Message on a Toast

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:
  • 1 slice of old (not stale) bread
  • Alphabet cookie cutters, assorted cookie cutters
How to do it:
  1. Just press the cookie cutters on the bread.
  2. Don't press too hard and cut out the shape. Just hard enough to get the shape imprinted on the bread.
  3. Toast the bread in a toaster or oven at 180C for 7 mins, with imprint facing up.
  4. Turn over and toast for another 5 mins or till lightly brown. 
  5. If you are using frying pan, toast with the bread with the imprint, facing down. 
  6. Toast on low heat. If it's too hot, the toast will get burnt.
  7. If you like, turn over and toast till lightly brown.
  8. Remove bread from frying pan once it has brown.
  9. 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!
