Small Child loves Angry Birds. He doesn't play it (I deleted it from my iPhone after he got a bit too attached to it - cruel mummy!), but he loves it anyway - it's the latest 'cool thing' at school it would seem. I decided to earn myself a few extra brownie points by creating an Angry Birds lunch - inspired by some of the awesome creative Angry Birds themed foods and bento lunches that I've seen made by many of my fellow bloggers. I also thought it would be fun to try to gather some of those ideas together in the form of a linky, so if you've had fun with Angry Birds yourself do link up at the end of this post!
In this lunch Small Child had a pile of pig shaped tortilla crisps, cut from a tortilla wrap using my CuteZcute Cutter, and sprinkled with herbs in an attempt to make them look slightly green (a tutorial for tortilla crisps can be found here). I barricaded the pigs in with pretzel sticks, and added a crown pick to turn them into the 'king pig'. On the side he had raw organic carrot sticks, cucumber sticks and rolled wafer-thin roast chicken slices, all of which I threaded through angry bird cupcake rings to decorate. I used a mini circle cutter to cut wax from a mini Babybel cheese, then decorated it with pieces of cucumber and carrot plus my edible black marker pen to make a red angry bird. I popped it in a silicone cup in an attempt to stop it rolling around too much. He also had strawberries and raspberries topped with a little green pig pick.
