Babies in blankets
Posted June 18, 2012on:
Today we had a rough morning at the dentist. Miss G screamed like someone was stepping on her head for almost the entire visit. I decided that a bland lunch would be best for her just in case her gums are sore. I happened to have some Smart Dog brand soy dogs I needed to use up. I decided to make babies. NO, not THAT way, with crescent rolls! I had a roll of the Immaculate Baking Company’s crescent rolls in the fridge. I sliced the hotdogs in half and then lengthwise since my kids are still susceptible to choking. Then I used my little face cutters to poke small faces at the top. Then I just took each little triangle starting at the small end and wrapped them up in their pastry blankets. I cut a small strip off of each end piece to make the “blanket” wrap around the baby’s head. Then I just baked according to the instructions on the label (about 14 minutes at 350 degrees).
These are the cutters I used for my face cutouts available at Bento USA by All Things For Sale.
Here’s how the babies turned out. A bit sloppy, but the kids loved them!
Miss G’s has 2 babies in blankets with bear shaped cucumbers and a slice of an apple with star cutouts. In the yellow star is ketchup for dipping.
Miss A’s version has sliced strawberries, apple cutouts with the star pieces from Miss G’s lunch added for color and a small cup of ketchup too.
