Cinderella with spaghetti bolognese bento

1 Posted by - September 8, 2010 - Bento Art, Lunch bento

Another of Disney’s princess kyaraben, but this time I used spaghetti as the base. We got our first spaghetti bolognese (or bolognaise) order last week for Dora the Explorer. Bad thing happen when we prepared the food as the electricity went off. The good thing was that it’s in the morning so we didn’t need light but I could not take the picture since that day was cloudy. It’s the first time ever that I didn’t have a picture record of our bento.

And as we’ve still got some spaghetti and the bolognese sauce from the order, I decided to make a different character for my record. After some thought I decided to make another one of those princess since lots of people asking me about that so I intended to make them all as soon as possible.

This time was Cinderella’s turn. While the Cinderella story already being told from hundreds of year ago and made into opera, theater, ballet, and movies, I think the most popular is the Disney’s version where I based mine. I couldn’t remember when was the last time I saw Cinderella, but the story is so classic that I’m pretty sure almost anyone know it. We even had this Indonesian version of Cinderella live action movie made in seventies, although I forgot the whole plot (but I’m sure it’s the same since it’s a Disney’s rip-off) and only remember the actress who play Cinderella.

Compared with the other princesses, Cinderella looks older than the others, but maybe it’s because the hair style. The pasta cut is like the usual princess cut; base, upper dress part, hair, face, lips, eyes, eyebrows, and nose line.

For the bento itself, we’ve got spaghetti, ragu bolognese served with shredded cheese and chopped parsley, chicken sausage with omelet shaped like flower, corn, broccoli chunk, cherry tomato, strawberry, and orange slice. I like this bigger container that it can store more foods. And I don’t know why the spaghetti looked very cluttered in the picture while it looked quite okay in real. I also added a slipper and the pumpkin coach pasta from our pasta collection to matched Cinderella theme for this kyaraben.
