Halloween is my favorite holiday. Food is my favorite hobby. Thus, Halloween lunches are a bit of a thrill for me.
Some of my Bento Blogger Friends decided to celebrate the season with a series of Frightful Fall Blog Hops. We will have three hops - I am part of the first one. I hope that by hopping through our boo-tiful lunches, you will find some inspiration for your own haunted fun.
I decided to try something new for these lunches. I picked up some Halloween wafer paper from Amazon (via FancyFlours.com). Wafer paper is traditionally used on cookies, and sometimes cakes. I searched the web to see if anyone had posted using it on bread before - so this could be a first!
For the sandwiches, I cut the shapes out of the wafer paper with a sharp knife, painted the back with a little corn syrup, and then placed them on top of the bread. I pressed them for about 10 minutes by putting a cast iron pot on top of them to makes sure the wafer paper was well attached.
We'll see how the kids like the flavor... but I really love the way the sandwiches look!

The Girl has grapes, a clementine Jack-o-Lantern, a turkey and Cabot cheese sandwich on a sandwich thin with wafer paper decoration on a bed of spinach, with apple slices (BOO!), and some cinnamon star crackers, all in an Easylunchbox. She also has Dick & Jane Baking company Educational snacks (not pictured) for snack.
I hope that you have enjoyed my lunches, and now, head on over to Cristi at Bentonbetterlunches to see what's hopping next!
