I actually made this one as a snack, since we were going to a Nutrition Workshop for kids run by the Pacific Science Center after school. It doesn't have a lot of details, since I literally threw it together in one of our EasyLunchboxes just a few minutes before picking her up from school.

sugar snap peas and carrot flowers, strawberries
So to honor her previous kitty request, I decided to try my new Hello Kitty sandwich stampers (you can't really see the details, since I was in a hurry. Normally I place sprinkles or use food pens to accentuate the indents made by the stamper press.) I usually try to cut the bread out first, then spread the fillings on, which keeps my cutters clean. But I was in a hurry, so I just slapped on some Nutella and cut them out and pressed the imprint. Will need to toss the cutters into the little basket for washing baby bottle parts now.
The mini cupcake was from Target - I went in for some after-Easter clearance shopping. Got a dozen mini Easter cupcakes - still good for another week! Woot! (Also got a cookie cutter thing, some cute animal-shaped "eggs" that can be used as sauce or sprinkles containers, Disney and Spongebob treats boxes, and cupcake liners and picks - all at 30-50% off!)
I put the cheese nibblets in a Hello Kitty baking cup (turned inside-out so she could see the design) and used my V-blade to cut a few quick notches down the side of a carrot to make flowers. Sliced up some strawberries, and done!
She ate the cupcake and some strawberries on the way to the library (where the Nutrition Workshop was.) Since Daddy's out of town, I didn't bother with a "real" dinner, so just trotted her lunch back out after we got home. She ate everything but four little carrot flowers. And half of the eggplant that I was experimenting with. (More on that another post!)
