French Toast Flowers! | 31 Crafty Flowers in 31 Days - Day 27

Day Twenty-Seven-We're still in flower heaven!



Today's flower tutorial for 31 Crafty Flowers in 31 Days  is fun and yummy and a perfect way to celebrate the arrival of summer! 

I think it would be so fun to make these from French Toast, but for simplicity in the tutorial I just used regular toast which is a little quicker and turned out cute too!

 Here's what you need to get started:
Gather supplies
-Whole wheat bread
-Decorative Sugar
-Flower shaped cookie cutter
-soda bottle cap
-French toast recipe & ingredients (if making french toast)

Step One

Step one-cut butter

While bread is toasting (or french toast is cooking) cut a 1/4 inch pat of butter for each toast flower you will be making.

Step Two


Step one-cut butter2

Step one-cut butter3

Use your soda cap to make little round pats of butter for the center of your toast flowers. 

This works best if the butter is firm but not rock hard, so let it sit out for a few minutes before beginning.

Step Three

Step two-cut toast

Once your toast is ready, center the cookie cutter over it and press firmly. 

Before you lift the cookie cutter, pull away the scraps of toast on the outside. 


Don't throw these scraps away!  Throw them in a baggie and store them in the freezer.  The next time you need bread crumbs for a recipe just toss the scraps into the food processor and you've got homemade bread crumbs! (You can do this with the heels of the bread as well.)

Step Four

Step three-add butter center

Now add your pat of butter to the center of your toast flower!

Step Five

Step four-add sprinkles For a special treat, you can sprinkle sanding sugar or decorative sugar on the butter centers.

Step Six

 Step five-cut leaves

Cut freehand leaves with your knife.

Step Seven


Now put together your toasty flowers! 

This would make a fun birthday or holiday breakfast treat! 

For dad, on Father's Day, you could use a fish or sports themed cutter!

Have Fun!
