What's this? Can you tell?
It's a hard boiled egg, moulded into the shape of a car!!
I first heard of egg mold at the beginning of last year, when My Busy Craft Life linked up her Bento Car Egg to my Round Tuit linky party. I thought they were such a neat idea!
As you can see, her's looks a little more like a car than mine..
I think perhaps my eggs were a little small for the molds I had.
I got two molds last week:
One for a car and another for a fish.
My kids were really excited to see me try these out and so I boiled them each an egg for their lunches yesterday.
All you do to use the mold is: when the egg is hard boiled, peel off the shell..
Pop it in the mold..
Click it shut, then leave it in the fridge overnight.
Here's how the fish turned out:
Not too exciting, but as I said, I think I need to use bigger eggs next time.
My kids thought they were cool anyway - and considering one of them won't normally eat plain boiled eggs, I figure it's worth squishing them into a fancy shape!!
Have you tried egg molds before?
Disclosure: I received the egg molds from Wholeport in return for mentioning my use of them on my blog. The opinion expressed is mine entirely.
