Bento box Challenge (No.52)
On Friday, fellow Bento blogger, over at Veggie Bento, posted her weekly Cupcake Friday post and the cupcake in question was in a Cupcake-to-go holder.
This got me thinking…
I have one of those cases.
And I love bento…
I would LOVE to make a mini bento in my cupcake holder!!
So I set myself a challenge.
And I made it:
My best food photography yet, if I do say so myself 🙂 I even put together a background 😀 with a mini vase of flowers. Go me!
This mini bento features two small onigiri cubes (made with a rice cube maker), the one on top has edamame in and they both have a strip of nori wrapped round them. Round the sides, I have put sliced cucumber, sliced carrot, sliced mange-tout and a couple of slices of smoked sausage.
This is by no means a full lunch bento, but it will accompany my lunch today and I will be extra excited to eat something this pretty! It is just the right size for a snack and I’m so pleased that I was able to make a bento in the cupcake holder! Just to confirm, the lid does go on! I didn’t want to stack it too high just in case it didn’t!
See? 🙂 (It’s got a weeny it of condensation because it’s been in the fridge, but that’s ok).
What different containers have you used for bento? And what was their original purpose?
Hope you enjoyed my personal challenge 😛 I sure did! Thanks for the inspiration Veggie Bento! 😀
