Happy Birthday Bento

Today is the daughters big 13 th birthday! Honestly, how did that happen?! So to commerate the occasion, she has received the "crown pancake" bento lunch. This is an idea I saw in one of my bento books. I made 2 pancakes, then filled them with blueberry jam and piped marshmallow fluff on the edge so the crown points would stick to it. To make the crown points, I put the pancake batter (bisquick mix) into a pastry bag with a tip and piped it into the pan, in one long piece. It is pretty pliable when warm, so just curl it around the pancakes, sticking it to the marshmallow fluff(frosting, whipped cream, whatever you have handy..) I put some little "edible bbs" on the points as decoration, and put a 13 on the top in blueberries.
Sausage links, mini hashbrowns and fruit on the side. There is maple syrup in the little container. (as if jam and marshmallow fluff isn't enough sugar)
