Kidlet has a stuffed Panda that he got for his birthday last year. It went unnamed for a very long time. About a month ago Kidlet was playing and tackled me so I began hitting him with the paw of the Panda *gently of course* He stopped, looked at me and said "What are you doing?" I told him I was beating him with the Panda Paw of Doom. To that I got an eye roll and a "But Mama, it doesn't hurt! He has soft, sweet paddy paws!" And thus the Panda was dubbed PaddyPaws.

Kidlet has PaddyPaws of cheese on top of a soy sausage patty sandwich. To the side are grapes, cucumber, carrots, dressing, and a checkered apple.

And a happy Kidlet with his PaddyPaws!


  1. Super job Jenn! Very artistically rendered!

  2. Oh my gosh, I love the panda! You are very artistic. I could never do something like that. I would need something to trace.

  3. Hello! Love the Bento....replying to your comment about how long it takes to make the Stormtrooper cake (didn't see your email inorder to reply). About 4 1/4 hours (to make cakes, frosting, fondant, and then decorate) which I spread over several days.....I think it would take me longer to make your intricate bentos....they are such art!

  4. Aw, that's such a cute name! My daughter didn't favor stuffed animals when she was little - just a white blanket that traveled with her everywhere like PigPen! We dubbed it the "stinky" blanket because she hated when I washed it!

    How did you get that apple checkered??

  5. Checkered apples are very simple! I made a little how-to here:
