Cat Sandwich Bento with Hummus, veggies, and fruit

“Mommy, I like cats,” my daughter told me the other day. Since she changes her mind as often as her socks, I quickly made use of the sandwich cutters I won on an online competition a while back.

Cat Bento with fruits and veggies

I used my favorite leaf bento picks for the tomatoes and cut up some carrots into hearts, and added some halved grapes (she is only 3.5). I then cut carved the apple into a flower (and placed it in some lemon water to prevent it from turning black overnight) and carved the cucumber as well.

For the flower: I cut out small triangles from the top to make the top of the flowers, and then made small cuts on both sides to create leaves. I pulled them out a bit to stick out.

For the cucumber: I cut a chunk of cucumber that would fit into the mold. I then made straight lines vertically and removed the skin every other line so that the cucumber was striped. Once I finished, I sliced the cucumber, placed it into the mold, and then moved every other slice so that a square without skin was always next to a square with skin, which is what caused the checkerboard look on the cucumbers.

The sandwich mold I used is by CuteZCute and you can buy it on eBay here. It has 4 molds: The cat, a bear, a frog, and a pig.
