Beautiful Cornucopia Bread filled with fruitThis seasonal centerpiece is a showstopper that everyone can actually eat! I love to make these for Thanksgiving. Fill them whatever you like; fruit, veggies, even little bread rolls. Everyone can pull at the rings and enjoy.


Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1 large cornucopia

  11. Bunch up a couple other pieces of foil into large balls and throw inside cornucopia. This will keep it sturdy with all the bread dough around it.
