New Bento's for Molly

So sporadically I will post Bento lunches for Molly. I got a ton of new Bento stuff for Christmas so watch for more Bento posts, it's and obsession! First I got the book Yum-Yum Bento Box... I would HIGHLY recommend it! It is a great tool, they have done a really fantastic job explaining things, giving you templates and ideas as well as resources to get more Bento stuff!

I tried a few new things for this Bento, I got two new egg molds so I had to try those out! The book also talks about coloring the eggs to make them fun colors. So I made a little bunny for Molly and dyed it pink! The book also mentioned little dabs of ketchup for rosy cheeks etc. So that is the little dots on the flowers.

Close up of this tier,. her pink bunny egg, grape tomatoes on a penguin pick, celery with peanut butter and two little candies from her Christmas stocking.

This top tier has cottage cheese in a lettuce cup with pineapple chunks, orange slices, underneath the peperoni and cheese flowers.

Daddy benefited by my experiments his lunch was full of fun stuff too!

Yum-Yum Bento Box review: Love this book, I find it very helpful not just in offering great suggestions for places to get bento supplies but also how you can create fun and easy bentos like the pros!

  1. Very cute! How did you dye the egg so that the nose is white and the body pink?

  2. Gell food dye in water in a rammekin that was just a little less water than would cover it whole, I made sure that the little nose section stuck above the water.

  3. These are terrific! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi! I'm a new follower via Google Friend Connect. :) Found you through the Blog Hop! :) Hopefully you can stop by! I have some great giveaways for Mango Languages Bundle ($250 Value), Pillsbury Toaster Strudels and a $10 Coffee Bean giveaway going on :)
