Oktoberfest Heart Bento

Yesterday I mentioned Oktoberfest and how I love the colourful gingerbread hearts (Lebkuchenherzen) which gave me an idea for today’s bento! Of course this one is not made of gingerbread; it is a meat sandwich on brown bread cut into a heart shape and decorated with coloured cheese hearts, flowers, leaves and a bow. The swirly lace / icing and white writing is actually mayonnaise (Thanks Diane for your suggestion!) I put a couple of spoonfuls into a homemade piping bag and squished and squeezed away, finally adding a drop of blue colouring for the extra layer of swirly “icing” for the edge.

“i mog di” is Bavarian for “I love you”!

  1. Mayonnaise for icing is an awesome idea! I’ve been racking my brains for a non-sweet substitute for icing. Thanks for the tip! I love the cheese decorations!

  2. lol I was thinking mayo but did not say it because I didn’t know if it would stay thick enough by the time you ate it…way to go!

  3. That is so adorable and inspiring! It’s a good thing I saw this post on LiveJournal because my RSS feed of your blog hasn’t shown me your new posts!
