An egg experiment

Today was pizza day at Faith's school, so no bento for her.

To make up for the lack of a lunch post, I decided this would be a good time to post another egg experiment.

As stated on Monday, I made boiled eggs. But since they are for Faith, they had to be cool boiled eggs, not just plain round ones. Now, I had 2 egg molds prior to this experiment (a star and a heart) but I also have some brand new ice cream molds that can double as egg molds from Williams Sonoma. I ordered them when I ordered F&B personalized aprons for Christmas. I've been wanting to use them, but the last few boiled eggs I have made have been for egg salad and shaped eggs do not fit into my handy-dandy egg slicer. As our saga continues, I boiled the eggs, I let them sit in boiling water, then I peeled them instead of submerging them in cool water. I placed them in the ice cream molds (and 1 actual egg mold because I had 3 eggs) and put them in the fridge.

Ice cream molds don't stay shut tightly, so I basically bungee-d them shut with rubber bands, like so:


Today, I removed the eggs from the molds and voila! I have a funky cow & pig shaped egg:


I showed them to Shaun & Ben, then put them on the kitchen counter for a moment. Ben sat on the floor next to them and cried because he wanted the cow egg. :o(

  2. It fits. They are already boiled, but hot, so they take the shape of the molds. Remind me when you're here on Tuesday and I'll show you.
