The Lorax Bento


The Lorax 

The Lorax is the main character of the famous children's book "The Lorax" written by Dr. Seuss. To be honest, I have never read the book nor watched the movie, but I have always wanted to recreate the Lorax out of Babybel cheese after I saw Tiffany Yang's post, where she explained how to make the Lorax using babybel cheese.

Tiffany used store-bought candy eyes for her Lorax, which I would recommend as well, since it's going to save you time. But since I don't have any candy eyes, I made the eyes using green-dyed eggwhite and nori seaweed. The eyebrows and moustasche are simply cut out of a slice of cheese using a toothpick.

I included three pieces of pan-fried Korean seafood pancakes, two pieces of tamagoyaki and two pieces of halved cherry tomatoes. Decorate your bento box with some greens (I used mustard leaves) and a few cute foodpicks.

The bento box is one of my treasured bento boxes which I got from Bento&Co last year, it's called kyo bento box, isn't it beautiful? I should use it more often! Till next time :)!
