made two simple ham and cheese buns today. we are dog-sitting for a friend for a month, and were kept awake last night due to the dog’s barking. i guessed that poor fella must be stressed and missing home, even though charlie, our cavelier king charles was friendly to his new ‘mate’ , gizmo, a silky terrier.
this morning was no better, gizmo ‘ marked’ his territory all over the kitchen. sigh…
ok let’s go back to bento. this is a ‘chubby boy’ bun for s. added some marshmallows, tangerine and longan.
and here is a girl bun for k.
i wanted a wide grin. tried punching using my new punchers but gave up after a few tries. each time only the eyebrows are perfectly cut. the grin either broken or not out at all.
i am using candy eyes for the first time! i just got them last friday, thank you to a kind bento mama who ordered online for me! you know who you are, hugs and kisses! =P . the candy eyes come in 3 sizes, small, medium and large. the ones above are medium size. i dont think i’ll buy the small size ones anymore because they are just a small dot of black candy. my personal favorite, the large ones! see photo below for comparison of the sizes. prices on the stickers are in usd, ordered from candyland crafts.
