I have so got to try this one.

It's a recipe where you make an origami bunny balloon out of parchment paper, pipe cake mix into it, and bake it. So cute!

Oh My Goodness! Thanks for sharing. Love that-combining two of my long-time favorite hobbies-baking and origami, who would have known it was possible!
Come visit me at Flickr for bentos that are always gluten-free for mom and kiddo, sometimes casein-free and now always lowcarb for mom.

Oh, thanks for posting the link :)
The bunny origami isn't as hard to fold as it may look like... it's from a children's book afterall ;) but it's a bit time consuming if you want to make it in large quantities I must admit. But you don't have to make that much muffins. Instead, you could make 2 single large bunny muffins (with half of the amount of ingredients), bake them in the microwave for about 5 minutes (because it would be energy waste to turn on the oven for 2 muffins) and pack them in your bento box.
Hmm, but the ears could get squashed...

If other origami models come to your mind that could be used for baking, please tell!

ooh I just saw the link to a video of how to create the bunny. V.helpful, I might practice on some regular square paper first. It has been a long time since I folded origami! :oops:

Well, I imagine you could use any number of box patterns to get a differently-shaped muffin cups. Some designs may lack the stability for baker's parchment. I think that doing some math so that a bunch of square paper boxes fit into a brownie pan would be a neat way to get individual-portion brownies for the freezer.

Then I stumbled onto this blog http://origami.oschene.com/page/2/ and thought I'd like to try making a cake in a tato purse. For that, maybe I'll do a large cake or bread for a potluck. (A small metal tube can help cook a cake that doesn't have enough surface area for its volume.)

The search-distraction got me a little fascinated about making cardstock packaging for a dry pocket-snack. I think in England, they used to package fried food in sheets of newspaper, which is another fascination to me. (My husband just doesn't want me to use paper with printing on it.)

Wow, thanks for sharing the links. The tato boxes are amazing. I definitely have to try baking something with them.
Some boxes lack stability but sometimes you can solve that problem by making 2 boxes and stacking them.Or you can fixate creases with a stapler. It worked for me!
Type "origami vase" into google image search - there are many nice results as well.
