Moo! said the spotty cow, as the newly hatched chick and bunny family looked on. :)
In this farmtastic bento box there is a cowmooflaged boiled egg, ham and cheese half-sandwich on whole wheat, purple grapes, a few gnarly pickles and some Annie's organic bunny snack mix. The "moo!" letters are provolone cheese and cut with my mini sized alphabet cutter set.
An egg! Yep, that's what that cute cow is!
I used my Tovolo ice cream sandwich press to mold a boiled egg into a cow face, then colored the black spots on it with black food coloring. I wasn't getting nice covering with my black food marker, so I actually used Wilton black food gel and painted it on with a clean paint brush. That might sound crazy (and possibly, it may be) but it was actually really fast (and fun!). Much quicker than using the food markers, actually. The goofy eyes are candy icing decorations and I used a teeny straw to poke in holes for nostrils. :)
