Bentolicious #084
Today's bento was My Melody's friend called Piano. I made it from spam and cheese with egg and carrot flowers. It was easy to make with various cutters. In the other box, I put asparagus and carrot wrapped in thin slices of pork belly, egg flower, grape tomatoes, kumquats, and sweet potatoes flower. The sweet potatoes flower was made of sweet purple potato and sweet yellow potato. Steamed them first until soft and then mashed it with a little bit of vanilla milk. Then I combined the two colors sweet potato and shaped them. Tada ... I love the two-tone colors! Plus kids love to eat sweet potatoes.


I like your 2 tone potato balls. Clever to combine the colors! Thanks for teaching us a new technique.

Wow, it really looks like her hair! So cute! And how did you make the rose? Is it sweet potato strip? Those mini mini flowers are always my favorite!
I do love to see your bento late at night like this, so I can comment at the laptop more easily, and I can see it better too! And dream about it tonight, hehe :D

WOW! Another nice creation. So...So..pretty!!

@hapabento : Thanks a lot Debra!

@sherimiya : Thanks a lot Sheri! The rose was from egg sheet. I cut it with my round cutter for about 12 round shapes and then resembled them into the rose shapes. I like to make a post before lunch time after the house works were done but if I have to go somewhere then I will have to post it in the afternoon hehehe :)

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Ann for your nice comment!

The little flowers surrounding Piano are so delicate ! I love those, and the little carrot/asparagus wraps as well. I might have to steal that idea someday.
