Ice Cream Sandwiches OR… ??

I was spring cleaning my basement and found a bunch of unique baking tools that I haven’t used in a while. A lot of them brought back sweet memories of when I first started on this journey of becoming a sugar artist, of when I was a poor university student who couldn’t afford these expensive toys and of a simpler time when I first started DREAMING. Now, I am living my dream and I love where I am. Looking back at these tools stir up fluttery butterflies in my stomach as I SMILE and reflect on how far I’ve come.

During this time, I’ve also become resourceful. How so, you ask?

I bought a Williams-Sonoma Ice Cream Sandwich Maker because I just couldn’t resist! It wasn’t that expensive but it was still from Williams Sonoma. It’s used to make ice cream sandwiches… like this :)

Aren’t these cute?? Brownies sandwiched with ice cream!
Doesn’t get much better than that :) OR DOES IT??

Oh, yes it does!! Piggy & Cow-shaped boil eggs!

I couldn’t sleep one morning so I made this up. Here’s how I did it!

Step 1 – Boil the eggs

Step 2 – Prepare your molds

Step 3 – Peel the egg and put it in the mold (you have to do it when the egg is hot – which was painful to my fingers! But it’s worth it!)

Step 4 – Assemble the mold and secure it with rubber bands for about 10-15 minutes (the ghetto way but it works—I’m thinking with the Asian side of my brain 😉 )

Step 5 – Reveal your whimsical-shaped egg!

I think it’s hilarious how the piggy-shaped egg is sitting atop a piggy-print plate.

There you have it! Enjoy :)

***Please excuse my low quality photos with poor lighting. I took these a lonnnnng time ago and I’d like to think my photography and food styling skills have gotten better. We’ll just see about that! :)
