When you eat, no matter what, it is very important to like what you see on the plate, to like the design of the food there that must look appetizing. Children especially are very delighted if they have a chance to have fun while eating, so I try to shape their food in a different way.

This Wilton 101-Piece Cookie Cutter Set is amazing, as it offers you a great variety of shapes to choose from, I mean 101, just like it is written on the box.
