Home cooking is back and looks like it’s going to stay for a while. We are looking at changing things up making ordinary food fun and Japan seems to always be the master of that! From different decorations for bento boxes to wagashi (a Japanese style dessert). Each is carefully designed in detail and full of visual impact. If we dig into their food habit deeper, there is a trace of European influence reflecting on some of the delicious creations they make. As the title of this article have brought you here, yes, we are switching up our normal boring sandwiches today into fruit flower sandwiches.
Thanks to the team at Tastmade Japan, we can follow the video to make these scrumptious looking sandwiches in a few simple steps!

Grab a piece of glad wrap and place it on top of your working space. Place the slice of bread on the glad wrap and spread a generous amount of cream on the slice of bread then put the fruits on the top, and cover it up with more cream.
Cover the sandwich up with glad wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
To finish off, cut the sandwich diagonally.
