Animals in Teacups

I saw this set of uber cute coffee cup animals bento picks, that comes complete with a circus case. I was tempted to get a set but eventually convinced myself I don't need them. Maybe I'll change my mind next time, I can be really fickle-minded when it comes to shopping.

Inspired by that set of kawaii bento picks, I decided to make onigiri animals in teacups. From left to right, doggy, bunny, bear and kitty.

The animals are not difficult to make. They are made from rice, coloured ones have deco furi mixed in. I used nori for the details, doggy's ears are cut out from aburagge.

Served these animals onigiris with grilled chicken, broccoli, grapes and srawberries.

The animals are quite small, as the teacups are mini-sized ones. Anything mini always seems extra kawaii.
