Sometimes, you want a funny food recipe that isn’t actually a recipe, and not something you really plan on eating. Although a bit out there, using food for your decor when it comes to a lunch, dinner, or dessert makes a whole lot more sense than sticking a plastic Pikacyu in the center of your table and calling it a day. Right?

This technique requires one standard sweet potato, a paring knife, and some patience (thankfully, sweet potatoes are relatively easy on the wallet, so you have some leeway when it comes to practicing). Once carved, use nori to darken the ears (dried seaweed) and carve out holes in the cheeks to place carrot rounds. The results are adorable, although not really edible (unless you like raw sweet potato, that is). Enjoy!
