I had a little extra time yesterday morning so I was able to make this Penguin themed bento. I’ve already seen photos of this while searching online, so I have a pretty good idea how to go about it. My only concern was if I can cut freestyle the outline of the penguin’s face using “nori”. I tried to make a pattern but eventually ditched that idea. I used regular kitchen scissors to make the cut out. A special bento food scissors would be better I think for a more precise and cleaner look. I still need to source for one at Amazon. It’s really not that hard as it looks.
Shape the rice into a ball using plastic wrap. Make sure the rice is warm so that it will hold it’s shape. Then position the “nori” on rice and gently mold it in place.
