Dance of the Butterflies

April 23, 2012

I received a new how to draw manga book this week and am having a blast thinking through the characters and how to translate them to food. I’m still stuck on eyes. I might need to do a study of cartoon eyes in food!

Cheese sandwiches assembled into a dancing cutie, decorated with cheese and fruit leather.

I finished the lunch with hummus butterflies, cucumber and carrot sticks for dipping and fruit.

To make this lunch I used:

Decorative Bento Cutter Ham Cheese Cutter Set 15 Facial Expression

Cora loved our Tree Hugger cutie from the other day, so I tried to turn her into a super hero

There are some really great cute n green lunches in there made by some very talented gals!

Our super hero cutie is a cheese sandwich decorated with fruit leather and more cheese. The Earth in the distance is a smushed up piece of bread. Super Tree Hugger needs some work, her eyes are kinda freaky.

The lunch is finished off with hummus and whole wheat pretzels, star fruit salad and berries and coconut yogurt for dipping.
