爱。开心便当のBen 10 Alien Force bentos

November 18, 2010

I made these Ben10 Alien Force bentos for lunch yesterday.  The first bento (from the left), was Swampfire, Ben10 Alien Force logo in the middle and Heatblast on the right.

Most of the kids love to watch Ben10 cartoons now.  My sons are the BIG FANs of Ben10. They have Ben10 t-shirts, Ben10 pencil boxes, Ben10 pencils, Ben0 erasers, Ben10 watches, Ben10 bags, Ben10 coloring books, Ben10 story books and etc.  Everytime they see something with Ben10 pictures, sure they will request  us to buy for them. If the price is reasonable, their wishes will be fulfill sometimes…hehe.  May be because of my kids love Ben10 so much, I  also started to have more interest in Ben10 now. 😉

I used cheese, nori and yellow egg sheet to make the Swampfire.  My eldest son complained that this was not nice…not look like the Swampfire in the movie. 😦 I knew…the color is not same…because I spoilt the red color egg sheet after I make the Heatblast…so…no more red egg sheet for me to use and I am too lazy to make a new one again…hehe.

The Heatblast was make of yellow and red color egg sheet with cheese eyes…some defeat here…the cheese eyes melted before I took the pictures.  😦

The easiest one should be this Ben 10 Alien Force logo…using green egg sheet as the background color and nori and cheese for the words.

All the three bentos were having the same food, white rice, roasted pork (烧肉) and vegetable with dry shrimp. 

Here are some information about Swampfire and heatblast…

Swampfire is a Methanosian from the planet Methanos. Swampfire is a plant-like alien with a fire-patterned head.

Heatblast is a Pyronite from the star Pyros. Heatblast is Ben’s first transformation, accidentally activated in the pilot episode of the original series, “And Then There Were 10” when Ben was trying to remove the Omnitrix immediately after it first attached to him.

Ben10 生日蛋糕

September 10, 2010

昨天是小儿子, Eugene 的三岁生日。他很喜欢 Ben10,所以我特地去了一趟烘焙材料店买了一张可以食用的 Ben10 蛋糕图案 (Ben 10 edible cake image),准备放在自制的巧克力蛋糕上。

蛋糕是照着之前的蒸巧克力湿润蛋糕 (Steamed moist chocolate cake)食谱,双倍份量的材料做成的;由小杯子改去8寸圆形烤盘。 蛋糕蒸熟后,我用自制巧克力酱来装饰,然后放上食用的 Ben10 蛋糕图案。一个爱心蛋糕就完成咯! 🙂

CHOCOLATE FUDGE

Ingredients:

  • 35g cocoa powder, sifted
  • 50gm corn flour, sifted
  • 125ml evaporated milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 175ml water
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g unsalted butter

Method:

  1. Mix all ingredients well (except the butter. stir over double boiler at low heat till thickened. (takes abt 10mins to thicken)
  2. Add butter, turn off fire and stir till the butter melts.
  3. Spread the warm fudge over the cake to coat evenly.
  4. Chill the cake in the fridge before serving.

在装饰方面,我只是稍微的用巧克力酱把蛋糕体涂抹均匀,不敢放太多的巧克力酱,因为家人都不喜欢。 把蛋糕体涂抹完巧克力酱后,放上图案,再用挤袋挤出巧克力花在蛋糕底部边缘和图案边缘。

蛋糕本身已经有很浓厚的巧克力味道,就好像之前做的蒸巧克力湿润蛋糕那样好吃,只是个人认为巧克力酱可以再涂厚一点, 不然就把蛋糕体分成两份,中间再涂上巧克力酱,那么这个蛋糕就更加美味可口了。 😉

大家都很喜欢这个蛋糕,尤其是两个儿子。。。看到他们喜欢的 Ben10 就更加开心的不得了。 孩子开心,身为妈妈的我就更加高兴啰!哈哈哈。。。
