Here’s a snowball bento! Or should we call it a “snow bao” bento!
If you’re like me and surf the sites like “Bento Central” you would of had to notice all the fun snowman bentos.
I had to give it a try too so I stopped at the market and bought ready-made foods like this rice (peanuts, currents, peppers, ginger, onions), baked salmon and a few steamed hum bao.
The later being my medium for a potential snowman. Well, I failed the first attempt and to hide my failure, I ate him.
And since I wasn’t that hungry I opted to create a snowball instead. Way easier to do with snowflake cutter and exacto blade.
Tossed in edamame for extra green color to compliment the red, re-purposed cookie tin (from last year).
Perfect for a bento box, yes? And this snow-bao won’t melt!
