In the past I have tried making striaght loaves into a large sandwhich and you always end up with variations and they don't match up any where near perfect. The braids look perfect, I also swap them around in the ovens as they cook to make sure their bottoms and tops are all uniform...
Not an easy task to do something like this but it was worth it, my guests are still talking about it, lol
