gingerbread guy & smorgasbord bento

Little bento for a day spent on the run!
Gingerbread sandwiches bento

- gingerbread man shaped peanut butter sandwich (run, run, run! fast as you can!)
- mini basil tortellini in a silicone cup w/ a sprinkle of parmesan
- Sunchips
- gingerbread man shaped fruit leather
- itty bitty lady apple
- clementine orange "ornament" & blackberries
- little sauce cup of marinara (for the tortellini)
- tucked in back is a minty marshmallow from Trader Joe's (Heavenly good!)

Whew! That's a lot in such a small space!

The gingerbread sandwich was made with an ice cream mold/press. It's hard to tell in this photo, but there is an impression of all the gingerbread details pressed in the bread. I popped two little icing eyes on his face for a slightly endearing deranged appearance and some small sprinkles down his front for buttons.

The clementine has a little hat pick in the middle. I thought that would make it look like an ornament. But it actually just looks like a clementine with a hat pick stuck in the middle. Huh. Go figure. ;-)

Pin It

I am so enjoying these holiday bentos!! Could you share the link for the online baking store where you found the sweet little hat picks that you used for the snowman egg and sandwhich?

I've heard that hats are very fashionable in the clementine community this year.

I agree, the holiday bentos are wonderful. I like how you mirrored the gingerbread sandwich with the cut out fruit leather. And I can completely see the gingerbread details pressed in there!
