Bento and Baking

I just entered the Maisie Eats Bento 100th bento giveaway. Go check it out! The deadline for the draw is tonight but if you want to be inspired to make bento, this is the place to be.

Last weekend I made a snack bento - Naomi really loves it and I should make and effort to do it more often. I need some wider containers I think. Too bad Ichiban Kan doesn't ship to Canada. I've ordered a few things on eBay direct from Japan but it was quite expensive.

Last weekend Naomi and I made cupcakes and we had so much fun. She really liked icing the cupcakes and adding sprinkles. I separated the icing into 3 bowls to make 3 colors and then put the icing into baggies and wrapped an elastic at the top, then cut a small hole for the icing to squeeze out. This "smaller" version of a piping bag is much easier for kids to handle and then you can throw the whole mess out! We made minis and regular sized - they didn't last long!
