Shibuya Toast

1 pc Thick Toast (I baked a loaf of bread)
Ice Cream
Kit Kat
Mint Leaves
Chocolate flakes/sauce
Anything you can think of

1. Cut out the inner white bread & you get an empty bread box.
2. Cut them into cubes/squares (from the inner bread that you dig out in Step 1.). Spread some butter on them and toast it.
3. Toast the empty bread box.
4. Quickly fan all the bread to cool them down.
5. Fill the empty bread box with the bread cubes, topped with ice cream, fruits, nuts, pocky, kit kat, and anything else that is suitable.

1. Do it quickly or else the ice cream will be melting away...
2. If you are not baking the bread, you can purchase thick bread slices from bakeries like Four Leaves, or similar Japanese Bakeries. Then butter both sides, toast them, cut them into cubes. Stack like 3 to 4 layers, and they should look as good too.
