learning to pause instead of pressure

Heart Shape Hard Boiled Egg

this is the almost completed step 
(leave for 10mins)

result: almost heart shape! haha

Few days ago I blogged up about this popular Bento Blogger who recently posted up how to make heart shape boiled egg from DIY (using what's around you). I tried that today for dinner, I cut up a box into a rectangular piece, folded it in half and then placed my hard boiled egg in the middle. Using one chopstick, I placed it across the egg and secure each end with a rubber band tied to the cardboard. For more detailed and photo step by step, please check out Anna The Red here! My Heart Shape Hard Boiled Egg isn't perfect :( few mistakes I learn:
  • boiled egg hard! 10-15mins (u need the yolk to be hard or it'll ruin ur shape)
  • don't be afraid to placed the chopstick hard into the middle (so to create that arch)
  • use bigger sized eggs, small eggs will be problematic
  • pray that the egg yolk don't harden at the sides or it'll rupture the shape.
Well I'll practice until I get a perfect heart shaped egg! so I can make nice bento/salad heart shape for my bf.

  6. It's cute and sounds very cool. I want to try how to make a heart shape out of that boiled egg.

  7. Awww Sorry it didn't work out the way you wanted but it still looks yummy!

    I love the list of mistakes you learned from because that's probably the MOST important things when you cook food! A lot of people just give up after one try, but what they don't realize is that they can learn a lot from their mistakes and do soooo much better the next time! :D

    Best of luck to you!

    A freshly cooked hard-boiled egg with a roundish chopstick works the best. (also if you can find it, try using a milk carton. From my experience, it's the strongest and the most re-usable material for this.)
