Which one do you like better? Hello Kitty Bento or Minion Bento?
I made these two bento earlier for Chef Sharryl of The Audacious Cakery. It is really interesting how we got connected via Instagram. I had actually visited her lovely cakery for a review post, in fact the post was even before we got in touch via Instagram. Amazing how social media works~~
Sharryl wanted a bento for her girl, but to be fair to both her children, she requested for me to make one for her son as well. So we ended with a Hello Kitty bento for her girl and the Minion bento for her boy. Do you like these two bentos?
As this was meant for children, I tried to keep the sides to favourites such as teriyaki chicken as well as crabstick and ham which were easy on the palatte, with the addition of fruits and vegetables to ensure a complete wholesome meal.
Since it is a public holiday today here in Singapore, decided to post this back log bento that I made last week.Ingredients for Hello Kitty character included rice for the head and hands. Seaweed was used for the eyes and whiskers. Crabstick was for the ribbon and thin egg sheet for the nose.
For Minion - as I wanted the bento to be more child-friendly, I did not use deco furikake to color the rice yellow. Instead, I used egg soboro (diced up scrambled egg omelette, japanese style) and addded to the rice. The jumper and specs were made from seaweed and egg sheet. The eyes were made from rice and seaweed.
Cheese would have been an easier choice for the eyes, but I didn't want the bento to melt (judging from the hot summer heat now) before reaching the hands of the child.
Will be back bento-ing tomorrow. Have a wonderful day!
