This is a really cute and fun lunch that will be perfect for the little princess (or princess fan!) in your life. My daughter loves all things girly and thought this princess lunch was just fantastic. I’m pretty positive this will be a lunch that will be requested again and again. Here’s how you can make it at home.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • Sandwich filling of choice—I used peanut butter
  • 1 twisty Cheesestring
  • 1 slice of yellow apple
  • 1 slice of mozza cheese
  • 1 thin slice of red pepper
  • Sharp kitchen knife
  • Drinking glass
  • Black food marker (or black food colouring and a toothpick)


1. Cut your 2 slices of bread into circles using your drinking glass.

2. Spread your peanut butter (or another sandwich filling of your choice) between your 2 slices of bread to make a sandwich. Place this sandwich on a plate.

3. Un-twist your twisty Cheesestring and place the cheese twists around the sandwich to make hair for your princess.

4. Using your knife, or a small circle cutter, cut 2 circles out of your slice of mozza cheese. Place these 2 cheese circles on your sandwich for the eyes. To make the dots in the eyes, either use a black food-safe marker, or use some black food colouring and a toothpick. Dot on 2 eyes.

5. Using your knife, carve a princess crown out of your slice of yellow apple. Place this princess crown on your princess.

6. Finally, take your red pepper slice and place it on your princess sandwich for a lovely smile.

It’s a perfect princess lunch! And don’t think that I forgot my little prince either—I’ll share my “lunch for a prince” next week.
