Pooh Bear Toast

I made some mushroom soup for breakfast during the school vacation and served it with some toast. I will be sharing the mushroom soup recipe in this post. :)

I used a Pooh Bear cutter to cut and imprint on the bread before toasting it.

This is a actually a cookie cutter, but it works on bread too. :) It's one of the first bento tool I bought when IT was still a toddler, and that was like almost 8 years ago. O.O
