Totoro Scrambled Egg & Sausage Tortilla Wrap 龙猫墨西哥饼卷



Character Food Art - Totoro Tortilla Wrap stuffed with lettuce, scrambled eggs and sausage. Instead of serving a sausage with the ordinary scrambled eggs, I thought of wrapping it up and shaped into a cute Totoro, serve with fresh fruits for a complete breakfast. It's a great way to encourage my child to eat raw vegetables.

2. Place a piece of lettuce on the tortilla wrap, layer with some mayonnaise, top with scrambled eggs and sausages.

Cute Lion King Bread



Animal Theme/ Bread Based Food Art - Cute Lion King Meat Floss Bun. Baking fun shapes bread makes bread-baking more interesting. From turtles to bears to kittens to seals and many more that I have tried, this is one of the easy animal shape bread. 


Cute Lion King Bread


I never attend any bread making classes, all I did was just trial and error. If you think you can't make it or it's too difficult for you, think again...




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In August 2014, I have made my very first lion shape meat floss bun and I wrote:



"I laughed every time I saw these pictures of the animal bun. Just came across some cute animal buns made by others and I thought my boy would love it, so I made for my boy. I made this at night after my boy went to bed because I'm not good in handling bread dough, I need full concentration when doing this. To shape the dough wasn't as easy as decorate cakes with fondant. Bread dough change it's shapes a little after final proofing and I shaped it before the final proofing, that's the challenge!



I made 2 animals... my boy's favourite hippopotamus and lion. Hippopotamus with my dad's homemade kaya filling and lion bun with pork floss. Guess which one my boy likes the most? By animal, he likes hippopotamus, but he likes to eat the lion bun more because he likes bread with pork floss. I made this with Soft Breakfast Bun recipe, the buttery soft buns. 
8 buns never too much for both of us."


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Updated: September 2017.

Revisited this blog post and I have made it again. This time, the lion definitely looks better than my first attempt 3 years ago. :) 

How I made it: 

1. Prepare the dough. Tap to get full recipe here << Soft Breakfast Bun >>

2. After step 4, shape the bread as follow:




3. After baked, use melted chocolate to draw the facial details.




4. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise around the head and tip of the tail.








5. Add chicken/ pork meat floss on the mayonnaise.
