so pretty and Spring-y : )
Once again, this isn't a new bento, but with all the snow we have been getting lately, I have been yearning for spring..
The upper picture is from last spring, it is a cherry blossom tree from our neighborhood in Japan. It inspired me to make the bento shown here. This is actually the lower tier, made of sticky rice and hard boiled egg dyed with food coloring and sesame seeds for detail. The tree branch is made from inari zushi skins. For some reason I couldn't locate a picture of the top tier, probably just as well, I'm sure it wasn't as cute as the lower half. : )
This was made in the koi bento box, it holds an enormous amount of food, there's like 2 cups of rice in this thing and it still looks like it could hold another 2 or 3 cups!
