Lion and Kawaii Mushroom Bento

I have 3 boxes that I use for Bento making, but 1 is currently with a friend and the other 2 have disappeared. But I found a small container and thought I would give it a try, thinking it would make a cute snack bento. It is only 0.3l ! It just fits in my hand! So I started by lining it with lettuce – I only needed to use a couple of leaves! Then I put a rice onigiri mushroom in, using a tube of apple for the stalk, a ball of tuna mayo for the lion’s head and chicken cocktail sausages for the mane and hearts. I used apple and carrots for decoration. The faces are Nori, cut with my best bento tool, a pergamano needle pen! You can get an idea about the relative size of this bento from the apple!

  1. Thanks Lia, what a lovely thing to say! The truth is I am not usually sure how it is going to look – I just dive in and use the ingredients available. The tuna ball was going to be a flower, but it ended up looking like a lion’s mane so I gave it a lion’s face 😀
