So happy when I spotted these super cute My Melody Pancake frypan at Kinokuniya KLCC branch. I was there for my Kawaii Bento book launch and book signing event over the weekend.
So of course, I headed for the Japanese section after my event to do some shopping. I was so excited to find this My Melody Pancake frypan set that I got two of them! They cost about RM90, which is around SGD34-35 dollars.
I will organise a giveaway soon~~
The super kawaii frypan is baby pink in colour, non stick and easy to use. The set also comes with a recipe booklet~
I wanted a very pink theme bento today, so I made watermelon pink pancakes :P Yes, you heard correctly! Watermelon Pancakes!
I actually wanted to use strawberry milk but my supermarket ran out of strawberry milk. I spotted the new watermelon flavoured Meiji milk, so decided to try using it instead.
Frankly I was a little worried that My Melody Pancakes were going to taste weird, but surprisingly, they were actually pretty okay.
Very faint watermelon flavour in the pancakes and I really loved the pink colour when I bit into the pancakes.
I was however miffed at myself for not being able to evenly cook the pancakes, partly because I was trying so hard to retain the pink colour of the pancakes.
Actually I think it will be okay if I had just let it brown like the usual pancakes. Since the pink colour was not so obvious at the end.
The side dishes included scrambled eggs with candied bacon bits, a yogurt side with pink grapefruit and strawberries, some grapes and edamame beans, lettuce and a little pot of sakura honey syrup for the pancakes!
Did you notice the little candy flowers and the pink pasta too? I think they match the bento well!
I also used my My Melody vegetable cutters to cut out the carrot slices – love the design!
To further enhance the My Melody theme, I used my My Melody bento picks to skewer the edamame beans and also My Melody baran sheets.
