Practice Run #1 for Workshop...

OK, so I think I've mentioned on here that we'll be doing a bento workshop at the anime convention here in NJ in June - Now only 2 weeks away :o

This is just a quick practice run for the bottom tier of the two tier boxes that some will receive (some will get the 2-ties, some will get a one tier).  I don't actually plan on using green rice, but this was made from some of the leftover rice from the frogs I did for Monday.  I didn't do a very good job on it - I think the small ball needs done with plastic wrap - it's too small to form by hand (at least I found it to be...).
It is supposed to be a walrus - as seen in the new Yum-Yum Bento Box book, but it's definitely not obvious here - it's supposed to look more like this
Mine is missing the tusks as I knocked them off putting the other stuff in...

The egg will be one of 4 different shapes for the workshop (bunny, bear, fish or egg)

Anyway...  Just thought I'd share the first trial run - subject to change; I may be better off sticking to a cat ;P


  1. hello there!
    i'd just like to say that i really really love your blog!
    it's totally inspring!
    plus, as a non-asian, american, former jersey girl, i sometimes think people think i am 'pretending to be japanese' when i pack bento everyday, and sometimes i feel like a total weirdo in an office of people who eat hamburgers.
    thanks for the photos and the great creativity, and showing that bento is across the world and for everyone.
    you rock!

  2. very nice and you have jap's following
    that's nice a volte-face
