How to use in lunch boxes / bento:

As with the previous cookie cutters, these are perfect for character sandwiches. They can also be used with sliced meats and cheese or how about an “egg sheet ” (Thin egg omelette) dyed with food dye to make the characters in the right colours and shades?

I would be extremely cautious when it comes to ordering from the Eaglemoss website and where
possible I would only buy these magazines in store (as I have been doing).

I ordered a large amount of back copies for some friends in America who cannot get them any
other way. I ordered them on the 22/11/13 and paid for next day delivery.

The magazines didn’t arrive.

Eaglemoss have again made an attempt to fix the issue, one parcel arrived with some of the
missing issues. After another exchange of messages I was told I would received the rest of the
issues when they are back in stock.

A few days later another parcel arrived with a few more copies.

Now to wait for the final few!

DISNEY CAKES AND SWEETS ISSUE 24 LUNCHBOX / BENTO GUIDE

Issue 24 came with 6 silicone, star shaped cupcake cases and 6 fairy food picks.

How to use in lunch boxes / bento

The star shaped, cupcake cases are perfect for lunchboxes. Have children who don’t like certain food to touch other food? No problem. Put them in silicone cases to keep them separate. They’re also helpful for adding colour to lunches. Where in food would you find some of the colours you can get in silicone?

The food picks are great for adding an instant bit of decoration and fun to a lunch. Sadly these picks (the decorative part at least) is made of paper. So using them again and again may not be an option with these particular picks. If however they do disintegrate don’t despair! Simply check out my DIY bento/cupcake topper tutorial post for a way to save and reuse the plastic “stick-y” part.

What recipes are included:
• Pixie Dust Tree Cake part 3
• Bolt’s rocky road bites
• Jake’s peppermint-swirl brownies
• Pinocchio’s crunchy almond cookies
• Mike’s stripy cake pops
• The Wiked Queen’s lemon tart
• Fairy Godmother’s star cupcakes
• Making choux pastry

Valentine’s Bento #2

I’m really getting back into making themed bento again!

Ok so the Valentine’s theme is pretty easy, just lots of hearts right? But hey I’m getting there!

Here is today’s Valentine bento:

20140207-145708.jpg

It contains:

• Vegetable and Rice curry
• Cucumber hearts
• Cherry tomatoes
• Cauliflower cheese
• Mixed vegetables
• Tiny tamagoyaki bites and
• beetroot and celery pickles

All packed in my awesome Hello Kitty box from my friend bentoforkidlet.

Simple Valentine’s Bento

It’s that time of year, when everything is adorned with hearts and shelves filling up with chocolates and teddy bears.

I don’t make as many decoben ( decorated bento ) as I’d like anymore, so I figured it’s about time I get back into it!

Here is my first Valentine’s themed bento :

20140203-153145.jpg

In my Monbento Square is packed:

• Two heart shaped, beetroot sandwiches ( I’m a beetroot addict!)

• heart shaped kiwi

• heart shaped boiled egg

• baby plum tomatoes ( two of which are hearts )

• two lengths of cucumber, with a beetroot juice stained, heart shaped middle and

• celery and beetroot salad.

Who knew celery and pickled beetroot would be one of the most delicious things ever, not me for sure! But I’m glad I tried it! ( There’s some more sitting in the fridge…new favourite food? Maybe )

Do you cool for your Valentine?
