I have an ice cube tray with blossoms, a heart shaped sandwhich cutter, two pinch bowls, and three egg/pancake shapers. Everything is silicone execpt for the sandwhich cutter.
This is just a close up of the ice cube tray. It has amazing detail to just be from a simple dollar store. Im hoping to use them for gelatin, and try mini onigiri in them. I have been collecting them for about a year with each season so i have hearts, skulls and pumpkins, beach balls, crabs, flamingos, penguins, and tons of others. They are silicone so im hoping it will be easy to get onigiri out of them. Pictures as soon as I use them!
I have also seen things that i think might work similiar to certian bento specific items. Like a butter spreader, for making cubed onigiri. Anyone ever tried that, or have any other tricks and tips?

Another sauce container
These are just pretty basic items that will help add to the super cuteness of my bento meals. I ordered them all from the same site, and at great prices. The bento with the bag, chopsticks and band was only 13.99$ I haven't been able to find any online for less than that. The other small things were no more than 3.50$ a peice. You can find them all @ http://www.allthingsforsale.com<>
Just a little bit of an introduction to my new blog that way if you've stumbled here by mistake you will not be but so lost. I have a new found obsession for bento lunches. They are cutest things i have ever seen. I have just ordered several things and impatiently waiting for them to get here. I know there are a lot of bento junkies out on the web, and so I've decided to track my bento experience online. I'll be uploading photos and all that good stuff as soon as everything arrives. Hopefully I can get some feedback and start a little community of bento beginners like myself ^^
