Cute Animal Plate Cutters
One of the cute little goodies I picked up from the Bento Bloggers & Friends Treasure hunt last year. . .
I haven't tried Miss M on much rice so thought I'd make a sushi-sandwich to try these little cutters on.
I removed the crust & used the rice mould as a guide for size
I picked up a tip from Cristi over at Bent On Better Lunches about flattening your bread first, so I got out the rolling pin
I added ham to the inside so I could wrap cheese on the outside (and then did the opposite later on)
Ham sushi sandwich (which turned out a little skinnier than I thought - next time I might do the double sandwich like Cristi does)
Just a mater of line up & press down the cutter
It cuts beautifully
I did struggle a little to remove the cheese from the cutter a little & the cheese tore between the mouth & eyes
You can see my little bunny didn't really last very well, and the sandwiches really need to be a bit fatter to show off the characters better.
At the back is the bear, then left to right is bunny, chicken and seal.
Not bad for a first try, I think & I look forward to experimenting with these further.
