The man in the moon

Posted on: September 27, 2011

I love cookie cutters.  If you’re running short on time in the morning, like I usually am, it’s a great way to make a cute lunch with minimal effort.  I also found the tiny star cutters in Michael’s in the cake decorating aisle.  They are fondant cutters.  She had her usual peanut butter & jelly with a royal icing eye (purchased through Amazon), honey wheat pretzel braids to dip in her hummus, and mozzarella cheese stars.  Her fruit bento is manadarin oranges, watermelon stars and blackberries.

Little A has been sort of an enigma.  It’s the toddler thing.  One day she’s crazy about a food and the next she flat out refuses it.  I have to keep trying new things.  Today she had the same star theme for her lunch.   The heart bento has mandarin oranges on the left with mozzarella cheese stars and watermelon stars on the right.  In the blue bento she has Annie’s Organic Macaroni & cheese shells on the bottom with carrots and Applegate ham stars on top.

Cute! Love the start theme and how colorful they are. :)

I just found this blog, awesome! How did you make the tiny stars? Where did you get them?

I would love to find little fish too…

I buy most of my tiny cutters at http://allthingsforsale.com. They have the best bento selection and fair prices too. I think they call them ham & cheese cutters. Hope that helps!

Oops, and now that I’m re-reading my post, I got these at Michael’s craft store in the cake decorating section. They are a set of metal star shaped fondant cutters. Allthingsforsale has mostly plastic which are affordable and don’t rust.
