How. Cute. Are. They?
Sometimes…I want to take her lunch and display it on my mantel. But these are so cute and turned out just how I pictured! I saw a snail bento on pinterest the other day but it was flat and the snail shell part was made out of cheese. I wanted 3d snails so after some experimenting I came up with these guys. I love them
Here’s how I did it…I flattened out 1 piece of bread with a rolling pin. Cut off 3 sides of the crust and left one side to be the top of the snail’s head. Spread a thin layer of almond butter and a thin layer of jam but stopping a bit before the top. Rolled up the bread and then I sliced it into 3 sections and then molded the top a bit it to stick it’s head up like shown. I used a toothpick and put a tiny blop of almond butter on the back of the eyes and the fruit leather mouths and pushed them into the bread. I cut some carrot antennas and stuck them on the back the same way
It really wasn’t hard! She also has some yogurt raisins, carrots and cucumbers (and dipping as she calls it in the blue container) and strawberries and grapes.
