Mamegoma Bread Ball Bento

I made the cute Mamegoma from San-X using bread balls. I've received a few requests for a bread ball tutorial, I finally managed to take some photos, hope they are useful.

Mamegoma bread balls are filled with tuna. :)

I also packed croquette, broccoli and strawberries.

To make bread ball, slice off bread crust and cut a slit on either 4 sides or corners of bread.

Add in your fillings in the middle. I added tuna here, you can also use jam, Nutella, peanut butter, pork floss, etc.

Bring four corners together and wrap up in cling wrap.

Mould the ball to the shape you want. This will be the basic bread ball that you can use for your charaben.

To turn your bread balls into Mamegoma, get another piece of white bread and flatten it with a rolling pin.

Cut out ovals from the bread. You can use cheese for this too.
