Went to bakery shop yesterday and bought some meat floss donuts. The donuts are ‘cute’ and ‘fat’ yet tasty too. 🙂
I used the donut to make a crab bento for my son this morning, using a crab coin bank as a guide. The result was great, I love the donut crab. 😉
I used the donut as the body of the crab and using prawn sausage for the claw and legs. For the eyes, I used fish ball, ham and nori. Then, I used a red icing pen to draw two ‘spiral’ on the crab’s body as on the crab coin bank. For not wasting the food too much, I used the left-over sausage and ham to made two flower sausage, and put in the leave food picks for decoration. I filled the rest of the bento with some seedless grapes.
When I was at the bakery shop, I found some cute cartoon mooncake biscuits (combination of mooncake and biscuit texture) which is suitable for children while celebrating the Mooncake Festival. I bought few for my sons. They are just cute and taste good too.
Posted this bento at What’s for Lunch Wednesday, Week 13 at Shannon’s blog.
