Bento #133 St. Patrick's Pixie and Dixie Bento

This is the bento I made yesterday for dinner at home....I've been thinking the ideas for St. Patrick's Day bento since last 2 weeks, finally settled with these mice which I saw  it on my girl's colour pencils box cover.... this time, I took the challenge on the nori trimming after seeing so many nori artwork bento by Karen Wee

The nori trimming part really took me hours to finish...luckily the result came out good and I'm very very happy on the mice...firstly, I outlined the mice on a piece of baking sheet, then only attached with the nori sheet and start the trimming... then sticked the trimmed nori on the cheese on and off, paste here and there... may be this is the tedious part, until I've forgot to trim for their beards!! My goodness!! Mice without beards :D

I made their eye balls in green and blue colour, but it turned out in dark after awhile, may be because of the nori at the bottom made them change colour, I'm not so sure, hehe...
The ribbon is coloured quill egg, the cloth is crabstick, the St. Patrick's hats are sweet pea, cheese and nori.....the Irish shamrock is sweet pea too...:) and I sprinkled some small pieces broccoli on the rice...

Foods in the other box: fried quill egg meat ball, sauteed French beans with carrot, cocktail sausages, corn, honey cherry tomato, broccoli, sweet pea and some green leaf.

mice without beards ^c^

finally found their beards this morning ^o^

Bento #132 Easter Bread Boys Bento

I packed two set of bento this morning, as usual one is for my girl , and the other set is for the son of my girl's teacher ....:D... I hope the boy will like it ....

I baked some butter dinner buns yesterday... my original plan was baking the doughs into chicks pattern, I had even decorated the doughs with chocolate chips as their eyes and cashew nut as their peaks.... however, unfortunately all the buns came out with the melted eyes, so sad :(

so, I have to change my plan.... and this is the only idea got in my mind while staring at the nose part, I had transformed the buns into boy's face, the details are cheese, nori and crabstick.... other food added in are honey cherry tomatoes, broccoli, green leaf and Easter quill eggs.... fruits are papaya and strawberry.....

Bento #128 Stitch Bento

This is my second bento for today, which I prepared for dinner.....
I cooked the rice with some extract from butterfly pea flower , and transformed the rice balls into  Stitch's face and ears...the colour is so nice, but I'm not satisfied with the details on Stitch... the eyes and ears look weird... I should make the eyes bigger and not so oval in shape...

Bento #127 Bunny Siblings Bento

For today, I just prepared a simple bun bento for my girl...
homamade butter roll with two bunnies, decorated them with the newly bought crown & ribbon picks (these picks are difficult to get.... I've been searching high & low, and finally got them recently.... so happy with my new picks!!)
