Pin Wheel Yam Bread

We were out of bread yesterday. So, I have made some to feed my family. Never thought of making pin wheel bread ! Not even tried once before. I've got to give it a go, since I have some yam paste stored in my fridge for so long already. At the end, I came out with this pin wheel yam bread top with vanilla frosting. Oh... boy, just think of the heavy yam aroma plus vanilla frosting ! How can you resist !
