Bento #80 Think Pink

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 6:54 PM
Lately, lots of tweets about #thinkpink and #projectpink in Twitter. This is to honor October as month of Breast Cancer Awareness. It is for a good cause and here is my pink theme bento. Please join along and click here for more information. Further information of Breast Cancer is in Susan G Komen site

Above bento was for my girl, which anyway I made another identical box for my boy.
The pink heart rice was shaped by rice mould. Before, the rice was mixed with pink dembu. While in pink cup, there was sauteed stringbean with carrots. On top was the pink ribbon, made from kani sheet. Well, kani has orange and white sheets, thus I put one drop of red food coloring into a small bowl of drinking water and immersed white kani for minutes. Until now, I don't know how much water or drops will provide me with the right color. I guess it was plain lucky because I got the exact pink shade that I wished for.

The remaining contents in box were left-over from kani, shaped in tiny flowers *just try to make use of every cooked stuff*, frozen-bought kani egg rolls and a rabbit-apple.

Too bad that I picked the wrong spot to do the photography and I was in hurry to leave the house too :(
