Buttermilk bread roll bear

I decided to make buttermilk bread.  I then had the idea to make a small bun for the minions. It turned out pretty well I think! The recipe for it was pretty simple and did not take to much of actual working time. That is always a perk when you have 3 little ones at home all day and one in half day preschool.

I have a buttermilk bread roll in the shape of a bear's head. I sliced it and added peanut butter and jelly. The eyes and nose are pieces of cheese I used food safe markers to color. Also I have a hard boiled egg I put in the bear, car, and fish mold. Sadly the egg was not quite large enough to have the ears come out on the bear. Also I added 3 mint chocolate marshmallows as a desert.

In the other section I have 2 strawberry mice. There are several variations of these, but I first saw them on Bent On Better Lunches' blog. They have almonds for ears, a string cheese tail and mine are sitting on an animal cracker. I used some chocolate cream cheese to help it stick.  Also there are carrots, celery, raisins, and the minion's favorite, shredded cheese.
