Brekkie Space Shuttle
I was planning on creating a rocket but then as I began it morphed into a space shuttle.
I have lovely memories of a really fun trip to Cape Canaveral I made with two friends of mine Jamey and Shawn many, many moons ago when we were lucky enough to see a shuttle housed in its giant hangar.
This is really no more complicated than many of my other fun food breakfast designs although it may seem at first glance to be a little intimidating.
For me it was all worth it as the boys were wide-eyed with pleasure when I showed them.
– 4 Wheat bricks (one is only partially used)
– Yoghurt – I used home-made Greek style
– Raisins/Dates – for detail
– Coconut for sky
1. Place one wheat-brick for the base of the shuttle and then carefully cut another for the cone at the top (they cut surprisingly well with a sharp knife).
2. Then cut a wheat-brick in half to make the wings.
3. Cover with yoghurt.
4. Add a front window. I used chopped raisins.
5. Then I used a knife to score some detail into the yoghurt.
And cut some dates for the base of the shuttle.
6. Added some detail on the wings with raisins and a date nose cone.
7. Coconut makes a great starry sky.
8. Then I made a couple of yoghurt stars.
9. And for the final flourish a tail.
