Great idea... but something tells me iv seen this idea before...

Anyway, I still like it!

I wish I'd discovered this the other day.

I could send this to lunch wrapped up with a chop stick instead of a pencil.What a cute bento idea

well just made a heart shaped cookie cutter from an olive can, but i'm sure I have seen it(used can cookie cutter) before but can't remember where, I'm gonna make thin sheet cake of red velvet - heart shaped whoopees i guess

How cool would (will) this be for a surprise Valentine's day breakfast?! Thanks for sharing.

this was awesomely unexpectedly cool, thank you. :)

Beautifully simple and worth a bucket load of brownie point on Valentines day. Thank you.

Ha! I didn't even realize these were real eggs in the photo. I had no idea this could be done. Very original--you have my vote for rubber bands!
