    This Woman Makes Staggeringly Pretty Meals For Her Children

    Anne Widya creates little masterpieces for her kids.

    Anne Widya is a Chinese-born Indonesian who lives in Hong Kong.

    She and her husband Matthew have four kids: Julie, 13, Charles, 12, Andrew, 10, and Elizabeth, 3.

    She tells BuzzFeed News: "I love to try new recipes, make cute things...and put the whole process in my blog when the kids are in the school."

    "I started making food art in 2012 but it was always something simple."

    "All my friends loved it and then they started to request cartoon characters for the next plate."

    "I get the art ideas from everything around me. The ideas can be from my kids, magazines, books, internet, TV or toys that we have."

    "My kids do not help in making the breakfast art because they love to sleep a little longer."

    "I cut and shape the bread while they do their homework at night, then I store it in an air-tight container."

    "Lunch and dinner art is usually more relaxed."

    "They love cutting nori (sushi wrap). They also love to give suggestions and helping hands which makes the whole process so much fun and faster."

    "My children love the arts, but they are also the worst critics."

    [They say things like]: "That chicken looks dead drunk, mommy, you need to change the eyes."

    "'Oh well, next time [it'll be] better, let’s take a picture,' that's what I always say to them."

    "I never make food art when they are hungry or in a hurry because that will defeat the whole purpose of food art: creating [a] happy memory."
