Frankenstein bento I made for my boys' lunch. I coloured the rice with green deco furi and used peas for his nose and ears. :) There is grilled chicken wings, kiwis, strawberries and grapes in the bento box at the back.
The tombstone and hand toppers are placed on top of a bed of spinach.
These Mummy and Frankenstein sandwiches are actually a remake from my Halloween bentos two years back. Click HERE to see the previous version. I had some requests for a tutorial, so I decided to remake them again, using slightly different ingredients.
Mummy is a nutella and cheese sandwich and Frankenstein is a guacamole and nutella sandwich. Step by step photos to create these are below.
For Mummy, first cut out bread with a round cutter. You can also just make a square Mummy, if you like.
Spread bread with Nutella. Cut out cheese using a round cutter, straw or the back of your pipping tip.
Slice a blueberry in half and use as the eyes.
Cut strips of cheese using a knife and placed them on the sandwich, leaving just the eyes area exposed. If you do not like the taste of cheese with nutella, you can substitute cheese with bread. Roll a slice of bread flat using a rolling pin before cutting into strips.
Trim off the excess cheese with a pair of scissors and you are done.
For Frankenstein, slice off the crust of bread if you prefer. You can use pandan/spinach bread or spinach wrap if they are available.
If you can't get those, you can spread on guacamole to turn the bread green. I am using a mild guacamole recipe, get it HERE.
Cut out Frankenstein hair from bread and spread Nutella on it.
Assemble on the hair and eyes. The eyes are done the same way as the Mummy sandwich earlier.
Draw on the rest of the features with Nutella, icing or chocolate sauce.
Hope you find the tutorial useful and you like the remake version. :) It's a busy day for me tomorrow, so I will be taking a break from blogging tomorrow night, I will update my blog again on Thursday. :)
