How to make an egg sheet

November 16, 2008

in basics,how-to

Every Sunday, I’m going to post random stuff. It could be a neat trick for making kyaraben, or a super easy & yummy food recipe I found, etc…

Today, I’d like to share “how to make a super durable egg sheet.” Later I’ll also show you how to make flowers using the egg sheet. In Japan, they sell “obento sheet” at the supermarket. It’s an edible sheet which comes in three colors, yellow, orange, and green. (egg, carrot and spinach) It’s very durable, so people cut it with scissors or a knife to make cute characters or various decorations for kyaraben. It’s almost impossible to get “obento sheet” in the U.S., but I found instructions for “how to make your own obento sheet” online.

bento #3: Happy Bee & GIR

I have been a big fan of Invader ZIM, and I used to make plushes of the characters.
I took a look at character images online, and decided to make the Happy Bee (a.k.a. Death Bee) because it looked pretty easy to make.

This is my second kyaraben.

That’s right. After my failure, I didn’t give up, but decided to make something different and easier. So, I looked around the internet, and found how to make Makkurokurosuke and mini-Totoro.

Today (11/11) is apparently International Pocky day!

Yay, Pocky!

Well, I’ve been meaning to do this blog for the past 3 months, but then my day job has gotten in the way,,,

Anyway, better late than never, so I’ll start blogging today.

I’ve been into making bento (“lunch box” in Japanese) recently, and I’m actually having a lot of fun with it. Here is my first attempt to make “something” with food.
