Birthday Bento

Yesterday was the baby's 2nd birthday! I can't believe he is growing so fast. His lunch included his favorite red monster, Elmo.




Lunch consists of chicken breast, cantaloupe, mango, blueberries, & raspberries, mini pb &j's cut into a rabbit and bear, and a baby bell elmo, made with swiss cheese and nori accents. He picked the nori off and ate it first : ) Pooh (another favorite, he had to get included also) is made from american cheese.

And of course, to go along with the day's theme, he had an Elmo birthday cake. I considered buying an a special Elmo-shaped pan, but decided it would be super easy to make using a round cake pan and 3 cupcakes. So here he is!

and the cupcakes his sister decorated:

Hi Anonymous,

Do you mean the decorations for the elmo cake? If so, let me know. I have step by step photos of the process if you want me to post them. ; )
