When you’ve been having a whale of a good time with your Baleen Whale crate from Kiwi Co., you continue the fun with these adorable whale bread rolls. These would be fantastic in a bento box, if you’re into lunchtime art!
To start, Travis made ovals about the size of his fist from store-bought bread dough, which we arranged on a baking sheet.
Shape smaller portions of dough into the fins and tails. (Note: he had trouble shaping the tails, so I made a rough V-shape for each, which he stuck to the whale bodies).
Next we pressed a raisin into each “whale” for an eye; make sure to press these in quite deep, or they will pop out during baking.
Use kitchen scissors to snip a small slice into the front of each whale, and pull open slightly to make a mouth.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.
Let cool, then poke a hole in the top for each blowhole – a straw worked nicely.
As the finishing touch, I cut Daiya cheese sticks into small slices, and divided these into thirds to be the spouting water; carefully insert one water spout into each blowhole.
Thar she blows!
