Food Photo Friday - I Got One Laugh and One Sympathy Hug

Sometimes in life, in order to make a good omelet, you've got to break some eggs.
I tried.
I really did.
I thought it would be fun (not to mention loving, caring and all that other good stuff...) to bake a special Purim themed challah for this weekend.
I hoped it would come out looking somewhat like a hamantashen.
Now bear in mind Avram's poppy seed allergy and the limitations that it puts on me.
Here are the results.

I don't think it's THAT bad, but I'm not sure my family agreed. One family member, after looking positively puzzled at what it was meant to represent, unabashedly laughed out loud upon hearing the explanation. Another family member gave me a sympathy hug (then muttered that it more resembled said family member's nose than a hamantash).
I don't care.
I like it.
Pass the salt.

You can add two jellybeans for eyes and a piece of licorice for a mouth.

The nose comment cracked me up I can see how it could look like a nose :)

I think it's a great idea and will need to steal it from you next year!

How about the Homon Challa which we members of the master Race devour as part of the Purim Seudo? How do you serve your Gehengenes?

I'm sorry but I have to agree with the person that said it looks like a nose.
Still, I think it is a very cute idea!

It's not that bad of a try! Let THEM try to make a challah in the shape of a hamantash and then we'll see who is talking!! LOL but seriously, you did a pretty good job!
