Feel like getting arty with toast? This simple snack pays homage to famed Russian painter, Wassily Kandinsky and it’’s rather tasty, too.

You don’’t need much skill to make this fun and arty toast, so it’’s a great activity to try with little ones, and a lovely way to get them interested in classic art.


  • 1 slice bread per person
  • Butter (optional)
  • A selection of hams, cheeses and anything else edible and sliced
  • Cookie cutters in three sizes (I used a piping nozzle for the smallest circles)

    Cut out six rectangles (large enough to cover one slice of bread), plus six large circles, six medium circles and six small circles. Vary the meat/cheese types for full artistic effect.

    01 - step 1

    Toast your bread to perfection (I used Warburtons as it’’s the perfect fit for this Breville toaster and browns evenly all over). Butter, if desired.

    02 - step 2

  • 3

    Layer up the cheese and meats; –rectangle, large circle, medium circle, small circle, repeat! Place each of them a little wonky and off-centre, just like Kandinsky did.

    Lay your rectangles carefully on your toast to create your completed work of art and enjoy!
