Cutting cheese to fun shape is easy if you have the right cutter set or you can also use a small knife with a help of toothpick to hand cut the shape you like by yourself. In this post, I will show how easy it is to use a cutter set that will help making food cute easy and fast.
To cut cheese on the right hand side, I use to this karappa bento cutter set for the outer face (also can be used to create lion’s fat or a sun shape) and this doll bento cutter set (for the fun smily face) Tip: Use toothpick to take out the small cheese that may stick to the cutter when cleaning.
Same way of cutting with the little monkey face in the middle. I use this face cutter set. This is a very great set if you like to make funny or smiley faced cheese as it comes with many different face designs or sizes. Tip: Most bento cutters can also be used to cut fruit leather, ham, and soft-boiled thin-sliced vegetable.
For the bear cheese on the left hand side, I actually use a bear-shaped rice mold to cut cheese. Even though the rice mold is not designed to cut cheese but with a help of pushing at the back (using your fingertip to walk through on the cutter line) it can be cut with clean line as well. The rice mold comes with the doll bento cutter set that I use earlier. For the bear face, I adapt the rabbit face from the rabbit face cutter plate.
For other cute accessories you see in the lunch, I use cute bento picks and Japanese baran sheet to decorate. You can choose from over 100 different designs of bento food picks that fits your style or the theme of your lunch. So simple for anyone to create this. Just stick the food pick to the food you like
Here are the tools I used.
