During the Bento workshop I attended a couple of days ago held by the Bento Mommas, I was able to purchase these cool bread cutters / molders. Even though I haven't experienced using one of these, I bought 2 designs anyway because they were just so darn cute! Not to mention that I believe this will help make my little Rainbow excited to eat her sandwich hehehe.
But here's what I bought first...
A pair of Hello Kitty cutters for the little Rainbow (P140)
And a set of Star Wars cutters (P200) for The Pickiest Eater. (The force is strong in this one!)
During the Bento session, The Bento Mommas showed us that it's better if you press the bread with a rolling pin. This way, it will be easier and more firm to cut with a cookie cutter. And the print from the mold will be clearer.
But since we don't have a rolling pin at home, I improvised by using a mug. Hahaha! And it worked pretty well.
After the rolling action, I started cutting away! I ate the sides hehe. No leftovers! ;-)
And behold, Hello Kitty Cheese Sandwich!
And Star Wars cheese sandwiches! They look pretty good, I'd say!
I can't wait to buy more of these babies! It's addicting! And somewhat therapeutic. Haha! Look at how many stuff they have! It's quite cloying! I love it!!!
I wanted to buy this big Mickey Mouse but it was a bit more expensive (P400). Next time!
I'll definitely get this Mickey and Minnie soon!
