Made tree with green tea french toast and santa with strawberries.
I used Nijiya market original "Tofu bread" for the toast. It's easier to color if the bread is more white.
Use green tea soymilk to make french toast instead of regular milk.
Cut the toast with different sizes of star shaped cookie cutters.
