Now, I am not normally a fan of face-on-food. I feel a strong rebelliousness against the idea that kiddie food needs to be kiddified. The fervent mango-passion that's gripping my son of late is not dependent on funny mango faces, it's all about sheer mango deliciousness. And I think food can excite kids because tasty food IS exciting.
I shall now get off my soapbox, and admit to my Apple Bear. With complete disregard for everything I've just said I think, when my daughter asked if I could make her apple 'surprising' this is what I did to it. It went down VERY well, perhaps making me think I should reconsider my position on face-food...Come to think of it, my husband does often make Em a 'rabbit shaped out of an egg' which is this Fried Egg Bread, but rabbit shaped - technically face-food I think. What do you think? What level of kiddification is acceptable??
If you want to recreate this masterpiece, it's just plonked in a cupcake case, the eyes are raisins, the nose is a dried cranberry and the ears are almonds. They're stuck on with the universal food glue known as Nutella.
