St. Patrick's Day Cucumber Hats

I made these fun cucumber hats for work awhile back- not with the clovers though.

I love this little set of "Jelly & Aspic" cutters for punching out tiny shapes- usually in the middle of cookies or to make flowers from Airheads for cupcakes. Even though the set has a clover, I like the one without the stem. You get similar sets at Amazon or buy the fondant cutters at the craft store.



I tested American cheese cut at the deli for the hat bands first but the per-wrapped singles drape over the cucumber sections more easily.

Cut 1.5" sections of an English cucumber.
Halve them lengthwise and lay the pieces flat on a plate with the peel side up.

Cut a straight section of the cucumber to make the brim for each hat.

Add a thin slice of American cheese band and  a square of cheddar to make the buckle.

Punch out a few clovers (or use a small flower punch) from the flat slice of cucumber then cut and add a stem.




 Happy St. Patrick's Day!
