I am totally in awe with latte art. I did my first last year and have been making on an average 3 latte and/or cappuccinos weekly if not more in the past year.
one of my absolutely must have kitchen gadget for this is my nespresso’s aeroccino. it can froth foamy milk perfectly for 3d cappuccinos or 2d etched latte art. however, it’s not the right consistency for free pour latte art. 😦
Here’s what i had for coffee break today – a home baked hello kitty kaya bun and hello kitty (singapore’s 2 bows) 3d cappuccino.
made hello kitty bun by cutting the crust away with a small scissors. added cheese and punched seaweed/nori.
below is a shot of espresso from my trusty pink nespresso coffee machine and frothed milk with aeroccino. see how micro-foamy is the milk!
pour milk into the glass. scooped and ‘scuptured’ milk foam into desired character. it’s usually two tiny ears and a round face. in this instance, i made two little bows onto the head. can you see it?
add facial details and add colour (food colouring) to bows.
tadah – all things hello kitty. 🙂

It’s been another long pause since I made the last cute sandwich. Made these recently for my office annual donation drive.
I had my sister ‘s help last year. On my own this time, it took me a few more hours even though I made a simpler ‘bear’ and keroppi. I started late night after kids went to sleep. Completed mission at 3am!!
More instagramed photos below. 🙂
All types of bread – chocolate, corn,pandan, plain, mini butter buns and muffins too.
nerdy buns filled with egg omelette and cucumber. i added a pair of specs to the bear and cling wrapped all separately.
simplified keroppi with kaya spread
i cut away the muffin tops and instead of using fondant, I cheated and used bread and cute picks to decorate!
The brown parts are inverted muffin tops (from above) ‘glued’ to pandan bread with nutella. as they say- dont waste food! 😉
all packed and yawn…. oh .. my eyelids were sooo heavy. lesson learnt -start earlier next year!
prepared and sponsored 2 sets of bento stuff for ‘guess the numbers’ contest.
Happy to report that our donation drive was a huge success. it’s heartwarming to know that the funds collected will make a difference in some people’s lives.
December is nearing… time to make Christmas themed Bento?
