Roll a dough piece with your hands to form a 1-inch-thick rope, and then shape rope into a “U” shape. Put a whole, raw egg into the inside of the “U”, twisting the rope to form a fishtail at the bottom. Transfer loaf to prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.
Brush each “baby” with the beaten egg and decorate with colored sprinkles. Allow loaves to rest until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
