Food Art with Egg Molds!

Hard boil some eggs for a fun mini food art project : )
Peel them while they are still hot, and place them in a clean egg mold.
The trick is finding the perfect size eggs to fit your molds.
And in a matter of minutes you will have "food art"!
I usually boil my eggs for 9-10 minutes
Ta da! On the left is a fish! On the right a car! lol
Fish & Car Egg Mold
They're really great fun : )
Thank you to my friend Lena for sending me these from Japan last year.
The reason I decided to bust them out again was to share with my cousin Chuong who was visiting me from CA.  He had never seen them before so it's interesting to him : )

My fish is missing a tail!  ahhh!
I don't put my mold into cold water (as some tutorial suggest).
I find that it works perfect if you peel the egg right when it's still hot (careful though!)
I picked up two for my Grandma & Aunt so they can experience the fun too!
They only have stars & heart molds at Daiso in Westlake Center (Downtown Seattle)
I haven't been able to find them in the Daiso in the International District (Chinatown Area).
There are a bunch of Daiso stores in WA.  I know you can also find them at many Japanese markets, but they're much more expensive than at the Japanese dollar stores.

I found them at Daiso (Japanese $1.50 Store here in Seattle).
My aunt called me and was so confused lol.  I had to explain to her how to use it :D

You can also find them on Ebay, Cindy (Facebook Friend) linked me HERE
They have so many different fun shapes!
Super cute right?  I mean super kawaii! :D
The Japanese come up with everything adorable lol.

Speaking of Facebook!  I have a new Facebook account  :)
Please check it out if you'd like.

You should also GOOGLE "IMAGE" "Japanese Egg Molds" 
There are so many freaking cute molds! 

I'm still trying to get used to the new blogger way of posting.  I kind of miss the old school way of posting blog.  
It's harder for me to move my photos around in the order that I like them grr.

I'll figure it out!  Will be back with a "nail art" post in a bit : )
