First of all, I would like to remind everyone who is interested to win some bento goodies to take part in the 1st Anniversary Giveaway before the closing date on 22nd Oct 2010, Friday midnight Malaysia time (GMT+8).
Of course I wanted to say a big thank you to all who has submitted your entries for your support. Wish you all good luck!
All right, back to the topic now. I received a few queries from friends and readers of the blog on how to make the candy sausages which I made for the bento demo session last weekend. Most of them would like to use the idea for upcoming parties.
Therefore I decided to do a quick step-by-step tutorial as I think this candy sausage snack is a good one for party. Most importantly it is quite easy to prepare and it doesn’t need special bento tools.
All you need was a small kitchen knife, toothpicks and mini sausages to make these cute candy sausages.
1. Use the kitchen knife to cut off the two pointed end of a mini sausage.
2. Made three or four slight diagonal cuts to the center part of the sausage. This will give the candy sausage some visible patterns after being cooked.
3. Boiled the sausage and set aside to let it cool down.
4. Turn the two ends of the sausage with the pointed part towards the inside, and join them up with a toothpick.
We are done with the candy sausage only in four steps!
This was the candy sausages plate that I made previously.
Hope you have a great time making this snack. To all who has sent me queries, I hope this tutorial is useful for you.
Happy bento-ing and Happy Monday to everyone! Wish everyone a great week ahead!
