How To - Charaben Tiger by Demi-Plum How To - Charaben Tiger by Demi-Plum
I made this tutorial as a photography project. I decided to make it about bento because many people have been wanting tutorials from me concerning bento. This is the first of hopefully many more to come.
The recipe came from Yum-Yum Bento Box. It's Pikko's Tiger Cubs.
The bento is my Zodiac Bento for January, the Tiger.
The hands are my mother's, all she did was pose though, I did everything from making the onigiri to the lighting. It was fun though!
Please Enjoy~!

SO CUTE!!! I want to make these right this instant, except I just got done making normal onigiri!

If you're interested, here's a carrot rice recipe that is super delicious! It might make the tigers more orange~ [link]

:heart: Thanks for sharing!

You do? : ) I wasn't sure if you had seen her site before not, so I didn't want to assume. But yes, I love looking through all those recipes! If only I could cook better ^_^;

Could Siracha work instead of ketchup?

I don't see why not. I never say you have to stick with the recipe, I always encourage exploration in the kitchen.

I tried to make ongiri one time.Put a little too much water in the rice...

you have to know first how to make rice before you make onigiri. And you have to have special japanese style sticky rice.

I know how to make rice, I just keep failing at my measurements lol.Have you ever made Sweet Mangos with Sticky rice?It's so good*>*

Demi-Plum Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
oh, i never measure the water, I only measure the rice because I know 1/3 of a cup will be enough for me.

No I haven't

ZombieGaGaloo Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011
I don't measure the water either.I'm always thinking"Okey,just a little more water" and BAM the rice turns out pretty bad..I'll probably get it right next time.

You should try making it.It's real easy.

If you arn't making it right without measuring then you need to measure it.

I'm sure, I probably have the recipe in one of my cookbooks.

Lol,the only reason why I do that is I make soup waaay to much^^

Make it!It'll look really cute in bento.

Then you should measure if you're making rice.

It's when I have time to do it. I hardly have time for things anymore.
