Bear Flying On Broomstick 巫师小飞熊饭团


Halloween Theme Rice Based Food Art - Bear Flying On Broomstick 巫师小飞熊饭团. 

It's Halloween! 

Thinking of halloween theme, the most iconic scene is probably a witch flying on her broomstick. Transforming the scene into food art, that may be too creepy for young children or at least I know my 8yo won't eat it. So I made a cute friendly bear flying on its sweet little broomstick instead. 





How I made it:


1. Stir fry minced meat. A delicious homey dish that goes really well with rice

2. Portion out the rice, mix in some dark soy sauce and shape it into bear. Add facial details, cape and witch hat using seaweed. 





3. Assemble and serve with more vegetables and steamed egg (not in the pictures).

Crazy Spider Halloween Bento 黐线蜘蛛便当



Rice Based Halloween Theme Food Art - Crazy Spider Bento 黐线蜘蛛便当. A hearty lunch box packed with nutritious and delicious home cooked food. Spider is made of rice wrapped with seaweed/ Nori, side dishes are stir fry broccoli & baby corn with squid, seaweed egg roll and pan fry miso salmon.






When my son came back from school, he asked me if I know any tongue twister that I could teach him. Yes, I know one in Cantonese....

"黐(chi)线(xian)蜘(zhi)蛛(zhu)条(tiao)蜘(zhi)蛛(zhu)丝(si)黐(chi)住(zhu)枝(zhi)树(shu)枝(zhi)" 

...his eyes rolled and asked me to explain the meaning. How to explain? "crazy spider's web sticking on a twig?" ....and the next question is "how", then "why?", "where"....

So to make it simpler to explain, I have made him this halloween theme lunch box. The answer is in there ;)

2. To assemble: Portion out some rice and wrap with seaweed. Fill up half of the lunchbox with the remaining rice, layer some lettuce at the bottom so you don't need to use so much rice. Place the rice ball on the plain rice, add facial details using cheese and seaweed. Cut out 8 thin seaweed to make the spider's legs and a long one as spider's web. Place the rest of the side dishes to fill up the empty space. Serve right away.

Cute Lion King Bread



Animal Theme/ Bread Based Food Art - Cute Lion King Meat Floss Bun. Baking fun shapes bread makes bread-baking more interesting. From turtles to bears to kittens to seals and many more that I have tried, this is one of the easy animal shape bread. 


Cute Lion King Bread


I never attend any bread making classes, all I did was just trial and error. If you think you can't make it or it's too difficult for you, think again...




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In August 2014, I have made my very first lion shape meat floss bun and I wrote:



"I laughed every time I saw these pictures of the animal bun. Just came across some cute animal buns made by others and I thought my boy would love it, so I made for my boy. I made this at night after my boy went to bed because I'm not good in handling bread dough, I need full concentration when doing this. To shape the dough wasn't as easy as decorate cakes with fondant. Bread dough change it's shapes a little after final proofing and I shaped it before the final proofing, that's the challenge!



I made 2 animals... my boy's favourite hippopotamus and lion. Hippopotamus with my dad's homemade kaya filling and lion bun with pork floss. Guess which one my boy likes the most? By animal, he likes hippopotamus, but he likes to eat the lion bun more because he likes bread with pork floss. I made this with Soft Breakfast Bun recipe, the buttery soft buns. 
8 buns never too much for both of us."


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Updated: September 2017.

Revisited this blog post and I have made it again. This time, the lion definitely looks better than my first attempt 3 years ago. :) 

How I made it: 

1. Prepare the dough. Tap to get full recipe here << Soft Breakfast Bun >> 


Soft Breakfast Bun


2. After step 4, shape the bread as follow:




3. After baked, use melted chocolate to draw the facial details.




4. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise around the head and tip of the tail.








5. Add chicken/ pork meat floss on the mayonnaise.
