Chinese buns

Yumyum, Chinese buns! Or if you prefer the name 'bao'.
Either or that, I love Chinese bakery! 
Today I've homemade some.............. but not edible ones unfortunately. 
No, these are food charms made out of clay. 
I'm very happy with the results because I think they look pretty real don't they?

My Top 5 favorite Chinese buns
1. 'Gaai May Bao'
2. 菠蘿 'Pineapple bun'
3. 紙蛋糕 'Zhi bao daan goa - paper wrapped cake'
4. 咖喱角 'Ga lay gok - Curry triangle'
5. 奶油包 'naai jau bao' - cream bun'


This is a メロンパン, ( melon pan ) by the way, my favorite Japanese bun :3
