This was inspired by my bento friend's creation, she made a doggy in a bowl of soup. However, she warned me that the rice grains will break apart very fast in the hot soup. Thanks to her advice, after I moulded the bear, I pan fried it with some oil and brushed on some soya sauce till a crust is formed. This way, the onigiri was able to hold its shape. :)
Bears soaking in miso soup. The other dishes for dinner were tonkatsu, stir-fried salmon with broccoli and ebikko mayo prawns. :) The bear behind looks like he is drowning, lol. :P
A closer shot. :)
This is my portion for dinner. Daddy's dinner is similar to the boys', a slightly bigger portion and served with plain white rice, instead of the grilled onigiri bear. :P
I bought this for the boys to play. It's actually gummy candy.
The instructions were all in Japanese. -_- I found this Youtube video that's very helpful. :)
The boys' gummy sushi. :) I bought the ramen and burger set as well, will let them play with those next. :)
