Cute Toasted Breads



Don't we moms want to make eating breakfast fun for the kids? I got the inspiration from Peony as she loves to make bentos and lovely toast for her grandson. Of course she used the cute Hello Kitty print for toast bread which I don't own. Then, I was thinking, wait a minute, I did buy some ice-cream sandwich molds last year at WalMart. It was on clearance for $4/pair and I just couldn't let it pass because I saw the possibility in it. Hence, I took them out from my drawer and gave it a try. It made a really nice clear print on the bread and came out great. The bonus was of course both my girls finished their toasts!



Now I know I can use this print to make pig or cow face cookies too! At first, I saw that it was great for making mini mooncakes and now I have more uses for it. I know it can be used to make cute pig and cow boiled eggs too, just need to tie it with rubber band. So, for $2 each, not too bad a toy to own right? :)

Beachlover, I bought it last year. I haven't seen it recently at WalMart too.

Thanks SIG. It is used to make ice-cream sandwich. Use the cutter to cut out cookie, place ice-cream in the middle and top with another pie of cookie and close the cap and sandwich it together. The result should be a pig/cow face sandwich ice-cream cookie. That was what I remember from the instruction paper, I never make it before. :P

Thanks Jeena!

Noobcook, for the bread, just press the print on the bread and toast. For the egg (if I remember it correctly, never make it before), after the extra-large egg is boiled, peel the shell and insert them into this mold and close the cap and tie it securely with a rubber band and place in ice-cold water for 10-15 minutes and you will have a pig/cow face with inprint boiled egg.

Thanks daphne!

Thanks my wok life.

Rita, I do like hello kitty because it's cute but not crazy with it like must have to own it that kind of way. :)

Same here Tigerfish. We prefer the piggy one too. They should draw a nose on the cow print too so that it's more obvious.

Thanks Lore!

Thanks Sig! :)

Hahaha Sue, now you know right? I need to try it with boiled egg next. ;)

Yes Ms._2 be, $4/pair is the cheapest I have seen thus far. But, I haven't seen any of these in the store this year though.
