Note that the drawings are, of course, done after the final bakes by illustrator Tom Hovey (aka the man with the coolest job ever!). He once told Vulture, “My job is to illustrate what the bakers planned to create, not what they actually baked in the tent.” So I just think it’s pretty neat to see a side-by-side of what the bakers had planned next to how things turned out.

“That is one of the best things I’ve seen in bread ever”
