Fun shape bread

Bake bread in fun shapes for kids

Granted you can cut a slice in any shape with a cookie cutter or knife, but for those of use without artistic abilities or SpongeBob Squarepants cookie cutters this would be slick.

Bread makers would have to come up with molds for the dough to rise/bake in, which would be about the only change from the way things are done now. If they wanted to get fancy, they could color the bread.

Suggestions: Geometric shapes (other than square/rectangle - circular bread for your bologna!), cartoon characters, letters, numbers, holiday themes.

       why do kids have all the fun? I used to write messages on their toast with the end of a spoon; endless fun!

       somebody will ask how, you indent the bread with a tool e.g. end of a spoon and then toast

       I can't think of any reason there couldn't be adult versions. Any ideas?

       Eh, none of those are what I'm imagining. I'm thinking about sliced loaf bread, white or wheat, for making kids' sandwiches. Except with a cross-sectional design or shape.

       hollowed out loaves make ideal slippers or fancy headwear for when friends or relatives drop by. Toast can also be used for novelty drink coasters.

       I wouldn't suggest asking a poll of adults what they think of this … I'm sure kids would love the easy bake version, though.

       First you make food look like humans and then you eat it. Promoting cannibalism?

       in other words, you'd want the bread to look like it had been extruded. It would sort of look (for example)like a valentine heart roll of pilbury "slice and bake" cookies, but without the "background" part.   

       I'll have a ham and swiss on heart shaped rye, please.   

       bun.
