You can look…

…but mustn’t touch!

The other day, I got a message via Messenger on Facebook from my dear friend, the ever sweet and gorgeous Mary, asking me if I was at home. I said yes, I was but I am not accepting anything as I am now on a low carb, low sugar, low salt, low everything diet.

However, she insisted on dropping by to give me this…

…that her girl, Axia, had made.

Wool bread!!! Everyone is making it, it seems. I see the photographs all over Facebook like at one time when the pandemic just broke out and everyone was forced to stay home, there were snapshots of penyeram of all shapes and sizes in shades of brown and even, black!

Well, for the uninitiated, wool bread is just a simple milk bread and you can fill it with sweet or savoury fillings. The options are endless and you can definitely get creative with it. The name wool bread was given to this bread because of the design. People think it looks like spool or wool or yarn – hence the name wool bread!

The one that Axia…

…made had garlic filling and boy, the fragrance filled the whole house the moment I took it inside. If I am not wrong, it was that garlic and cheese filling…

…that one would get with those currently very popular Korean buns

Much as I would love to, I had to refrain from feasting on the lovely soft and fluffy bread so I just nibbled a bit while I watched the ladies in the house enjoying it to their hearts’ content.

Thank you so much, Mary and to you too, Axia!

In case anybody is interested, you can place an order for this stunning fresh mango cake with edible carnations from Axia…

…for Mother’s Day and you will get this complimentary Thai seafood salad…

…for your dinner that day. You can contact them via +6013-899 6868 to order and/or for further details on or before the 5th of May.

Lead me not into temptation for much as I would love to grab one to indulge in, I’m afraid I can only look but mustn’t touch. There are no sugar-free cakes, are there?
