Today’s bento is made by mai*mai, one of the most popular character bento artists on Rakuten Recipe.
It’s fairy simple to make. Here is a step-by-step tutorial.
Step 1: Make rice balls in oval shapes.
Step 2: Place a template (make your own) on the top of a slice of cheese. Cut it out carefully. Use a straw to carve out the cats’ hand pieces too.
Step 3: Use a hole punch to make face pieces from a sheet of nori seaweed.
Step 4: Place face parts on the cheese.
Step 5: Wrap the cat around the rice ball with nori!
Step 6: Place hands on top of nori. Add cheeks by using ketchup. Done!
Have a great weekend!
