Strawberry Custard Bun

I saw soooo pretty bun in Table For 2, with strawberry as a topping. I wanted to make them too. So I made that buns, but sadly I couldn't make it pretty. The bun's texture is almost the same with doughnut, but it remained soft in the next day. I thought I will use this dough for my doughnut dough later. (Biasanya donat saya keras kayak batu hari kedua huhuhuhu)

For your information, this bun is easy but I needed so many effort, I made all from the scratch from the dough, custard, then strawberry sauce. But it was great, because I never saw any bakery sell this hahaha.
Here is the recipe :

Strawberry Custard Bun

1 tsp vanila
2 eggs
2 egg yolk
60g sugar
15g cake flour
pinch of salt

60g strawberries
60g sugar

How to make :
1. Prepare the dough, mix everything except butter. Put it in bread maker, knead it until dough start become elastic. Then knead in the butter until dough become soft and smooth. Cover it and let it proof until double (approximately 1.5 hours)
