Pink Sakura Bento



I am getting crazy with designing my own mugs ;)! This time I hand-painted the picture with water colour, colouring pencils and markers before the picture was printed on the mug. I think this mug looks sort of better than my previous ones (which you can see here and here) because hand-painting allows me more freedom on the design.

Today's bento is quite simple: the steamed rice is topped with furikake (dried perilla leaves with plums), garden cress and radish sakura flowers. Next to the rice there are slices of roasted duck with paprika sauce and half a cherry tomato.

The bento box on the left contains stir-fried string beans, mini paprika filled with goat cheese, radish kimchi, cherry tomatoes, ham flower and two pieces of Babybel cheese.

  1. Oh, your mug is simply gorgeous! I never knew that you can also use handpainted designs for printing on mugs. That is a really cool idea!
    And your bento looks stunning. I love this radish sakura flowers.

  4. CG, I must say I see these bentos like a new style here! They are more... artistic! The mug is as cute as previous ones, but I must admit it's more elaborate and more difficult to copy ;-)
