It’s springtime and with that comes Easter, and with Easter comes new beginnings! This weeks bento is all about soft spring colours, new baby chicks, and happy little Easter bunnies!
I packed the bento in a fantastic bunny bento from http://www.bentousa.com…The “cracked egg sandwich” was made with a big egg-shaped cookie cutter. I cut two. The bottom egg remained whole to form the back of the sandwich. The second bread egg was cut in half horizontally and then I cut jagged edges with a sharp knife. Your two jagged-edged “egg halves” do not need to match up, as you will lay them open on top of your sandwich meat and slip the cheese chick inside. I cut the chick out of cheddar cheese with a little chick cookie cutter. I made the wing with a 1/2 circle cutter. I used food safe markers for the beak and eye. The flower picks were also purchased at http://www.bentoUSA.com
The sheep silicon cup, the flower silicon cup, the white bunny pick, and the pink bunny pick were all purchased at http://www.bentoUSA.com. I cut the flower-shaped cheese with these cutters, and the cucumbers with these cutters.
I sure hope you all have a wonderful Spring Break and Easter holidays! Happy bento-ing!
