Birthday Bento

So my 24th birthday was June 16th, and I wanted to make a bento to celebrate (Although I made this bento a few days before, because I had other plans on my birthday). I wanted to make a sandwich look like a cake, but I didn't have round cookie cutters, so I cut the bread to make it look like a slice of cake instead.
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Layer of Nutella
  • Layer of Peanut Butter
  • Another Layer of Nutella
  • Fluff as the frosting (I warmed it in the microwave for a few seconds so it would be easy to spread and it would dry hard enough to touch without getting messy)
  • Chocolate sprinkles
 It's easier to see the layers in this picture
No Birthday cake is complete without a candle
  • Cake sandwich
  • Strawberries
  • Balloon Grapes
  • Apple sauce in a present shaped silicone cup (with heart cinnamon)
  • 24 Baby carrots (one for each year)
  • Spinach (can't really see it)
  • Hummus

Here you can see the present detail better, and the grapes and strawberries weren't cut off from the picture.
Happy Birthday!!!


  1. What a fun idea!
    I found your blog via What's for Lunch at I just made the decision to start serving Bento lunches to my daughter and I have lots to learn. I'll be visiting lots of blogs!

  2. I LOVE the cake sandwich! And microwaving the fluff is a great idea! I'll be sure to remember this for a school lunch treat for my boys birthdays! You are so creative with your bentos. I love getting inspiration from you! Thanks for sharing!
