Care Bears made of rice, carrots, and hot dogs


Want to make a special edible Care Bears lunch for your kid (or yourself)? This is just one of many fun cartoon-themed bento box recipes in a new book by Face Food author Christopher Salyers called Face Food Recipes. Making neat, creative bentos is a Japanese tradition that has recently taken off as a web phenomenon; there are lots of blogs that showcase lunch boxes themed after everything from video games to traditional woodblock print art.

    Maybe I just don’t get it. Yes, cute, but qould you want to eat it?
