Find out how to make these Instagram worthy treats! Making gorgeous unicorn or mermaid toast is easier than you think!
4 slices dark whole grain bread, toasted
8 oz of cream cheese, separated
food colors of choice or natural alternatives (see post)
assorted fruit like blueberries and strawberries
Lay the toast on your work surface and spread a thick layer of plain cream cheese on top.
With the remaining cream cheese separated into small bowls, add 1-2 drops of gel food color in your desired colors in each bowl. Stir to combine and add more color to get your desired shade.
Now have fun – roughly spread different colored cream cheese onto the toasts. Start slow (a little color goes a long way) and make sure you spread each color in the same direction. The more the colors mix, the more they will turn into one uniform color (this is how I messed up my first 2 toasts). The white cream cheese base will make it easier to swirl each color, if you choose.
Top with sprinkles, blueberries or strawberries, nuts, or edible flowers. If you like sweet cream cheese, drizzle some honey on top and enjoy!
Some fun color combinations are blue & purple, blue & green, green & yellow, yellow, orange and red, red & purple.
Try to keep the colors in the same family. Combinations like red & green, purple & yellow, blue & orange are a fast way to get to brown. Tread carefully!
