Bentolicious #098
Two little yellow bears for today's bento. Can you guess what I used to make the yellow bear? Yup, I made it from hard boiled egg. Cut the egg white with bear shapes cutter and colored with turmeric that I mixed with water. The face parts were made from crab stick and nori and the flowers were from cucumber and carrot. I got some new food picks last month and decided to use the cute hat sets food picks for the yellow bears. Love those cute hat picks! Inside the other box : strawberries, chicken & corns meat balls, stir fry bean sprout with fish cake.

This month BOMB challenge is still going on. The theme for this month challenge is FLOWERS. You can read the details on Hapa Bento, thanks to Debra for organizing this fun event every month. Please join this event! You can enter as many as you want :)


Your bear faces are so perfectly done! *sigh* Don't know how you do it Lia. And so cute with their little hats!!! Chicken corn balls look yummy too... Sunny and sweet bento!

First of all, thanks for the BOMB shout out! You are so sweet to support our fun monthly challenge.

How cute are these yellow bears?!! They look perfect and I love the idea of the natural use of tumeric to color the egg white. I will need to "borrow" your idea for my own bentos! Thanks again Lia for sharing your creative tips for those of us who lack the "cute gene". :)
