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