Rice Mini Food Boxes:
I love baking and had been looking for some time for something small to store cake decorations in. When I saw these mini food boxes made by Danish company, Rice I couldn't resist buying them there and then even though I knew that the shop I was in was expensive and I could probably get them cheaper elsewhere.
The boxes come in a little plastic "net"which contains 12 boxes/tubs; I choose the heart-shaped selection and I have a mixture of purple, pink, red and orange heart-shaped tubs with matching lids. Obviously you can mix and match the bottoms with the lids if you feel so inclined. They also had a flower selection and a mixed bag that contained flowers, squares and round ones if I remember rightly. Both the flowers and the mixed bag have more subtle colouring than the heart shaped ones I choose.
The capacity is around 70ml which is teeny so they are perfect for what I wanted them for and it makes a world of difference to have my cake toppings in tubs big enough for pick out individual decorations or to take a "pinch" of something to sprinkle. Being a crafty type I am always tempted to nab some of these for buttons, sequins etc. but I have managed to be good so far and have left them in the kitchen.
The plastic that the bottoms are made out of is rigid and sturdy and the lids are sort of rubbery which makes them easy to take off and put on. Once the lid is on it seems both air and moisture tight.
Because the set I chose are all one shape it allows them to be stacked easily but with the mixed bag it would be a little harder but these are so small that they barely take up any space anyway.
I could go on to list about a million uses for these handy little tubs but I won't; I'm sure if see/buy some you will be able to think of many uses.
I paid £5.95 for my set in a little boutique type place in Clifton, Bristol and after having a glance around online I realise I didn't pay that much over the odds; Amazon is stocking them (as well some super-cute car shaped ones) for £5.50 with free delivery and they seem to be on sale for anywhere between £5.50 and £9.99.
If you are need of small, pretty, hard-wearing storage than you can't go far wrong with a set of these.
