Bentolicious #168
Cupid is something that we often see around Valentine. A lot of stores, Valentine's cards, flyer, etc. are picturing Cupid. So I tried to make Cupid for today's bento as he is one of the popular icon for Valentine. I used heart food picks for the arrows and glad to have those wing picks for easy use to create this Cupid. And I have to mention that I forgot to create the bow for the Cupid. In the other box : beef onion meat balls, green beans and carrots stir fry, and sweet orange slices.

Yesterday, the area around my house had a black out for 8 hours since the morning. It put me in no mood to prepare bento, so I went to a baking supplies shop instead. I just received the new Wilton's Pops book and wanna try baking some cookies pops this Friday and decorate it on the weekend. Hope everything is ready by Sunday night so the kids can take them to school and share it with their classmates. Wish me luck! That's the plan, don't know whether I just give up half way before even the baking starts LOL :D


Super cute Cupid boy! I haven't even given a single thought to Valentines Day yet. Uh oh. I do look forward to seeing your cookie pop!! I think it's a wonderful idea, since I am a big fan of cookies. It's my favorite sweet.

@sheri fujihara chen : Thanks a lot Sheri! I think baking cookies still will do for me but to decorate them, oh well ... we'll see LOL :D

Cupid is so cute! What a fun lunch for Valentines! :D Cookie baking sounds like fun! I will be doing that tomorrow if they fix my sad broken oven!

@Jenn : Thanks a lot Jenn! Hope your oven will be fixed soon so you can start to bake again :)

oh...cute and pretty Cupid!! Love it. Cookies pops?? Wow...can't wait to see them...hehe...I am thinking to make some nice party food for my son's classmate too..heheh..Enjoy your cookies baking and good luck! :)

@Emily Ng : Thanks a lot Emily! Preparing something to share with their classmates will be a challenge hehehe :D Hope you have fun preparing the food party!

Cute Cupid boy.. Can't wait to see your cookie pops.. Happy baking.

@mama elaine : Thanks a lot Yuli!

as usually.. u always amazed me. I love the way you did to the egg-sheet, they're so smooth.. I've made it too, check my blog
but since I've failed with the sheet (they're bubbling, whereas I've strained the beaten-eggs like you said), i only made these flower shapes.

thank you Lia Chen . xoxo

@Bunda zahraa : Thanks a lot Zahraa! Please try to use low heat to avoid bubble for your egg sheet. Hope this can help :)

You have mad bento skills!! LOL I love Cupid Boy he is so cute!!!

aww..cute little Cupid, and looking forward for your cookie pops, I am sure it will be a success..

and dont forget to give us tutorial too..Thanks in advance, haha

i did use the low heat.. :( but it's still bubling.. i need another practicing time, for sure :D

Aw, this cupid is so cute! I felt in love with him, hehe =) How has you made the skin?
I did not see the missing bow, until you mentioned it ;) It's such a cute boy! Really nice work ;)

@Linsey : hahaha ... Thanks a lot Linsey!

@Bobo : Thanks a lot Florence! Hope everything will be going smooth. First time to try out cookies pops, fingers crossed. Tutorial? No need lah ... Everything in Wilton's Pops book is pretty clear :)

@Bunda zahraa : Mine not always smooth all the time. Sometimes the wrinkle or bubbling one is great to give a different effect too :)

@Lil'chan : Thanks a lot Lil'chan! I used few drops of light soya sauce and mixed it with rice to get the skin tones color :)

This is the cutest thing <3

Cupid is adorable! Happy Valentine's Day Lia! You are so talented, I can't wait to see what kind of pops you make.

@Uniflame : Thanks a lot Cynni!

@OhayoBento : Thanks a lot Heather! You are so sweet. I will try my best *fingers crossed*

Love the Cupid, very cute! last I can see your baking soon Lia :) Did you get anything at Phoon Huat or BIY when you're at S'pore?

So sweet Cupid! You use the picks so nicely! He is just adorable ♥
I was out of internet connection in the morning (now that you mention the black out)... I would have LOVED to go to the baking supplies shop with you!
Hope you manage to bake the cookie pops! I am sure they will be amazing ^_^

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Ann! I didn't have a chance to go to Phoon Huat or BIY from my last trip. But definitely have to visit for the next trip on March. Hope we can meet up too :)

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Lilian! Me too ... me too ... Will be a lot of fun to go to baking supplies shop with you, knowing that you are the expert in baking. Sometimes when I went there, I found so many baking tools that I've never seen before. Don't know if they are exist LOL :D

Oh my gosh Lia, your Cupid is so cute and sweet! :) Absolutely perfect for Valentines Day.

So cute!! It looks like Cupid is all rested and ready to do some match-making.
