Easter Chick Bunny Bento

Yay, it's Friday again, I've been so busy this year, time seems to pass so fast! I'm sharing another Easter bento I made this week.

A nest of little chicks, two of the have their bunny suits on, ready to celebrate Easter, lol.

The nest is rice covered in bonito flakes. The three chicks in the nest are hard boiled quail eggs dyed yellow using tumeric water. Details were done using nori and carrot.

I made something similar to these little chicks in bunny suits last year. I used a chicken egg then, and made Kiiroitori in a bunny suit. You can click HERE to check out that post.

Sharing how to make this chick bunny below.

Using an oval cutter, press and cut into the egg white part of a hard boiled egg.

Slowly peel off the egg white using a knife. If the egg yolk looks fine, you can skip the next step, and just directly add on the details here.

Mix some hard boiled egg yolk with mayo. (I used a chicken egg yolk here) Use a knife to spread the egg yolk onto the hole we cut out in the previous step.

Slice off a bit of egg white from another hard boiled quail egg. Use an oval cutter to cut out bunny's ears.

Attach on the ears using pasta.

I used this puncher to punch out nori. You can dab on some mayo to help the nori to stick, if needed.

Cut out the beak from carrot using an oval cutter.

Something simple for you to decorate your bento or meal for Easter. :)

I changed my mind later, and changed the beak to a smaller oval, this was the final one that went into the bento.
