Does this panda bento look delicious?? Well, actually it was but in a different way. This is not actually a bento lunch but a candy kit that you can make to look like a bento. I received the Popin' Cookin' bento kit for Christmas and the kids and myself made it while they were home over the Christmas holiday. I thought it would make for a fun April Fool's Day post :) My kids did eat this bento. They shared it and enjoyed tasting the different candies that we made. I was too chicken to try it.
Since all the directions are written in Japanese I turned to YouTube for a little help. I only had one kit and I wanted to be sure we did not mess anything up. Since I have a million bento boxes, I found a small one in my stash that worked quite well for the candy bento kit. It turned out better than I expected!!
