how to make a birthday party hat sandwich

Cut the lunch meat the same shape and size as the bread. Layer meat on one piece of bread and spread with your child’s favorite condiment. Top with the second piece of bread.

Cut the orange cheese slices into thin strips. Cut a piece of white cheese into a thicker curved strip, to fit along the curved part of the bread. Then cut a pom pom for the top of the hat out of white cheese too.

Use a bit of the condiment as “glue” and attach the strips of orange cheese across the hat creating stripes. Cut off excess cheese.

Personalize the white strip of cheese by pressing the alphabet stamps into the cheese or by writing with a food coloring marker.
