Lamb Buns: Having fun in your kitchen

Christmas is coming, and yes, I'm in the mood to play ^^.



And the best place for me to have fun is in my own kitchen, hehe. Today I got an idea from the book : COOK BOOKS みんな大好き! 動物・果物 菓子パン, it comes with super cute idea for making breads. 
You may think that I rarely buying books now, but you're wrong, haha, I buy a lot as always, but don't use the recipe from the book much, some of them just for an inspiration (or I just want to buy it ^^"). I didn't use the recipe from the book, as I have the bread recipe that I like. But the how to make the face and body of the lamb is from the book.
I used black cocoa in this recipe to make the bread very black, but you can use any Dutch process cocoa for this recipe (add black colour if you want it to be black).
If you want you can sprinkle the cookie dough with sugar before making the pattern to make it more cute but I didn't add it as I don't want to make it sweeter.
Well, welcome the month of celebration, and having fun in your kitchen.
