How To Make Mermaid Toast

How To

Toast the bread.

Keep half the cream cheese plain and divide the rest into three, using the food colouring to create three different colours of cream cheese.

Spread a layer of plain cream cheese on each toast, top with a layer of coloured cream cheese, then a few drops of raspberry or blackcurrant coulis or sprinkle with blue or green spirulina. Spread with a palette knife. Sprinkle with glitter and serve immediately!

Tip: To make them even more fairytale-like, you can add dragon fruit slices cut into flower or star shapes using a cookie cutter, or cucumber shapes coloured with a drop of blackcurrant coulis.
