clown noses - maraschino cherries
"peanuts" - mini nutter butters 
barnum's circus animal crackers
elephants - cantaloupe

love my little lion...
 but I was in a hurry as the kids were hungry. will have to do a 2.0 version

Now it' your turn to share what circus inspired muffin tin meal you made this week! don't forget that the link up will stay open all week and non-themed mtm's are always welcome


  1. Love the lion, so sweet!!!!!

  2. Awwww, love the lion too!

  3. I love all of your tin. The clown noses are cute too.

  4. I love the idea of maraschino cherries as clown noses!

  5. Of course I LOVE IT!

    Finally linking up again, not themed, but yummy all the same! :) Happy MTM!

  6. Thanks for your great ideas! I was having a hard time figuring out how I was going to make a circus tin, but now I got it :)

  7. We had so much fun with this one! It helped to get ideas when I used a book for inspiration!

    I think I figured out that, since my site has a weird URL, it won't link up with you. Too bad for me!

  8. Thanks for all the hard work you do! You are inspiring. LOVE THE LION !

  9. Wish I had looked at some of the tins that were posted before I made our lunch. Maybe I would have had some inspiration and done a circus tin instead of chickening out.
    I have some great ideas for the future though. We will be learning about L soon enough and that lion is adorable.

  10. Whoops, with all my hopping around I am not sure if I posted my comment or not. If I already did and it is awaiting moderation please ignore this one.
    Just wanted to say I wasn't sure what to do with this theme, and I wish I had checked some of these neat tins out for some inspiration. I know I have some great ideas for the future. And I love the lion.

  11. How did you make such perfect elephant cantaloupe shapes?! My boy loves cantaloupe, and is so limited by food allergies. I'd love to be able to "fun" up his meals a little. I would have sworn you made yours out of cheese from the photo :)

  12. I just love your muffin tins. I have one of my own. Everytime I see your cool muffin tins , I think about my muffin tin creation that has been in storage for two years. I got it out last month and I shared it on my blog.Please visit @ http://www.mommiesandbeyond.com
    Have a great weekend!
