Bento Finds

Here are my bento finds from our recent vacation. One of these days I'll actually post some vacation photos, but right now it's hard to narrow them down to just a few.

There may have been a couple more items, but these are the ones I remember right now. And no, I didn't find any actual bento boxes (though the round one will work for something) in West Virginia.

- 4 plastic rounds to go under cakes. I thought these might be cute for bento photo backgrounds. Found them at IKEA for almost nothing. That's what I love about IKEA. Good thing there isn't one in Alaska.

- mini silicone baking cups

- Cupcake Creations papers in eclaire & muffin top shapes. Found these in a kitchen store in the Strip District in Pittsburgh, PA. They say you can bake in them without using a pan. I've been wanting to make muffin tops for a while now, but I don't have a pan. These should do the job.

- chocolate cat cookies from Trader Joe's. These are quite tasty and I thought they would be cute tucked into a bento lunch. Now I just have to make a couple of bentos before we eat all the cute kitty cookies.

- round plastic container with locking sides. There were 2 of these, but one didn't survive the trip back home. :( sniff, sniff. The surviving container is the smaller of the 2.

  1. I love the plastic cake rounds, that would be perfect for under a bento in a photo shoot! The muffin rounds are interesting! Great finds...don't you just love it? I need to go to Ikea, the closest one is an hour away!
