After finding some ideas for recipes on how to manipulate food into shapes and patterns online Heather began to create the bento-style lunches for her son for fun. She then posted them Facebook for friends and family to see and since then all of her creations have been documented on her blog Lunchbox Awesome.

Heather is a huge fan of children's cartoons. Here she has crafted Garfield's sleepy expression using some egg yolk and whites and a piece of whole grain toast with seaweed for the cat’s stripes.
