A quick bento parade post for today ^^. Yes, today I share some bentoing ideas from my previous (err... a long time ago ^^) bento classes. Having bento classes, frankly, is not my regular activity; it's for fun and sharing activities. When friends asked me for a bento class and then I had no tight schedule at campus, then I would love to say yes for their invitations. And all the times, the bento classes were always conducted at the weekend when I was free from campus activity :D
When I'm asked for a bento class, I always love to design my own flyer. It's always a lot of fun! ^^. I only designed all those flyers with adobephotoshop CS5. I wish I could work with adobe illustrator so that making cute characters will be way easier ^^
And below are some bentoing ideas from my bento classes. Hope they can inspire your bentoing activity or for your bento catering ideas. The characters and ingredients here had been adjusted with Indonesian flavor :D
Let's start with decorated snacks!
Pastel Crab for Bento Class in Malang! You just need beef sausage cut into tulip-shaped flowers and round fishcake/cheese cutouts to make your pastel a crab! :D
You can do a magic with cheese and smoked cheese to make an owl cupcake! You don't need fondant, eh? :D
Taraaa.... Very cute and yummy bear burger ^^
Baked macaroni? Couldn't be this cute ^^. It's Anpanman!
Bored with the look of your traditional snacks? Pimp it up! Your croquettes will be cute Piggy and Bear cuties ^3^
