For Character Bentos Rose-shaped Wiener Sausages

This is a gorgeous rose-shaped item for bentos.

Ingredients: 2 roses

Wiener sausage
1

Steps

1. Slice the wiener sausage in half.
2. In the rounded end of the wiener halves, make 5-mm deep cuts in the shape of a hexagon as shown. Be careful not to make the cuts too deep, or the flowers will open up too much.
3. It should look like this. The key is to make thin cuts as if you're peeling the skin of the sausage.
4. Next, make shallow cuts into the center, as shown.
5. Boil for 1 minute in boiling water, then they're ready!
