Frozen Olaf Soup & Pancake

This has been a crazy week for me, I'm so glad it's the weekends. I've a new tool to share next week and there will be a giveaway as well, will update details next week. You can also follow me on Instagram (@bentomonsters), as I'll likely update there a little earlier.

Other than IT's competition that has been keeping us busy this week, we've been dog sitting, lol. This is the adorable schnauzer that I looked after for the past few days. She belongs to my sis. My parents and sis were out of town at the same time, so she stayed over at our place.

I'll be sharing more Olaf food creations in this post, the very cute snowman from the Disney movie, Frozen. My boys simply adore Olaf, they asked for more Olaf food art, since he's rather easy to make, I have no reason to say no to them.

Olaf is made from a toasted wrap, more details on the rest of the ingredients later. I often get questions on how I did my soup art, so I decided to take some step-by-step photos for this time, hope they are useful. :)

This Olaf pancake was for my boys' breakfast during the school holidays last June. I used whipped cream and melted chocolate to draw the details, added on an orange slice for his nose.

This pancake idea is actually inspired by the Olaf pancake made by Kitchen Fun With My 3 sons. Click HERE to check out her very cute pancake.

I made Olaf using a piece of wrap.

Cut out Olaf head, body and feet from the wrap. I simply used a pair of scissors to trim out the shapes. However, you can also print/draw out Olaf on a piece of paper, place that on your wrap and use it as a guide to cut out the parts. Place these on a baking trap, toast in the oven at 180 degrees celcius for around 5 minutes till crisp. Don't throw away the leftover cut outs, you can cut them into small pieces, toast them in the same way and use as soup or salad toppings.

Cut out 2 circles from wrap for Olaf eye. I used the puncher above to punch out his eyes from nori. His eyebrows were cut out with a pair of scissors. Use some mayo to "stick" the parts together.

Cut out mouth from nori and teeth from wrap, and again, "stick" them on with some mayo.

Cut out Olaf's nose from carrot.

Punch out nori for the buttons using the above puncher.

Cut out Olaf's hand and hair from a piece of boiled kombu.

Alternatively, you can also try using herbs like dill for Olaf's hand instead.

Assemble the parts on your soup, and there, you have your very own bowl of Olaf soup. If you need a recipe for carrot soup, click HERE to check out one that I shared previously.
