This must be the first time I am making myself a birthday bento. This bento was made couple of days ago as we have been out most of the weekend and will be on a short trip today.
I put in some of my favourite characters, Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma, celebrating with a Hello Kitty cake.
Rilakkuma was made with rice and teriyaki sauce, and the Hello Kitty cake made with mashed potato. I also added some of my favourite dishes – tamagoyaki, steamed corn and stir fried spinach with mushrooms.
I wanted to bake a cake too, more for the kids, as they kept asking if Mommy will have a birthday cake. But we were simply too rushed for time over the past few days, so no birthday cake this year. 🙂
