FunBites {Giveaway} – CLOSED

If you’ve been following Dandy over the last year, you’ll recognize this company!  I sure love FunBites!  I feel kind of like a kid collecting Pokemon cards, based on how excited I am to now have all three of the cutters–the squares, the hearts, and the new triangles!

These FunBites cutters do exactly what you think–they chop food into fun shapes while allowing you to save time and your knife-and-fork skills.  Your fingers stay clean, there is no silverware involved, and it takes practically 10 seconds to use.

As I pulled this out at dinnertime for probably the 50th time to chop up the kids’ pizza, I told my husband that at first glance of this product, I honestly would not have purchased it, especially for $12.99, but knowing now what I know about how much time this has saved me, and how my kids have eaten 10x better than they would have without it, I would certainly buy it again.

So we started with the square chopper, fell in love (and you can read that review HERE), and were tickled to later collect the heart chopper (read that review HERE).  The square cutter is perfect for square sandwiches, and the hearts are great for creating to shapes.  My boy is first to pick up food pieces and put them together to make new shapes.

The orange triangle cutter is NEW and its just as great as the first two.  The high-performance curved blade cutter is pretty heavy duty—very substantial.  A Funbites cutter is more than just a cookie cutter because it has the nifty popper top that can pop the food out without you having to poke out the pieces or touch the food at all.

Besides adorable bite-sized samplers, you can make fun scenes and stories with your food!  100% made in the USA, BPA free, and hands or dishwasher safe!

I spent most of Thanksgiving morning working on a 14-layer jello and a couple pies, only to get some flu bug just as we were sitting down to eat.  I had a few bites, then spent the rest of the meal on the basement couch.  Super lame.

Especially because I spent FOREVER cutting out individual leaves for a pie crust border.  It turned out fabulous, but it took me the majority of the morning, and then I didn’t even get to eat it.  Good thing HIC asked me to review some adorable decorative pie crust cutters, so I had the opportunity to bake up another pie!  And this one took me MINUTES instead of hours.

 These cute little Mrs. Anderson’s Baking Pie Crust Cutters are perfect on pie crusts and cooler than basic cookie cutters because they have a spring action embossing part that creates details on the dough.   They were so easy to use!  Just press down on the large shape like you would a cookie cutter, then stamp it with the spring handle top.

“Rocket” got a kick out of these and spent all morning helping me!  He was happy as a bear stamping away on the scraps.  Methinks I’ll pull them out again soon to use on play-dough or cookie dough.  Clearly, these cutters are child-proof, durable, and sturdy enough to withstand “Rocket’s” vigorous pounding all morning.

Here’s a look you could try: pressing the cutouts all around the edge to create a border before you cook it.  I bet it would be lovely, especially if you covered the delicate edges with tin foil so they wouldn’t burn while the filling cooked.

To add a little color to our cut-outs, I mixed a drop of food coloring with an egg yolk and painted them up green.  I cooked them in the oven with the pie for maybe 20 minutes on 350°.  We’ll see if I can disguise leaves for holly 🙂

You can buy your own set of pie crust cutters on Amazon HERE for $8.00!

 Thank you HIC for these lovely pie crust cutters!  They will be a family favorite on many many pies to come!

My four year old son is absolutely enthralled with anything related to geography — he watches YouTube videos of the Animaniacs singing the United States songs with the capitals, and spends hours on his world map magnetic puzzle.  It’s a little overwhelming sometimes, especially when he came up with a great idea the other day to make United States cookies!

I was excited to come across Cheap Cookie Cutters — a website that offers almost any cookie cutter you can imagine for an incredibly reasonable price.  I would have loved to get him the set of cookie cutters with each of the 50 states, but we chose instead to get this one:

He loved it!  We set out to make cookies as soon as we got it, and he spent lots of time afterwards using frosting to mark different states and capitals.

Here are some of my favorite cookie cutters from the Cheap Cookie Cutters website :

I would love to use this Large Snowman for one of our Twelve Days of Christmas activities!

This cute Doll Head Cookie Cutter would be so cute for a little girl’s birthday party or for a fun baby shower!

These fun Mustache Cookie Cutters would have been perfect for my husband’s 30 birthday party that we celebrated just a couple of months ago — we played a rousing game of “Stick the ‘Stache” on a large poster print of my husband!  (Thank you, Staples, for the $2.99 engineer print!  Check that out if you haven’t already…)

Cheap Cookie Cutters is giving away one Batman cookie cutter (2″, 4″, or 6″) to a Dandy reader!
