Edible Art – For this mother, every meal is a masterpiece

Edible Art also known as food art is the best way to keep your little tykes’ interest in eating. For Samantha Lee, what started as an effort to keep her elder daughter intrigued by the idea of eating by herself, is now a collection of plethora of foodscapes that she prepares for her two daughters for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This extraordinarily ordinary art has rocketed her to fame with over 567831 followers on Instagram and 71,000 likes on her Facebook page.

How did she develop a passion for Edible Art? “I started my very first Bento making in December 2008, when I was heavily pregnant with my second daughter,” she states on her blog. “It was to let my elder daughter to eat independently after the arrival of her younger sister. I was very lucky and blessed that my creations never failed to impress my elder daughter and it made her looked forward to the next meal. Now, she has her little sister fighting over which character they should get during mealtime. It makes meal time extremely fun.”

She further states, “I sketch my designs before I make them into food to stay organized and prevent food wastage. Scissors, knives and toothpicks are my tools. I like to make something practical, something for everyone to be able to follow.”

Samantha has not undergone any professional training and relies on simple tools to create these adorable edible characters.

Her food art consists of famous cartoon characters, pop culture artists, famous celebrities, animals, birds, superheroes and even famous monuments.

She even runs workshop for kids to learn food art. Her artwork has been featured on various websites like The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and Daily Mail.
