Rilakkuma Hinamatsuri bento

I made an early Hinamatsuri bento. Hinamatsuri, or Girl’s Day in Japan, falls on March 3. Typically, platforms covered with red carpets are used to display ornamental dolls, symbolising the Emperor, Empress, and other court attendants.

Today’s Hinamatsuri bento features Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma dressed as the Emperor and Empress respectively. I made these out of mashed potato, and their imperial gowns made using spinach. The Emperor’s baton and Empress’s fan are made using cheese.

Sides include broccoli, carrots, strawberries, a ham flower and fried chicken.

I will try to make another Hinamatsuri bento next week if I manage to find time to do so.
