Today’s how-to might seem advanced, but it’s really not! When I made my Super Smash Bros Brawl bento, I got so much exposure on the internet. Many game related websites posted the picture of my bento. I was really surprised, but I noticed that many people who really liked my bento were moms! Their kids, just like my boyfriend, love Yoshi, and they wished they could […]

This is also something I made for my Super Smash Brothers Brawl bento. It’s very easy to make, and looks adorable. If you don’t put eyes on it, you can just use it as normal mushroom for your bento. [Super mushroom] – quail egg or hot dog sausage – cheese – seaweed – cherry tomato

They cost about the same as normal eggs, so some people might find them expensive. Quail eggs are very good for bento, and I always have them in my fridge. If you can’t find it, you can use a normal sized egg. […]

Makkurokurosuke and mini-Totoro can come in super handy when you’re making a Miyazaki film themed bento. They are so easy to make and small enough to fill the space in a bento. They may be too easy to do how-to on, but I thought I’d just do it anyway. [Makkurokurosuke ver.1] – rice – seaweed (1/4 sheet) – kamaboko (fish cake) or cheese if you don’t […]
