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
• Choux pastry recipes

This awesome and very stylised mould can be used like any other silicone mould: to make frozen yoghurt / sauces, melted cheese characters but sadly will probably be too shallow to use for eggs or rice.

(Fingers crossed I’m wrong and they will make awesome printed eggs )

What recipes are included:
• Aladdin’s Genie cake part 3
• Syndrome’s floating islands
• Marie’s pretty popcorn cones
• Pooh Bear’s honey and vanilla cookies
• Princess Atta’s toffee pears
• Huey, Dewey and Louie’s brownies

Let’s see if they do ever turn up!

Disney Cakes and Sweets Issue 13 Bento Guide

I bought the 13th issue of Disney Cakes and Sweets but totally forgot to write the blog post! Sorry!!

It must be the whole “rushing trying to sort out Christmas gifts for everyone” thing that is slowly pushing everything else out of my brain.

Anyway here is the 13th issue in all of its glory!!

20131206-180409.jpg

This issue came with an awesome Sully (from Monsters Inc/ Monsters University) which now means you can make a Sully and/or a Mike bento (providing you bought issue 5 ) by using the cutter on sliced cheeses and meats. Or maybe even use it to mould rice!

It also came with a double ended fondant moulding tool, not quite sure how this could be used in bento. If you have some ideas why not let me know by leaving a comment!

Disney Cakes and Sweets Issue 12 Bento Guide

Today’s (early) issue of Disney Cakes and Sweets came with some awesome Disney alphabet cutters that are the perfect size for bento! It also came with some fair tags which I’m not sure I’ll use but hey, it was worth it for the alphabet cutters alone!

20131127-215652.jpg

Look how awesome the cutters are!!! I’ve wanted some tiny alphabet cutters for a long time but could never settle on any that I liked and that were in my price range. Then this happens! Cheap enough for me to be happy and I instantly needed them the moment I saw them in last week’s issue in the “next week” preview! I mean, some of the letters have tiny Micky heads in them to make the holes in the letters, you want them too right?

How to use in bento

I’m guessing you’re seeing a theme here? They’re cutters so just like the previous cutters they are perfect for sliced cheese and meats or anything else thin enough to be cut by them. These cutters have a hand little stick on the back of each cutter to help with positioning and cutting 🙂
