I shared this a few years ago in my (inactive) kid's craft blog. As you can see there, the photos are also missing from Blogger and the unfortunate thing is, I didn't have a back-up for all my photos in that blog. :(
Since tomorrow is Mother's Day, ahem, I thought I would share with you how you can 'write' a short message on your toast. I bet this neat trick will surprise your mother or your father on the coming Father's Day. Oh! And it's a great way for guys who forget birthdays, anniversaries, any important dates, to 'say' sorry. Just don't use it twice. It won't work the second time. XD
Needless to say, it's a great idea for kid's lunchbox as well!
What is needed:
How to do it:
- 1 slice of old (not stale) bread
- Alphabet cookie cutters, assorted cookie cutters
- Just press the cookie cutters on the bread.
- Don't press too hard and cut out the shape. Just hard enough to get the shape imprinted on the bread.
- Toast the bread in a toaster or oven at 180C for 7 mins, with imprint facing up.
- Turn over and toast for another 5 mins or till lightly brown.
- If you are using frying pan, toast with the bread with the imprint, facing down.
- Toast on low heat. If it's too hot, the toast will get burnt.
- If you like, turn over and toast till lightly brown.
- Remove bread from frying pan once it has brown.
- Use toast as normal.
- If you don't have cookie cutter, try using a chopstick with round end to 'write' in the bread using slight pressure.
- I used 1 day old bread because it's tougher than fresh ones. It won't be cut through as easily. However, using freshly baked bread is fine. Just be gentle. :)
PS. Have a very Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there!
