Crazy Christmas Bunny Bento



Finally I had the time to make a Xmas-themed bento, even though it doesn't look too obvious ;). I wanted to make a cute, yawning bunny, but I failed horribly and in the end it looks more like a crazy bunny ;). I spent hours trying to fix his eyes because he always looked so angry - now he looks more presentable for Christmas, before he looked more like a Halloween bunny ;). Sorry for the rather blurry photos, It was already dark by the time I finished making this bento. I had to use artificial lightning to photograph this bento and the result is not very pretty. Look at those horrible looking gyozas... :(!



I used my new bento box from CasaBento. If you're my long time reader, you would have noticed that I have a thing for wooden bento boxes - I think they look gorgeous! This Moriki bento box is my third wooden bento box :).



This bento box has two compartments. The top part is made of plastic and it includes a plastic lid as well.




It has a small food cup inside.



What I like about the food cup is that it's removable.

If you like traditional bento boxes like I do, you should definitely check out CasaBento's site. It has a quite big selection of beautiful traditional bento boxes.



Do you see those sunflower food picks? I made them myself :)! Aren't they gorgeous? They're extremely easy to make, you just need your favourite stickers and some toothpicks.

  • Rice
  • Ground toasted black sesame seeds - to make the black spots
  • Eyes: cheese and nori
  • Nose: nori and ground sesame seeds
  • Whiskers: cellophane noodles
  • Mouth: ham
  • Teeth: cheese
  • Red hat: mini red pepper
This crazy bunny simply couldn't wait to try the delicious mapo tofu which I made for lunch today :).

Happy Holidays, everyone :)!

  12. Merry Christmas CG! I can totally understand why it took long time to make eyes that express the right feelings... I think eyes expression is very important and hard part. At the end you made it really nicely! Merry Christmas and can't wait to see the winners!

  16. Woah, this Christmas Bento is very cool ! I understand how hard I must have been for the eyes, it's so difficult to make beautiful eyes and smiles, just a little thing and the expression can be totally different ! But I think it looks very funny in the end !! I was wondering how you managed to take SUCH a beautiful picture with artificial lightning. It's clear, white, and bright !
