Kero-Keropi Twin-Pasta

    25 mins

    I haven’t made these cartoon stuff for a long time as my son is already in his teens. You can see my Kero-Kero’s here isn’t smiling as sweetly as before. But on rare occasions, I do prepare for my guests’ young children. I guess practice makes perfect. I’m sure you can do a better job.

Body – Cover the tomato pasta with omelette. Use ham stripes to decorate the clothes. Voila! You’ve got your Keropi Pasta for your kid!


    Almost all kids dislike vegetables & my son was no exception when he was younger. Try creating fanciful cartoon characters to divert their attention, it always work. I would use lots of vegetables & “mould” them into cute little shapes to add them to my son’s dishes those days.
