CutezCute Puppy Love

One of my favorite tools for making sandwiches look super cute, super fast is the CuteZCute cutter. I love that it is so versatile, even beyond its original cut out options. You can see lots of ideas on how to use the cutter on Pinterest, as well as the product website, of course. I realized today that the cutter makes an adorable dog, and there are multiple ways you can do it.

Using the stamp option, you can press your design into the bread, and then toast, or in this case, grill for a grilled cheese. In the lunchbox below, I used the cutter for the shape of the head, but then cut additional pieces to lay on top in a contrasting color cheese (and fruit leather for the tongue).

So, what pieces did I use to make this CuteZCute puppy? I used the outline main cutter, of course. For the eyes, I used the cat eye (sideways), and a panda eye for the eye patch. For the mouth, I sued the panda's mouth/nose and the cat's nose for the tongue. I used the side and then, rounded edge, of the main cutter to create the ears. Simple, cute, and yummy!
