I love making bento lunches, and while the more advanced charaben are a bit beyond my skill-level, using cutters and molds can add extra cuteness to any meal!
I also love baking, and recently came across this new collector’s magazine series at the supermarket: ‘Disney Cakes & Sweets’. The first issue is available for the introductory price of $2.99 so I couldn’t resist! It comes with a rather large Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter, which allows you to also stamp Mickey’s facial features into the cookie. The pack also comes with two flexible plastic Winnie the Pooh stencils, and a recipe booklet.
Quick Tip: Use Sweet Shortcrust Pastry
Need an easy option for the cookie dough? I picked up a pack of frozen sweet shortcrust pastry. This is very similar to shortbread, and if you roll it out quite thin it makes lovely biscuits. I bought the Signature Range frozen shortcrust pastry and the biscuits turned out really well.
These Mickey cookies are a little large to fit in a bento box, but they would be so cute wrapped up separately as a morning tea treat. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the other packs in the Disney Baking series!
