I'll have to try that, but I thik if you had a thick skinned tomato, a faster and possibly cleaner looking versio could be made by blanchin the cut tomato after the X incision for about 2 minutes then dumping it in cold water...the skin would peel back nicely.

I'd also use cloves for the eyes, I don't like using non-edible things sp, something as long and pointy as toothpicks in food art.

Very cool!
My name is Shelly. I'm a SAHM to a toddler boy. I'm new to this bento thing and hoping to be really great at it by the time my son hits elementary school. :)

Not bento specific, just my personal blog: http://iusedtobeaperson.blogspot.com/
