爱。开心便当のValentine’s Day Gift

February 11, 2011

Valentine’s Day is coming very very soon…I am sure many couples are thinking and searching of Valentine’s gift for their loved ones.  This is the headache job for me to find a suitable git for my husband too…hehe.   But, there are two common gifts which most of the guy will give to the girl…a gift and a bouquet of roses. 🙂

Today’s bento will be about these two things, a gift and a bouquet of roses. I used yellow color rice seasoning mix to color the rice into yellow and made it as a gift box with the pink color egg sheet ribbon.   Then, I made a bear from a quail egg and decorated it with nori for the facial details.  But..I feel like this bear  look more like a piggy..heheh..How about you? 😉

After that, I used some sausage stripes to make six roses and included some lettuce to make a bouquet of roses with two heart shape balloons (food picks).

Other goodies in the bento are chicken nuggets, heart shape prawn sausage, broccoli, pink flower made of egg sheet and grapes. 

Do you spotted a diamond ring in the box too??  Yah…a diamond ring is hidden in the middle of the grapes…hehehe…but not a real diamond…it is just a sticker food pick, just to give some “sparkeling light” to the bento. 🙂

Happy Friday and have a great weekend ahead!! Cheers! 🙂


爱。开心便当のWedding Bears

November 3, 2010

I received two wedding news from my friends, one is our bento pal, Megan (bento zen) and another is my good friend’s sister.  Congrats Megan on her wedding! My good friend’s sister, Cassandra Leong will be getting merry this month too.  Therefore, today’s bento is a wedding bears bento to congratulate two of them. Wish them Happy Wedding!!!

 I made two big rice balls and four small rice balls moulded with cling wrap.  After that, join the two small rice balls with a big rice ball to form a bear head.  Place the heads in two different silicone food cups and decorated them with ham, nori and pink marshmallow.  I put a red ribbon food pick for the male bear as the bow tie for the bridegroom and some round shape ham to form a hair accessories for the bride.  A bridal flower bouquet for the bride at the center of the bears which made from imitation crab meat.

Other goodies in the box: chicken nuggets, love shape prawn sausage, chicken sausage flower, tamagoyaki and black grapes(under the love shape sausage).

Here’s my warm wishes to Megan &  Cassandra and all those who will be getting married in this month:

Wishing You God’s Blessing
on Your Wedding …
…and may He always be
the heart of your marriage,
the light of your home,
and the ever-present partner
in your life together.

Congratulations!!

Fondant Cupcakes – Bear & Keroppi

October 21, 2010

I made some steamed vanilla and orange sponge cupcakes for my eldest son’s classmates for Children’s Day celebration.  I decided to decorate the cupcakes with fondant icing.  This was my first time “play” with fondant icing.  It was FUN!!! 🙂 Decorating the cupcakes using fondant icing is just like making miniatures with clay.  As long as you got the imagination, you can decorated it any way you like…. cute, pretty, elegant, or sexy. 🙂 After some disscussion  with my son, we decorated the cupcakes with Bear and Keroppi. 

We dare not try with those 3D design as this is our first time using fondant, therefore, we just made a simple 2D design to cover the cupcakes.  Both of us had a great time when making all these cute cupcakes fondant.  There are total 50 cupcakes we need to decorate, 25 with Bear and the rest with Keroppi.  Here’s are some of our “artworks”…

After that, we need to pack those cute cupcakes with plastic disposable food containers.  We have to pack 25 boxes.  In each of the boxes, we put a Bear cupcake and a Keroppi cupcake, also included some sweets and mini fruit jellies.

I am glad that the kids like the cute cupcakes so much and enjoy eating them.  🙂

 


爱。开心便当のCaring Bear bento

September 28, 2010

I made this caring bear bento for my son this morning.  The bear was make from some white rice. I used the cling wrap to mold the rice into the shapes that I want, then joined them together to form the caring bear.  After that, using nori for the ears and the face details.  The red heart at the bear’s chest was cut out from a piece of red color artificial crab stick.  I cut some boiled carrot stars to decorate the box and included two cherry tomatoes too.

This caring bear already occupied the whole bento box.  Therefore,  I put the mushroom chicken and black grapes in another bento box.

Hope my boy will enjoy his cute caring bear so much. 🙂
