The art of making beautiful bento boxes has always absolutely fascinated me. What a variety of shapes, colors, and designs that can be created, landscapes you can put together, all made of food cleverly shaped, molded, pressed, and decorated! Have you ever been tempted to try your hand at putting together some of those lunches? Or, even if you don’t aspire to that level of complexity, just enjoy making food in fun shapes?

You’ve come to the right place – check out this list for all the many ways you can mold and shape foods and other goodies, whether baking, cooking, frying, freezing, or pouring out to cool. It can be as simple as adding some eyes to the otherwise undecorated food, or more lavishly shaping and molding.
