Today’s theme was vampires.  The face was cut from a circle cutter and then the top of the head & wings were made of pumpernickel bread.  The eyes are royal icing (pre-made), mouth of fruit leather and red fangs were cut from juicy gummy treats that ooze.  Above his head are cheese bats, below are skewered grape tomatoes, red seedless grapes and edamame.  To the bottom right is a pair of gummy fangs and to the bottom left are prune bats (and yes they eat them!).  I also used an owl and moon cupcake sugar toppers which I purchased from my favorite local cupcake shop, Cupcakes-a-go-go (https://www.facebook.com/CupcakesagogoSRQ) or http://www.cupcakesago-go.com/.  The bento is in a LunchBots stainless bento box.

My 1 year old had a scaled down version for her lunch.  The same vampire face with cheese bats, edamame and sliced red grapes below.  She also had a pouch of applesauce.

And some mandarins with a sugar pumpkin, also from Cupcakes-a-go-go.

So I may be a bit overexcited about fall & Halloween this year.  I admit it.  I guess living in Florida makes me wish for the leaves & cooler weather every now & then.  Miss G has 2 owls on a branch for her lunch.  The owls were a simple cookie cutter with royal icing eyes, a carrot triangle beak and carrot feet sitting on honey wheat pretzel braids.  They are surrounded by blueberries, raspberries, black seedless grapes, blackberries and 2 pumpkin shaped strawberries.

Baby sister had the smaller version of the same lunch.  She had blueberry eyes instead and a pumpkin shaped watermelon surrounded by berries.  She also had hummus and wheat pretzels not pictured here.
