You know whats better than playing with your food. Making your food into incredibly cute animals! Most people reserve adorable food crafts for kids but young adults in college get a kick out of them too.
Here is the most detailed instructions I could find, I got them off of Pinterest:
Looks so easy! But I am not making bread from scratch because who has time for that.
So the only materials I needed for this project was scissors and uncooked dinner rolls.
Follow the instructions for whatever brand of dinner rolls you buy. Mine has to be thawed and proofed before I could us them.
Once that was over they looked like this
Once they were pliable rolls I took the scissors and cut them at the tops to make the ears
And they strated to kind of look like bunnies
When they all had ears I began working on the eyes. The instructions say you can use a grain of pepper to give them eyes. I tried this and found it extremely difficult and time consuming.
So I improvised and started using a tooth pick. Much easier
Once that was done I had a whole tray things that looked like this
Not quite bunnies but I figured the oven would change that. Whatever they looked like they were pretty cute.
Before I popped them in the oven I gave each one a quick butter bath.
Warning: If you are someone who is a sucker for cute things (like me) don’t spend too much time looking at or bathing the bunnies. Because you will get attached! By the time I was finished bathing them they all had names….
But I put them in the oven anyway. I followed the cooking instructions for my rolls and 15 minutes later I had these things
The oven did not make them into bunnies.
They look more like cats or some strange pokemon. Either way they are still pretty cute.
I declare them catinnes! (cat+bunny).
So overall I will give this project a pass/fail. Because while it did yield adorable and delicious results it did not make bread bunnies.
I’m not sure how I would improve this project because it seems like there might be some steps missing. I would definitely be will to give it another try.
Despite being a newly discovered creature the catinnes were quite popular with my housemates. The whole tray of them didn’t make it through the night.
