Hello Kitty Pancake Bentos

Owner Lyñ (My Little Messy N Cheeky) SG ⌚ 7:47 PM
This is already the 3rd going to 4th week since school term starts. Finally I can start making bentos for the girls again after about 1mth of resting and there are so many new bento stuffs still unwrapped, waiting for me to try out on them!
This time I don't have to ask Messy what she wants for her bento, instead she told that she wanted french toast (AGAIN?). As I had already planned to make pancakes with the big Hello Kitty or Pooh Bear mold, I promised Messy that I'll make the french toast some other days. Lucky she wasn't unhappy about the change and in fact she was also very excited and happy to have a big Hello Kitty pancake!
Few days before sch term starts, I went to the supermarket to buy pancake mix. I don't have any particular brand that I prefer, I always like to try out different brands. Then I saw this interesting new brand whereby it comes in plastic bottle form, all you need to do is to add water to the water level indicated and shake for 1min. I find that very convenient, most importantly, so easy to mix the flour and water well. After finishing all the batter inside, I washed and kept the plastic bottle for future use. :thumbsup:

This is the fun 'Shake Shake' Pancake Mix I used

My Hello Kitty Mold from J-Mama & Baby
Messy's Hello Kitty Pancake with Honey Syrup in a small container
Cheeky's Hello Kitty Pancake with Honey Syrup in a small container
The girls are happy to see their Hello Kitty pancake and requested to have it again but maybe a different face of... Pooh Bear pancake? ;)
Hopefully I'm able to get more even tone of the pancakes the next time so that the Hello Kitty or Pooh Bear face don't look so ugly and patchy. :D
*I made these pancakes on 29th June 2011, the second day when school term starts. From now on, I only need to prepare bento for the girls twice a week because Messy says that her school's time-table has changed, making her school bag too heavy to even squeeze in a small bento box? /:)
Hopefully this is just teeempooorarrrry... Otherwise, all my bento gadgets will be collecting dust!:(

So cute! I like it when kids know what they want...even if it's the same thing day after day :D My daughter eats almost everything now, but not when she was in grade school.

Tks Lyndsey! :D
Yeah, it's better this way so that we've a better idea of what to prepare for them rather than not knowing what they want and ended up they don't like/not eating what we make! lol
So glad to know and happy for you that your daughter eats almost everything now! Is it the power of making bentos for her? ;)
Have a great weekend! ^.^

Great Hello Kitty, I'm sure your kid's loved this. Reminds me of how much my daughter loved her micky mouse pancakes when she was little :) Hope you are having a wonderful summer.

Lyn, I absolutely love the Hello Kitty pancake bento! It's now 1:30am and I am starting to get hungry, maybe pancakes for breakfast tomorrow? :)

Tks Chris! :D
Yes, my girls love them so much and kept going 'WOW! WOW!' the moment they saw their Hello Kitty pancakes! lol
Mickey Mouse pancakes must be very attractive! Maybe I should try making one too but w/o the mold though... :)
Hope you have a great weekend too! Enjoy! ^.^

HI Lyn...sweet hello kitty pancake!
I do not yet make any figured pancake. I still have problem too in patchy results hahaha...perhaps someday, hopefully
But it's great that Messy knows what she wants for her box :p

Such a cool mum, aren't you Lyn. Hahaha.
You know that little effort sticks forever. I still remember my mum handsewn my canvas-linen backpack when I was 3 in Korean childcare place. She sew a flower and an elephant. It's looks so cool to be slightly different than other kids with the same bag in class. (not that it's a manly thing, but I was too little to notice).
Surely your kiddo will remember this fondly.

Tks so much for your lovely comment Yenny! :D
Hope to see your cutie pancakes soon and I'm sure your kids will be very happy and asking for more! :D
Yeah, count myself lucky that both my girls know what they want most of the time bcoz there aren't really a lot of varieties they like in their boxes! Do you realize that most of their bentos are filled with almost the same kinda food every now & then? lol :P
That's why some times I feel that it's so difficult for me to have different 'themes'... anyway, that's alright, as long as they like & finish up everything, I'm already very happy! ^.^

Tks so much for your kind words Pierre!:D
What if they forgotten about all these in future? That's okay, never mind, bcoz I still have got this blog of ours! lol xD
Gosh! You still remember that when you're only 3yrs old!? Hmm... this shows that you're a person who appreciates, a filial son who loves his mom a lot and is very close to her...? :)

Aw, this is such a cute pancake! I remember my school bag being completely stuffed with books almost every day, and when we also had sports or swimming lessons on a day, we had another bag, and it was really a lot to carry. :S I hope you'll be able to go on making bento for your girls on most days!

Yeah I hope too! But Messy's bag is really very heavy and I feel so sad about it... :(
Whenever I send her to sch, I always wanted to carry her sch bag but she always tell me that it's alright, she'll carry it herself... I'm happy that she's so independent :)

My daughter will envy this hallo kitty pancake!!! You are such a good mom making these special pancakes for the kids. I'm too lazy and always making just simple round pancakes. =P

Lyn your pancake is amazing..I think this breakfast is the winner for any girl! Thank you for sharing..I have to look for those:))

@Nami- You flattered me Nami! I used to make simple round pancakes for the girls too when I don't have the Hello Kitty Mold yet and frankly, I don't even cook after I'd my 2nd girl! We'd either eat out or at my Mom's place. Even if I cooked, it'd be the very simple and fast just-dump-whatever-I-can-find-in-my-fridge PORRIDGE! (Lucky my girls love it and I only cooked upon their request. Thinking back, I really feel so bad...) It's only after Cathy came about 1yr plus back then I started to cook everyday. Hee... :P
Hope you've a great weekend! ;)

@Sandra- Tks for your lovely comments! Yeah, Hello Kitty really wins over lots of girls' hearts! Not only young little girls, even adults too! lol :D
You can click on the J-Mama & Baby link to check it out. They've got lots of cute stuffs! ^.^

Hope you've a great weekend! ;)

That's such a novel idea! Your kids will appreciate all the effort, I'm sure. I just saw that exact same pancake mix in Cold Storage here in KL and was quite taken by it but didn't buy. Prefer to do it the old fashion way.

Wait, did u fry the pancake 1st thn mould with the cutter?!

Tks Alice! I'm glad that you like this HK pancakes! :D

Yes, you're right! I cooked the pancakes 1st then use the mold to cut out the shape and printing of the facial features. :D

That is a very convenient pancake mix...just add water! You have the cutest bento stuff. I am sure your daughters' lunches are the envy of their friends :)

@Biren Tks Biren! ;D
Yeah, I do got nice feed backs from their friends and Trinke's teachers according to the gals. At times Trisia's friends do commented why are her bento so ugly today!? Trisia told them she'd to take away those food on top to be able to eat her rice that's why it's ugly now! lol

Actually most pre-mixed pancake packages are that convenient-just add water. ;)
