This year I have 6 new themed meals for Easter. I had fun with Easter Egg shaped food, chicks, and an English Muffin lamb. See here for other Easter themed food.
I often make and share shaped bread. For these Easter egg breads I stuffed them with a cube of mozzarella when I shaped them.

I wove thinly sliced carrot and then cut it with an egg shaped cookie cutter. Then I carefully transferred it to my bowl. It was easier to make than I expected and fun to eat.
Container: Kokeshi box
Top Tier: Tea bag
Left Tier: Rice and green peas, egg shaped woven carrot, cheese chick
Right Tier: Radish, grapefruit, Vans Blueberry Walnut Granola, alfalfa sprouts
I consider this one unsuccessful but it makes me laugh. The chick’s eye and too much of the color green are what I think is the problem with this one. But perhaps you can adapt some of the ideas to better use.
Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.
Contents: Broccoli, turmeric rice, candy eye, radish, sugar snap peas, apple, alfalfa sprouts
I made this cute lamb with a cookie cutter and English Muffin. Inside the Lego box is Peanut butter to spread to make a sandwich.
Container: Book Bento Box
Contents: Angel hair (yarn), kiwi, broccoli, carrot, English Muffin (lamb) alfalfa sprouts
A simple cheese garnish can make a meal special. I placed cheddar cheese egg shapes on top of my macaroni salad (made with Greek yogurt).

My Mom sent these Easter Egg Cookie Cutters and Press from Williams Sonoma as an early Easter present. They made wonderful sandwiches.

I hope that you now have some ideas for making your Easter food cute. Please share if you make something.
