Angry Birds theme onigiris

It’s been a long time ago since my last post. I’m really really sorry that I haven’t been able to keep up with new contents, it’s not that I haven’t made any kyaraben at all; in fact I made tons of kyaraben during past two months that kept me away from posting. Lots of new projects came in such as kyaraben orders, with almost each week attending workshop with moms and kids, interview with magazines and TVs, and with one book project that still waiting.

The first Angry Bird onigiri  project I did was such a hit that I really want to do more of them. So when I’ve got time to do it then I gotta do it since I really can’t predict when we’ll get new orders.

This time I made 5 (five) special Angry Birds theme onigiri: regular green pig, mustached green pig, green pig King, red angry bird, and yellow angry bird. As usual, the green colored rice was made with white rice mixed with peas paste with eyes from cheese, ears from edamame, nose and mouth from cucumber, and other details were made from nori. The mustache was cut from carrot and the crown was from kabocha (while carrot can do the job perfectly fine also).

The angry birds on the background was made with colored rice: red from red yeast rice and yellow from kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) with details made from baby carrot, carrot slice, cucumber skin, cheese, and nori.
