|Santa Clause is coming to lunch with the Bento Bloggers & Friends with our last Christmas hop for the year.|
I wanted to show you that you don't need a specific Santa cutter to create some cute Santas. Most of these ideas have come from Pinterest crafters, rather than foodies. (Although I must admit the crown beard was my desperate attempt at not having to dig through my cutters to find the hand `-^)
|I'm sure you've seen Santa made from a hand print before.|
|I used my pocket sandwich cutter as a quickie de-cruster and a hand cookie cutter. Using a slice of white and a slice of multigrain bread meant I could get some definition between the background and my feature :-)|
|Santa's hat and mouth are made from fruit leather (Roll-Ups) while his eyes and hat trim are made from cheese stick. Pupils are black sesame seeds. The rest of the chess stick got added to the lunch with this cute little food ring (Details of my tools & toys can be found on this page)|
|Again there's a hundred versions of Santa made from a heart.|
|I'd promised Miss M a Santa sandwich and couldn't find my heart cutter one night but I did find my crown cutter.|
|So some ham & cheese, a large circle cutter and my create-a-shape came to the rescue.|
|Again, using a star to create a Santa figure isn't anything new.|
|This little guy was made on toast after Miss M decided she wasn't as hungry as she originally thought. So I cut up her jammed toast, added some peanut butter & Nutella and ate that little baby myself!|
|I must admit he was quite tasty.|
Now 'hop' on Santa's Sleigh (by clicking the button below) to see what Keitha's Chaos has cooked up.
