September National Honey Month Themed Food

Bee Hive waffle with melon bees

September is National Honey Month so I have some food featuring honeycombs, beehives and bees. Yes I took liberty with the definition of beehive and honeycomb for the sake of having fun with food.

This first meal came about with help from my 13 year old niece and 11 year old nephew. I love getting help with brainstorming bento ideas. My niece suggested cutting a waffle with a cookie cutter. My nephew suggested making a beehive from a waffle. I used this cookie cutter set.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Cantaloupe bees

Bottom Left: Pistachios with “Bzzz” written with food safe marker

Right Side: Homemade waffles cut with beehive shaped cookie cutter, maple syrup in small yellow container (you could also use honey), bee pick

Bee Hive Bread with cheese bees

When making this homemade bread beehive I made small balls of dough and put them close together. Very easy!

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Sliced peaches with a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning and a little bit of honey

Top Right: Carrots and bell pepper (supposed to be flowers)

Bottom Right: Beehive shaped homemade bread with edible bees (cheese, almond slices, food safe marker details)

Pineapple Bees food

I made these easy pineapple bees as part of a Back to School post but I wanted to share them again here since I love them so much.

I used fresh pineapple and cut chunks to my desired side. I then painted on some melted chocolate with a special paintbrush I use only for food. I cut dried pineapple in half and attached to the pineapple chunk with more melted chocolate. I was able to buy a small amount of dried pineapple in the bulk section of my grocery store.
