    Sparkles! Those tempeh stars are adorable! I have some little cutter outers and need to use them more often. I think it will get my kids, and the kid in me happier to eat our meals!

      hehe, thanks Kristy! This is the very first cutter set I’ve ever owned, so probably ALL of my food will be cut into shapes from now on. 😉
