This is bobi’s first attempt at cute cooking! But she has made some amazing Totoro related stuff before:

The cupcakes where inspired by our love of Totoro and all things Studio Ghibli!

It was a fairly standard cupcake recipe, and the decorations were made from a template Bobi drew in Photoshop, printed out and then cut out in fondant icing (a small amount of black food coloring was added to to make gray) with a scalpel, and then the edges were smoothed by hand to give a nice rounded edge. The different layers were stuck together using a thick icing glue. The eyeballs were made by rolling a tiny ball, the pupils, nose and chest patterns were painted on in black food coloring with a toothpick!

I’ve been posting on Flickr bento groups for 3 years, and I opened my blog 2 years ago when I realised there was absolutely nothing on bento in French. I came accross bento and cute cooking while researching on how to make sushi. I’d been packing my lunches for like, ever, so I was seduced immediately.

This Totoro bento was actually a surprise for a bento-friend. I dont usually do charaben, but this friend is a Totoro freak, and with other French bento addicts we decided to post a Totoro-themed bento on our blogs on the same day, for him. I had lots of fun doing this and making this bento.

It contains:
-on the bottom, shredded iceberg lettuce (to make the bento less hearty, I’m not a big eater)
-iceberg lettuce leaves. They’re perpect because of their large leaves)
-blanched brocoli for trees
-chibi totoro is a hard-boied quail egg, eyes of cheese and nori
-totoro is made of sushi rice mixed with black sesame paste, regular white cheese (cant remember now what kind) and nori
-ground is made of smoked salmon

Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations show on Discovery Travel Channel is one of my favorite programs. (I even recreated the Tokyo episode with my friends!)

In the Seattle episode, Bourdain visits a butcher shop and sees an intriguing display… ground pork shaped like a cute piggy’s head! “So the pig was ground up and reconstituted. Clever.”

WEIRD, CUTE JAPANESE SNACKS & JUNK FOOD FROM TOKYO SUPERMARKET: POKEMON AND ANPANMAN CURRY, HELLO KITTY, POWER RANGERS.

August 16, 2009 at 18:44 | Posted in Cute Food Photos | Leave a comment

Packaging is what sells a product, right? In a Tokyo supermarket, there is a wide selection of curry – so why not choose the one with your favorite kawaii character’s face on it? Would you pick Hello Kitty, Power Rangers, Anpanman, or Pokemon?

Caramel Corn doesn’t sound very appealing to me… but the winking and lip-licking bags have got my attention!

Ramen chicken flavored snacks? No thanks… not even with a plump-cheeked little boy on the bag.

These are probably laden with calories, but who can resist such adorable faces?

HAM, CHEESE, RICE BENTO BOX LUNCHES, STRANGE JAPANESE FOOD TREND. CUTEST DECORATED KID’S SCHOOL LUNCHES, GIRL’S FACE AND CARS.

August 14, 2009 at 18:41 | Posted in Cute Food Photos | Leave a comment

Slices of ham, cheese, and carrot are the perfect building blocks for making a cute bento lunch. Start with a base of rice, slice some facial features, and layer. Cute toothpicks and cutlery help keep things in place.

Japanese bento lunches can be quite intricate. Rice shapers and cutter tools help reduce the work load. PS: this sample bento is made of plastic!

Seaweed and cheese are great ideas for facial features, and check out the adorable octopus hotdog! I show you how to make these in my book Cute Yummy Time, now available for pre-order here.

In my book, I also explain the technique of cutting baked egg sheets into animal shapes. Ketchup is a fun and yummy decoration method.

Anyone a fan of takoyaki (Japanese octopus balls)? How cute is this little felt guy with an angel halo?
