Bear & Crab at Beach Bento

I made bears chilling by the beach for my boys' lunch last Friday. I've quite a lot of picks that I've never used before, so I dug out some of my collection for the bentos. :P

Bears are made from meat patties, cheese and nori. :)

Pasta is done aglio olio style with garlic and salt. There's also broccoli and carrots in the box.

Crabs are made from sausages, they are very easy to make, I did a tutorial on how to make them at the end of this post. :)

Did this very simple snack for my boys yesterday. Trees are pandan bread cut out with a cutter.

I did a sausage crab tutorial before, this is an even easier version. :)

Cut a cross on sausage before you boil them.

Boil sausages. Next, cut 2 circles from kamaboko (fish cake) using a round cutter. You can also use straw for this.

Attach on the parts using fried pasta. I just fry the pasta in a little oil, so it's crispy.

I used this puncher to punch out nori for the crab's eyes.

Ta-dah, it's done, easy right? :)

  4. Where do you live? I've never seen sausages that little or in that shape... and have no idea what a fish cake is. I know I'm not a 'foodie', but I don't recognize a lot of what you post/eat so I am curious if you live anywhere near me. :)
    This is a cute lunch.

    1. Hi Sarah, I'm fr Singapore. Fish cake is an Asian food, the ones I used are kamaboko, Japanese fish cakes. U can substitute it with cheese. As for the sausages, u can use cocktail sausages too. :)
