Add all the accessories together and knead the dough, I use a chef’s machine. Eight minutes on low speed. Proceed with the first fermentation, it’s cooler, so be sure to extend the fermentation time. In the summer, you barely have to wait, and the fermentation is done during the waking process. The dough is fermented until it doubles in size.
When the dough is done fermenting, take it out to exhaust, divide it into two parts, and roll out the bottom part into a thin sheet. The other part makes expressions and is set aside for later. Today I used a mold to make the dough, it’s more regular and quicker. You can buy some molds to make it more beautiful and convenient. Using the mold, press out the dough Pi.
This is the pressed look.
Roll in the sausage. Proceed with the second fermentation. Next use the remaining dough to make the expression.
Divide the remaining dough into two parts, the red dough to make a bow. The black one for the eyes. I used fruit and vegetable powders, the red dough was kneaded with beet powder and the black was edible bamboo charcoal powder.
Press out the oval shape.
Use a mold to press out the oval shape and take a chopstick and sandwich it in the middle to make a bow. Decorate the dough.

The rest of the dough, as much as possible to make a panda steamed buns, just like kneading playdough.
