Cherry Blossom Bento by mindfire3927 Cherry Blossom Bento by mindfire3927
Wanted to get one more practice with the nori hand-cut technique before my daughter comes home from visiting her aunt :D I always loved cherry blossom art so thought I'd give that a go!

1st Level: onigiri stuffed with crab with food color blossoms (I had little crab blossoms at first but they wouldn't stick worth anything), baked sweet potato fries.

2nd Level: cherry "blossoms" *ba dum KSH!* with blueberry centers, sweet corn, salad with cucumber flowers.

This is very creative and well done. The theme ties in together perfectly, and I have no doubt this is something that would win a contest for being so united. And.. tasty.. yum!:heart:

Thanks very much! The cherries ended up being sort of a fluke (I originally just wanted to cut the pits out) so I'm glad they turned out so well :D
