Bento Car Egg Explained

Hello again :)
Remember my Bento Box post showing the car egg?

Since posting this, I've received some emails asking me how I actually created the Bento car egg, so I thought I'd write a short blog post about it so you all can learn about this too. It's really very simple. All you need is an egg mould like this. Ebay might be one of the cheaper options. My purchase came with only two mould but you can get as many as six different ones. The combinations you can get are the vertical ones, so the pig with the bunny, the fish with the car, and the heart with the star. The colours can change, my fish is actually green while the car is blue but in the end they are all the same. When finding these, just Google 'Bento Egg' and some things should come up. On ebay these babies go for about £3 plus shipping which is totally acceptable :)

Someone in blogland posted about the car egg and I just had to have one. The instructions on how to use the mould I found here. I wont bother posting the instructions here as the pictures and explanations on the Just Bento website are amazing and I'm sure you'll agree with me once you've clicked the link above.

Basically all you do is boil the egg, peel the egg while it's warm, put the egg into the mould, submerge them in cold water for about 20mins (I prefer overnight in the fridge though) and your egg has a lovely new shape :)

I hope this answered your question about the car egg, otherwise just let me know :) Happy Bento-ing!
