Crafting the food

I have always liked the cute decorated bento lunches and wondered if I can do something like that for my kids school lunch. I am surely not going to have time and resources to do decorated bento but for now a simple bento lunch box

summer fun day six

It was a busy Saturday, and we had a lot of fun. In the morning when I was busy in kitchen and DH was out, Achu asked her sister to show the coloring to her. And when I went in the room they both were so busy in their work

2014-04-19 14.01.04Achu happily told me how she was able to mix different colors and got new colors.

Later I backed Black Forest Gateau from Sanjeev Kapoors Simple Home Backing. Kids had fun decorating it with tooty fruity and James.
