Hello Edible Kitty

I've never been to Japan, but with all of the crazy Japanese food circulating the web these days, I can't help but want to experience these interesting dishes first hand. After pizzas loaded with every topping imaginable, bento boxes turned works of art are the next most popular craze. Take the one pictured at right, how cool would it be if you opened your lunch-box to find an edible Hello Kitty??? The rice body and corn button nose are just too cute for words. I'm not sure if you can order these babies at Pizza Hut, but I double dare you to recreate one at home! Share the process and final products on TeamSugar so we can all learn how to make edible masterpieces.

i've seen tonnes of hello kitty cookbooks at a japanese bookstore before. i seriously stood there flipping through them mesmerized by how much time & effort japanese moms put into making their children's lunch boxes. i went to elementary school with a japanese girl and her lunches always looked immaculate. maybe no hello kitty-shaped sandwiches, but still - amazing.

P.S. -- Here are some cute pictures and instructions! http://www.flickr.com/photos/pkoceres/sets/72157594253078594/ http://www.cookingcute.com/ Having the right dishes makes a big difference in how kawaii (cute) your bento is. You can get lots of great bento sets and accessories at Asian grocery stores too.

Asian grocery stores often sell shaped molds for making o-nigiri (riceballs). I have some that are shaped like hearts and flowers, and even a couple hello-kitty shaped. You can also buy decorative cutters (they look like very small cookie cutters) in different shapes that you can use to make flowers, clouds, etc.) I'll try to make a fancy bento sometime and send pictures. :)

It looked sweet but if you look closer it is a vegetable plethora!

That is too adorable. I love bento boxes (I'm eating my lunch out of one right now), but it's so much effort to make it look artistic! I'm usually far too concerned with it tasting all right to bother making it look nice too.
