Whip up a batch of bowtruckle bread just like the amazing Jacob Kowalski at his bakery.
The magical wizarding world is amazing and fun. I love absolutely everything about it. The magic in the Fantastic Beasts movies is as fabulous and awe inspiring as the Harry Potter films. There is something super cool about going back in time and getting foundation for a story line that is already deeply loved. Jacob Kowalski and his bakery have my heart. I created this adorable little baking project to make a bread bowtruckle using a free Fantastic Beasts printable pattern.
Ingredients and Supplies
- Puff Pastry Sheets
- FREE Printable Pattern (Grab it and download!)
- Cooking Brush
- Sharp Knife
- Parchment Paper
- Oversized Cookie Sheet – This is my FAVORITE!
This is a super easy, 2 ingredient project. The trick is in taking your time to cut.
Open your puff pastry sheet and roll out onto parchment paper. Use the pattern to cut around in creating a bowtruckle from the dough.
Put your bowtruckles on a large cookie sheet, on top of the parchment paper. Use the extra dough to create whatever you want. The kids will LOVE this part.
Beat one egg and brush it over the dough to create a golden crisp layer.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool before handling. While it is baking, make decorative bakery bags for your goodies.
How To Make the Bakery Bags
The same Fantastic Beasts printable that you downloaded to get the pattern has the tags for the bags. Cut them out and adhere them to a bag. If desired, use scissors to do zig zags across the top. I find that wine bags from the grocery store work great.
Put the cooled treats in the bags for some magical party fun! There is even a tag for the backs of the bags. If you are doing this with a group of kids at a party, this is a great way for them to get their name on their baked goody.
