Best bentos of 2014

And just like that, 2014 is coming to an end. Hope 2015 will be an even better year!

To round off 2014, I’ve summed up my favourite 14 bentos of this year, not in any particular order.

1. Smiling face burger bento

This burger looks so cheerful! Definitely brings a smile to my face when I see it. Did I also mention it was yummy? Love how simple it was to make too!

2. Rilakkuma Bee Mine Valentine’s bento

I love this set of Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma dressed up as bees. Rilakkuma and Friends is one of my favourite characters to make for bento, as you can tell they make frequent appearances. I also love this theme – “Be(e) Mine” for Valentine’s Day.. geddit?

3. Road trip bento

Omurice is one of my favourite dishes, and this was such a fun and cheerful bento I made right before we went to Legoland. The kids had a great trip and have been asking to go back, so this is definitely a favourite with good memories!

4. Sakura viewing bento

I love the pretty shades of pink in this bento, looking at this now I can’t wait for spring to be here again so I can make some spring-themed bentos! Z3 also loves the sakura denbu I used in this bento, he always asks for more helpings of rice if sakura denbu is used.

5. Star Wars cosplay bento

Need I say more? I love dressing up characters for bentos. This piece of food art combines Minions and Star Wars.. can’t think of a better combination!

7. Little Twin Stars bento

This was the first time I tried using edible oblate sheets in bento, and am very pleased with the results. This drawing was easy to do and I thought it looked quite sweet in a bento.

8. Totoro burger bento

Totoro has become one of my favourite bento characters this year, and I’ve made quite a few Totoro creations ever since. I liked the ingredients in this, so fun to carve out Chu Totoro on an apple slice!

9. Hare and Tortoise Race bento

It was so fun to make a race track in a bento for the hare and tortoise! I also remember how the kids liked this bento, so definitely makes for fond memories.

10. Pusheen maki sushi bento

Again, I like the clean lines of this bento, and it was also the first time I made tamagoyaki successfully!

11. Ghost sushi bento

This year also marked the year I had a bit more success with making sushi art rolls, although I keep the sushi rolls relatively simple. This ghost sushi was fun to make and I was quite happy with how it turned out. Believe me, I’ve wrecked enough sushi rolls previously, LOL.

12. Monsters Inc bento

My first (and only, so far) Monsters Inc bento, but I love how the blue deco-furi turned out when mixed with rice.

13. Rilakkuma Christmas wreath bento

Probably my favourite Christmas themed bento made for this year. Again featuring my favourite Rilakkuma and Friends 🙂

14. Spongebob pasta bento

Yes I know I only posted it couple of days ago, but I love how easy it was to make. Spongebob is also a growing favourite character to make for bento, and he has made more appearances in my bentos this year.

There, my 14 favourites for this year. I tried including one bento from each month of the year, and I hope some of your favourites are in here too! Thank you all for reading and visiting my blog, and hope you will enjoy more of my bentos and food art next year!

Wish everyone a Happy New Year!
