Mickey and Minnie bento

I made several Mickey Mouse bento for Jojo’s birthday last July. Those Mickey’s heads were made with Mickey cookie cutter that came as a pair with Minnie. Those cookie cutters are different than onigiri mold but they can be used for making onigiri too although it’s less convenient to use.

So I had a request for both Mickey and Minnie bento last week. It’s a good time since I also wanted to do Mickey and Minnie kyaraben for a while and now I’ve got an opportunity to do it.

Those Mickey and Minnie were made with the cookie cutter with additional thickness. Mickey’s and Minnie’s ears were cut with the same cutter also from chocolate flavored pasta sheet. The red flower was cut with my vegetable/ham cutter from a red pasta sheet. And the facial details were from nori, I cut them with a specially designed Mickey and Minnie nori cutter, very easy but still taking time to put them on one by one.

For the bento filling, I added slices of chicken katsu, corn, broccoli chunk, cheery tomato, chicken sausage, and fried noodle with chicken, egg, beef meatball, and carrot.
