May one at alphabet soup on Shabbat / Yom Tov?
- Alphabet noodles possibly forming words - writing?
- Eating letters - erasing? By comparison, I understand that if a cake has letters on it, one cannot cut the cake between the letters as that is considered erasing. (One may eat the cake, otherwise. The problem is specifically cutting the cake that way.) Would alphabet soup have different halacha, and if so, why?
- Sorting - possibly because you or a child, more likely, might manually pick out letters from the soup to play with them, or s/he may decide to eat specific letters or put them on the spoon.
