We started with baked potatoes in Wilton Silly Feet cups. I provided cherry tomatoes in two different sizes, carrot sticks, sliced cheese, shredded cheese, red pepper lips, and shell and bow tie pasta.
We had to use rather small potatoes as the larger ones tipped the feet over. I'd suggest trying the potatoes out in the feet cups before you bake them to be sure you select the right sizes. Toothpicks worked well to hold the features on. For a few things we broke the toothpicks in half.
Mine (above) has shredded cheese hair held on with sour cream, a bow, and shell ears if you can't tell.
Lucy made an adorable little guy with a bow tie. She had a blast and even ate the red pepper lips (something we don't normally eat).
Julia only wanted cheese on her potato head. At one point he did have a bow tie, but she quickly ate it. She decided that her guy was in the bathtub so he didn't need to be dressed up. She only ate pasta for dinner anyway.
Esther enjoyed sucking on a carrot and a red pepper stick while we ate.
Ross even got in on the fun and made this guy. Along with some grilled chicken, this was an easy fun meal that we all enjoyed! I'll be serving this again soon. (Check back tomorrow for my secret tip to making the tastiest, easiest baked potatoes ever...) Happy Muffin Tin Monday!
