i used the same silicon moulds again. =) this time to cook an egg. i separated the egg white and yolk because i wanted yellow for the bear’s muzzle and middle part of the flower. i didnt whisk the egg, hoping for a smooth sheet (less air bubbles?). all went well, until i poured the egg yolk. lesson learnt here is that , don’t pour until the egg white is almost 20-30% cooked.
i had more success with the flower, although i would like a smaller yellow circle.
also in these bentos, butter sandwich, chocolate biscuits and bunny apples.
all the facial expressions here were cut with a set of new punchers which i just gotten yesterday. silly me, i placed the panda’s nori per the puncher picture not realising that the ‘brows’ are actually the panda’s ears! have you seen a panda with eye brows? well, now you have. haha..
these are my new bento loot! a dear friend helped to buy these bento gadgets from hong kong. she also shared half of her newly acquired cute food picks that i didnt ‘order’ but like to have. hugs and kisses !! thank you to dee too, another round of hugs and kisses!! (being asian, it is easier to write than to do that physically) for helping to co-ordinate the purchase. a natural ‘sales coordinator’, eh? ;P
a short review of the 6 punchers –
i didnt get a complete cut with one ‘press’. each time there will be one or two spoilt eyes, spoilt mouth, i.e. i gotta pressed a few times to get a complete nice set of the facial expression. having said this, i probably will still buy them even if i had known this earlier. sigh… what to do? i am a bento gadgets collector.
i will try the ‘horse shoe’ puncher and blog about it next.
i am also getting my sugar eyes, kindly ordered by another sweet bento mama. yipee! my charaben will have beautiful round eyes apart form the two little ‘nori dots’ . hehe..
happy midweek all !! =)
