Bento#Nov10~Happy Deepavali

Yay....I'm so happy that kids having one week school holidays and the best part was mummy can have a break ^_^ Next week Tuesday 13th November 2012 will be "Deepavali" so I'm making bento for it. I steam pandan man-tou and then add tuna mayo fillings. Wrap man-tou by using nori/seaweed for pretty indian lady head cover and deco with some fondant star. Since is a celebration, I add pretty crown :) This crown was a gift from my friend. So sweet of her :P Next, Indian lady has pretty big eyes so I cut out dolly eyes again and is so much easier to cut when is bigger :D Add the eyelashes, nose and mouth. Finished with some grapes and cute pineapple biscuits.
A closer look :) Do you like it?
I used alphabet cutter to cut out the cheese and deco on top of the man-tou. Also add the candle light for "Happy Deepavali" Lastly deco with some musical note picks too! Hope you all will like this bento and do check out my blog or Facebook page after one week break ^_^ Cheers!


Lunch for today's~SHEEP~ bento ^_^ I boiled some broccoli, fishballs, carrots, edamame beans and crabmeat stick. I don't cooked the rice early morning but will re-heat the overnight cooked rice :) To make the sheep, I cut half of the fishball for the face and wrap together with cooked rice. Used plastic foil to avoid stick to your hand. Before I place the sheep to the bento box, I sprinkle some fish floss at the bottom then place the sheep on top. Put the broccoli surround the sheep and deco with some carrots that I use cutter to cut the shapes. Next, I took the red part crabmeat stick and used scissor to cut the sheep ears with slightly curl shape. Noticed the eye with white spot together with black? I used the "bear shape fishcake" that can purchased from wet market. I just used straw to poke the black/white part to make it cute little eyes :P The cheeks also from the same "bear shape fishcake" (can view from Cute Kangaroo bento picture) The mouth I used nori/seaweed and to let it stay firm, I spread some kaya (less watery type kaya cause is more sticky) :D Of cause, you may used alternative ingredients. Don't have to follow exactly what I used :P Lastly, I put the rest of the fishballs, carrots, edamame beans and grapes. Just arranged it at another container.
A closer look of my cute little sheep bento for my kids :) I hope you will like this bento too! Cheers!

I still have few more 豆沙饼 so this time will turn into "Ladybugs" :D Before you decide what to do for bento, try to think of a bento theme or a character for the main role. It helps you go along with the rest of the side dishes too :) At the bottom of the "Lady Bugs" was tuna cheese sandwich. As you can see on top of the bread, I spread some jam and filled fish floss to make it like sands. Next I add plastic leaf to make it more nicer. To make sure the "Ladybugs" stay firm, I add spaghetti strips (my girl will take away the spaghetti strips).
To make "Ladybugs" head, I cut semicircle nori then stick to the cheese and use toothpick to trim out. The eyes also use cheese and nori. Followed by the lines and spots. To let the head stay firm, I toasted spaghetti a bit to make it as antennae then poked through.
To make it more alive, I add some cute "Ladybugs" picks that sponsor by Bento Berries Good news to all of you that there is a giveaway!!! Please do check out the links and enter the contest before it ends on 18th November 2012.Good Luck!
 Lastly, I add some cherry tomato, box of raisin and small mandarin orange. Hope you all will like this "Ladybugs" bento ^_^ Cheers!

Bento#Nov07~Sporty girl

Today kids lunch will be tomato shell pasta and ham with cheese bread. On top of the shell pasta, I add hard boiled egg. Part of the egg I decorate as flower ball that is for today's theme~Sport Girl~ playing ball. As you can see I used cutter to cut as cloud to look like sky :P The flower ball, I use puncher to cut the nori.
 Sporty girl I used oval shape cutter to cut the cheese as face. And add dolly eyes for her with nori. Freehand cut nori for hair, nose, mouth and ear. Broccoli as her dolly dress and used broccoli bottom part as dress frills but you need to cut thin slice. As for her boots, I used sausages :) To let the boots stay firm onto the bread, I used spaghetti sticks poked the sausage then to the bread. Her hands I used cutter as well. Lastly, I add some fondant star for her hair band.
 I hope you will like this sporty girl bento too!! Have a nice day~

Followed by the eyes, nose, mouth and cute tiny front legs :p As this is for my girl's bento so I added pretty ribbon picks. Finished with some biscuits, marshmallow and small mandarin orange.

Bento#Nov04~Lovely Kitty

Kids grandparents gave them a box of 豆沙饼. What is it call in English?? hmm....anyway, this is another easy bento to make for snack :) I just freehand cut nori or you can used puncher but due to the small bun, I can't find the proper size of my puncher at home. So, I liked to freehand cut nori :p The ears I used cheese, no need to use cutter mould but just take small knife to cut the cheese. Each side of the ears I cut two same sizes of cheese and sticks together so that won't fall off and also stay firm on top. The sauce container, I added whip cream that my girl likes it so much. Lastly put cherry tomato with cute hello kitty picks that I bought recently from Bento Berries as well the kitty red ribbon too ^_^
 Do you like Hello Kitty? You can easily make this cute character as long is round :D
Another angle of the picture ^_^ Hope you all have a wonderful day!
