Banana Food Art – Carving and Styling

The soft flesh of bananas is the perfect choice for food carving and the firm yellow skins are a creative persons dream.

Here are a few of my favorite banana food art projects:

Banana dolphins

This fun project could not be easier.  Take a clear glass and fill it with some grapes to resemble water. make a slit on the end of two bananas and add a maraschino cherry. 

A magic marker will form the eyes. So easy and fun!

Banana Devil

This banana devil uses the whole banana for a fiendish look. The skin of the banana is peeled down to form a devil cape and legs.

Pinch the top of the banana to form horns and use a knife to carve a devilish expression. Instant spookiness!

Banana carving for a face
