Finally! I was able to make that rainbow work after a disastrous first attempt. This is by the way my entry for the Bento Summer School Homework # 3. Here it is:
I have a bed of rice and sprinkled some nori strips on it. The clouds in the bottom corners are made of steamed fish cake, cut using a heart-shaped sandwich cutter but using only the top part. The rainbow itself is made of grated cheese, some broccoli florets, sticks of steamed squash, and grated carrot. From another angle:
You’ll see I’m just using a standard Lock n’ Lock box here (one of my first!). I wanted to avoid distracting the eye with funky box colors, so I kept it simple.
I really liked the taste of this bento that I went ahead and made a similar one for today.
