    This DIY candy kit is to make a Japanese lunchbox with a variety of ingredients, including panda bear-shaped rice balls, tomato sauce spaghetti, deep fried chicken, and octopus shaped sausages.

Make sure you press the rice into the shape firmly to make beautiful panda rice balls.

    You can place the ingredients you’ve made onto an accompanying sheet or you can use your own lunch box to make it look even more realistic!

    With this DIY kit, you can make confection that not only looks and smells like curry but also tastes like curry too! Other than pouring water into the accompanying mix, you’ll also need to cook it in a microwave. It’s important to knead the dough once it is set and make a clear elephant shape. After cooking the curry and nan in a microwave, the confection will start releasing an authentic, curry-like spicy smell.
