If you haven’t already, you need to check out this Instagram account – Foodbites. Created by a mother who is a Food Artist by day, Foodbites brings everyday ingredients from the fruit bowl to life by transforming them into funny and cute characters. Strawberries have been transformed into these ‘Spiderberries’, complete with cartoon eyes and chocolate legs made with melted chocolate. You can learn how to make them in the reels section of her IG account. The cartoon eyes can be bought at your local supermarket.

There are also plenty of other ideas for inspiration here too!

Olives and mozzarella balls can turn into bats, or try one like this with scary ghouls made out of mushrooms!
