It’s been quite warm in NYC this winter (we only got some flurries a week ago or so) but despite the warm winter and bad economy, you still can feel festivity in the air! So, I’m going to do something wintery today.

There are so many food artists out there who can carve intricate amazing looking sculptures out of vegetable or fruit, but it takes a lot of practice to do what they do. So I want to share something that’s pretty easy and anyone can do. No special sharp knife is required to make this one either!

[Snowflake]
– radish (or apple or cheese. You can use carrot if you want red snowflakes.)
— straw
— round object (bottle cap, cookie cutter, etc…)

Maybe this isn’t really a “how-to”, but since it’s winter and all, I thought I’d do this anyway.
I made a snowman very similar to this for Katamari bento. (I used fake sausage instead of carrot for its hat)

[Japanese snowman, a.k.a. Yuki Daruma]
– two quail eggs
– seaweed
– baby carrot (you can also use normal carrot or sausage)
– uncooked pasta
— hole punch, scissors
