Tastemade Japan has a step-by-step video on the preparation of the Japanese Fruit Flower Sandwich. It will guide you through the process of preparing the cream spread, cutting of the fruits into the right shapes, and how to place them onto the bread before cutting them. Don't worry if you don't understand Japanese. The steps are really easy to follow and self-explanatory.
