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.

This crazy bunny simply couldn't wait to try the delicious mapo tofu which I made for lunch today :).

  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 !
