"Piggy-Daisy" Onigiri Bento



I am in love with my daisy fondant cutter...:)! The cutter makes really pretty daisies, doesn't it? The daises are made out of goat cheese (white) and cheddar cheese (dark yellow). And it's not me if I don't add extra cuteness to my bento, I just had to add the little piggy faces on top of the daisies...;)!



The little piggies are made out of bologna and I coloured the rice with beet juice again. Since quite some people asked me how to colour the rice with beet juice, let me use the chance now to explain how:

Basically you need to puree the beets than strain the juice with a sieve. Add this juice to cooked rice and mixed well. And please note: you don't have to add too much juice to colour the rice pink, it's quite intensive and I am sure you don't want to have soggy rice in the end. Just add little by little until you get the shade you wish. I hope this is explanatory enough...!




These two onigiris are filled with chicken teriyaki (again;)) and the bento box behind is filled with 2 slices of pizza baguettes, 3 pieces of baked potatoes, cheese-daisies and a slice of tomato.
