And lastly, add a few little white dots for sesame seeds on top.

First, start with the plate. For the plate, cut out a circle of white clay. You can add more detail if you want, but it isn't necessary. Next, add the spaghetti. For the spaghetti, roll up some tan clay until it is thin and even, then pile it onto the plate. Lastly, add the spaghetti sauce and some meatballs. You can even add a little fork if you want!

Step 9: The Loaf of Bread
