Edible Geekery : Super Mario Power Up Lunch!

Eatsa Mario! I finally made a Super Mario lunch for my Bella, she's been asking for one ever since we got the gummy candies shown in the lunch. Inspiration finally struck when I bought some fat round cherry tomatoes and thought they'd make great Fire Flowers :)

Bella's Power Up lunch is packed in her PlanetBox & contains:
  • Cherry tomato, cheddar & mozzarella Fire Flowers
  • Galia melon initial M for Mario
  • Fig Newtons with a bento pick Super Mushroom
  • Carrot Coins (& another mushroom bento pick)
  • Galia melon Stars with chocolate chip sliver eyes
  • Turkey & cheese Mystery Block sandwich
  • A Super Mario gummy fruit candy treat

I love how the Fire Flowers turned out  To make them, I sliced a few circles from a piece of string cheese, used a round cutter to make slightly larger cheddar circles, then stacked them atop a cherry tomato speared with a flower stem bento pick. The eyes were dabbed on with food colouring marker. The rest of the piece of string cheese I used is tucked underneath the stems. 

The Mystery Block cheddar ? was made using my FunBites Cube it! cutter. Bella was super excited about her Super Mario lunch. She was having her breakfast while I was putting it together and kept walking over to peek and squeal... I hope it was as much fun to eat! It was certainly fun to make :)
