Over the last couple of years, I have amassed a drawer full of musubi molds- some that I have purchased and others that were given to me. Mark shakes his head at me whenever he sees me rummaging through it, although he has said before that he’s glad that I’m into collecting cooking gadgets instead of jewelry. I’ll have to take a picture of my musubi molds and post it one day. I found two different sized bird molds and decided to do a family of them- Papa, Mama, and Baby bird. The pink flower and beaks are from the pink part of the kamaboko (Japanese fish cake), and the wings are cut from bologna and secured with angel hair pasta to the musubi. Paige’s lunch included teriyaki steak, a SPAM flower, grapes, and veggies.

I was at the Marukai Wholesale Mart in Honolulu yesterday and found a large assortment of bento tools and accessories. The wheel cutters, pictured above to the left, are very versatile and come with a great instructional booklet all for $12.99. I already had a set of these which I still use quite often! The cutters to the right were $2.89 and come with a stencil as well as the cutters. When put together you can make the whale bento as pictured on the package.
In addition to the cutters, I found these musubi molds! The set on the left consisted of a plane, car, boat, and train mold for $9.97. The set on the right had a rabbit, elephant, lion, pig (or cat), and a dog mold for $12.99. They also had other bento accessories available but these were the only ones that I had picked up.
