Cute Food

26/02/2010

There are so many unique and adorable ways to prepare food, and thanks to the wonders of ‘teh intarwebz,’ you can learn how to make these delicious darling treats!


YES! This is awesome! If you buy these particular vegetable molds and slip them around a baby cucumber that is still growing, you can shape the vegetable into a star or a heart to sweeten up your salad. The molds are pretty expensive but I bet you can get crafty enough to make your own with a little tin and a hammer, using a cookie cutter as a guide. I don’t have a garden in our new house yet but as soon as spring comes along I’ll be preparing the ground for growing all kinds of vegetables. You can be guaranteed I’ll be molding my cukes into adorable shapes!


Chocolate dipped fortune cookies should be easy enough for anyone to make. Melt some chocolate in a double boiler then dip the side of a cookie in, roll it in some sprinkles, and lay it on a sheet of wax paper to cool. Fortune cookies are always fun but this will dress them up for being served as charming party desserts. Why didn’t I think of this?


All you need is a cookie cutter and some powered sugar to take your pb&j sandwich to an adorable new level. Simply use the cookie cutter on some pieces of bread then spread with your filling and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Better yet, make the sandwich first then cut it for a nice even ring of color around the treat. You can use any shape for any event or holiday, and, depending on the filling, you can sprinkle with a variety of toppings like shredded coconut, powdered cocoa, chocolate flakes, or other jams. Delicious!


Sweet little marshmallow buddies will add a touch of cute to a sweet party delight. I’m not exactly sure how they made these faces but I can guess that it must be with food coloring and a fine-tipped decorating brush. (You have that just laying around, right?) You can’t deny that these treats are painfully adorable. You could even dip individual toasted marshmallows in some of that melted chocolate from the fortune cookies, roll in the sprinkles, then paint on the faces for some single-serving mallow-people desserts.

Plenty more cute foods behind the break:


I’m not sure how they did this either, but it looks magnificent! I’m especially wow-ed by the Saturn artwork. I’m sure this involves a steady hand a little bit of luck, but it will be fun to practice! If you know how to do this, please share your finer secrets!


Here’s a great way to love the heel slices from your loaves of bread – turn them into giraffe spots! If this looks complicated, just relax and follow the lines of the shapes. This is a great way to entertain kids and get them to eat a healthy sandwich, because I’m betting that if you made this you could fill it with nearly anything and it will be eaten with pleasure.


The special delight of these cookies isn’t in the flavor or the shape but in the decorating. You can bake sugar cookies like normal, cut them into half-circles, and decorate with colored frosting. If you don’t want to buy a bunch of frosting, you can use food coloring to mix small batches of your colors. For an even cuter touch, you can make the watermelon seeds out of raisins or slivers of chocolate.

These are all (mostly) easy ways to decorate and dress up your party foods or everyday snacks, adding a little cute sweetness to the mix. Don’t be afraid to explore and try new things with your food!
