Welcome Elves!!

Our Elves, Dasher and Cupcake, come every year on December 1st. The girls have been counting down the days until they come. So, why not have a bento lunch to celebrate their arrival back from the North Pole!

Here are what Cupcake and Dasher look like:

The Cupcake inspired lunch:

The Dasher inspired lunch:

  • 2 Elf shaped sandwiches (stacked). Their hats are provolone cheese that I painted (using a paint brush) with gel food coloring. Their cheeks are also food coloring that I painted on. Their eyes and mouth are cucumber peel and a bit of extra bread for their noses and ears. Their hair is made from the crust of the bread.

  • Strawberries and blueberries with a candy cane pick

  • Carrots with ranch

  • Reeses peanut butter bells


  1. They are adorable! I bet they loved them! :)

  2. Those are great!! My girls are super excited about their elf coming back tonight, too!

  3. Cute! I love that they represent the elves. Fun!
