Bento # 153 – Hinamatsuri Bento

Hinamatsuri or known as Girl’s Day is approaching and I almost forgot about this special day if not because Miss. Shirley of  Little Miss Onigiri posting about her special Hinamatsuri bento course in Singapore.

Thanks Shirley  for the indirect reminder 🙂 And if you are living in Singapore and interested to learn about bento, you can check the information here at her blog

During Hinamatsuri which also known as The Japanese Doll Festival held on March 3rd, family with daughter will display the  set of Japanese dolls  on stacks of platform. There are rules in the setting of the dolls, the top platform is for the emperor and empress and followed by 3 court ladies on the second platform and then  5 musician on the third platform. On the forth platform they will be 2 minister (left and right minister) and then 3 samurai on the fifth platform. The last 2 platform (fifth and sixth) will be displaying assorted miniatures of the palace furniture.

I do not have enough skill nor patience to create  all the characters so I decided to go for the Emperor and Empress only for my bento.

Below I present you my Hinamatsuri lunch bento featuring the emperor and empress, their face were from ham decorated with Nori, while their Kimono were from egg sheet.

I use higher temperature to get some brownish texture on the egg  for the emperor ‘s robe and I add some corn pepper to get some red motif for the empress’s kimono. In case if you wonder, the bottom part as background was fried rice 🙂

Happy Girl’s Day all …

        Think it’s the unconcious association of bento making moms or something haha
