Super Bowl Sunday - The Cheeseheads
These little cheeseheads were simple to make and I used the leftover cuttings as wel,l just as I use all my leftovers from polymer clay. None of them go to waste...these will go to waist. The base for the heads were cut from lavosh bread I bought at Trader Joe's yesterday. I cut the pointed head shapes from two large rectangles of lavosh and saved the trimmings. I heated those trimmings up to make little crackers.
To cut the cheese rounds, I used the rinsed out can from the olives to make perfect circles out of cheese slices. I used it as a cutter just like I use circular cutters for my polymer clay. After slicing up a few black olive for the eyes, a couple of shrimp for noses and some pieces of a red pepper for the mouths, I was done. I was laughing all the time I was making the little faces and I imagine it would be a cute project for moms to do with their kids for parties. They do look a little on the gruesome side, but they're still fun. I already put them in at 400 degrees (baking not broiling) just to secure the cheese to the bread, and later on they'll just be reheated so I don't have to miss any of the game.
Go Packers Go!
