    Directions:

    1. 1

      Mix in 1/2 cup flour.
    3. 3

    4. 4
      Sift together dry ingredients (sugar, salt, flour and cinnamon).

      Add the remaining ingredients, but only half the butter. Now add the yeast dough and mix until it forms a thick, but not hard, dough.

      Knead dough until it no longer sticky, adding more flour if necessary.
    7. 7
      Place dough in a large greased bowl, turn dough over and cover it with a cloth.
    8. 8
      Let dough rise until it doubles in size.
    9. 9
      Punch down and lightly knead it again, gradually adding the rest of the butter.
    10. 10
      Divide the dough into three equal parts.
    11. 11
      Shape two parts into separate round loaves, using the third as sculptural decoration for loaves.
    12. 12
      Lightly cover and let loaves double in size.
    13. 13
      While dough is rising, preheat oven to 350°F.
    14. 14
      Glaze with beaten egg yolks, if desired.
    15. 15
      Bake for 20-25 minutes or until nicely browned.
    16. 16
      Sprinkle with sugar while warm.
    17. 17
      While loaves are cooling, mix confectioner's sugar with enough milk to get the consistency desired.
    18. 18
      When the loaves are cooled, decorate as desired with icing and other pastry confections to create skulls, flowers, birds or names of the deceased.
