if not might roll off the bread buns when you bake them. 

6. Bake the bread buns for about 12mins at 170C. At the last 2 mins, gently cover with a sheet of aluminum foil to avoid browning of the bread buns.

Making Tigger and Piglet

1. In a bowl, place half the flour and add in the ingredients listed under (C) except unsalted butter and salt. Mix well and vigorously to activiate the yeast. Then add in the remaining half of the flour, unsalted butter and salt. Mix until most of the bread dough some together.

2. Using a scrapper, scrap all the dough mixture onto your work top. Knead until the bread dough is stretchy, smooth and does not stick to your hands. It should take you about 5 mins only as the portion is small.

3. Shape into a round ball, place inside the bowl. Cover with cling wrap and let it rest for about 40mins for first fermentation. I like to keep the dough in the warm place in the house, for example. Inside the microwave (not switched on).

* Preheat your oven to 170C

* Repeat for Piglet using the same method with ingredients listed under (D). The portion is only half that of Tigger.

4. After the first fermentation, the dough will double in size. You can also do the dough check. Punch out the gas and reshape into a round ball. Divide the orange dough into 3 equal parts, and the pink dough into 2 equal parts. Cover and let the dough rest for about 10mins (bench time).

5. Shape the bread dough into Tigger and Piglet. I chose to make the Tigger as pull-apart bread and piglet separately. I would recommend making Piglet together too.

*Tip: You can gently arrrange some aluminum foil to give some support for the ears, if not might roll off the bread buns when you bake them. 

6. Bake the bread buns for about 12mins at 170C. At the last 2 mins, gently cover with a sheet of aluminum foil to avoid browning of the bread buns.

8. For Tigger, I used some egg sheet, ham, edible pen for the details.

Note: Let the bread buns cool down first before drawing the features or to stack them together :)

    Vegetable powder is a good idea. May I know where you buy them?

      Hello Wendy, I got them from a Japanee brand. But I have seen the vegetable powder sold at the basement of Anchorpoint mall. There is a little store that sell Japanese food products and dry goods :)
