When at the supermarket I know exactly where the cheesecakes are located. Now, if you ask me where the fruits and veggies are located I would most likely give you a blank stare. Ummduuh what does a fruit look like? Ok, I am not that bad however I am not always motivated to pick up fruits like …. oranges. Until, the day I spotted the orange that was carved to look like a snail made from Dacil from Little Cooks blog. What? I can play with my food/ as an adult? Sign me up! Today’s post shows the (delicious) snail I created ….
then with a knife round the back for the tail,
then cut a shape for the
testicles (oopsie) tentacles .. tentacles!
then draw (I used a black marker) the happy face (eyes, mouth).
Hmm, I think ‘technically’ the eyes are suppose to go near the tentacles but I agree with Dacil that it looks cuter this way. Dont’cha agree?
I think I cut too much of the sides. Maybe next time, I will use tangerines (like Dacil did. Oh check out the frog she made using tangerines … waaay too advanced for me). Wow now I am craving to go get oranges AND tangerine to make more delicious edible snails, and if I get frustrated ‘attempting’ to carve I can just BITE their heads off without regret, hehe. Yep it’s fun (and healthy .. aside from the sinister head chomping) to play with food!
