Step-By-Step Tutorial - How to make a Cinnamon Sandwich

Cinnamon the Dog
Today I shall share a tutorial on how to make a Sanrio Cinnamon sandwich -

Tools Required : 
1. Mental egg shaper ring
2. A pair of sharp scissors
3. A tweezer to pick up pieces of small seaweed
4. A round medicine bottle cover or any small circular shaped object

Ingredients :
1. 2 to 3 slices of white bread
2. Jam or any kind of fillings
3. Dried seaweed

Cut the bread with a mental ring
Step 1 : Put filling between 2 slices of bread. Bend the mental egg shaper into desired shape and cut the bread as shown in picture below.

Step 2: Use a circular object and cut out a semi-circle on the remaining bread. You can use a medicine bottle cap as well.

Step 3: Use a butter knife or scissor the cut out the shape of the ears. You can also use a pair of scissor to cut. You need to make 2 ears so it is up to you if you want to use a 3rd piece of bread to make another ear or you may just separate the 2 layers into 2 ears(in the picture below). If you are using single layer, it could be left plain or you may wish to apply some jam under it. 

Step 4: Slot the ears between the 2 slices of bread to make sure the size is correct (as shown in picture below). 

Step 5 : Use the scissors to cut out the shape of the mouth and the eyes. I used a seaweed puncher for the eyes since the size is right. If you do not have a seaweed puncher, just fold the seaweed into half and cut out the shape of the eyes. By folding the seaweed into 2, you will get a pair of symmetrical eyes. 

Step 6 : You can prepare Step 1 to 5 in advance. Normally, I will do the preparation work at night after tucking my kids to bed. Below is a picture of the 'mouths' and 'eyes'. I will usually make extra pieces(just in case I drop or accidentally destroy it) and store it in their sandwich box for use the following morning. You can skip this step if you are making it straight away.

Step 7 : Pick up the 'eyes' and 'mouth' using the tweezers. Dap some of jam or mayonnaise behind the seaweed and 'paste' it on the bread. 

Step 8 : Put the ears together and placed it in your sandwich box. It's done! Lastly, you may want to dap some strawberry jam on the cheeks as blusher. 

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
