Beach Scene Lunch!

Beach Scene Lunch!

Beach Scene Lunch!

Turkey and Cheese dolphin sandwiches cut with a cookie cutter (I cut off their tails to give the illusion of being under water)

Water is made out mustard that I died with food coloring and smeared on the plate with my finger.

Palm tree trunk is a banana that has been scored with a knife. Kiwi cut into quarters for leaves and 2 brown M &M’s for coconuts.

Sand is made from graham cracker crumbs and I used two Safeway Brand chocolate star shaped cookies.

Sun is made of yellow chocolate using a Wilton mold that was $1.99 at Michaels.
