As most parents, I am always searching for a way to get more fruits and vegetables into my kids. I have found that making their food fun and exciting can get them to eat something they may otherwise be uninterested in. I have total Mom Envy over the amazing creations I see on instagram. Kitchen Fun with my 3 Sons always has some great inspiration (I get nothing for sharing her site, she has no idea who I am. I just really love her creations).
When it came to making Lambie, I found that I needed very few ingredients. Sprinkles have become a staple in my kid food creations. They are the perfect for small details. I used black sprinkles from my Halloween pack as her eyes lashes and a pink confetti sprinkle for her nose from my spring pack. Then I just used some watermelon, raisins, and whipped cream. (Instructions below)
- Small seedless Watermelon
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate or Black sprinkles
- Pink confetti sprinkle
- Cut a large thin slice of seedless watermelon.
- Cut into an oval (slightly wider than it is tall)
- Place in the middle of the plate.
- Use raisins to make eyes and mouth.
- Place small black or chocolate sprinkles as eye lashes.
- Place 1 pink confetti sprinkle for a nose.
- Use whipped cream to decorate around Lambie’s head, slightly covering the top of her head in a straight line (as shown above).
- Use the whipped cream to create 2 ears that are low on her face (as above).
- Cut small ovals out of the watermelon left for the pink of Lambie’s ears. Place on the whipped cream ears.
- Cut 2 small triangles out of watermelon. Place on top of her head on the whipped cream to create a bow.
