How to Make the Cross on a Hot Cross Bun

Hot cross buns go back as far as the 12th century. Supposedly, an Anglican monk baked the bun and marked them with a cross as a representation for Good Friday. These became popular over the years and are now popular to eat around Easter weekend.  

Ever wondered how the cross is made? Sarah Cook demonstrates how to create the cross on Hot Cross Buns.
