Character bentos – Mickey and Minnie Mouse

So i wanted to try another bento based on a cartoon character after my attempt at Pokemon and Hello Kitty, so I attempted Mickey and Minnie Mouse this time.

This is my first attempt at making Mickey and Minnie and it didn’t turn out too well I suppose? Hubs said the cheeks didn’t puff out sufficiently (ie they weren’t round enough). I made them using these cookie cutters that came with stampers, more suitable for stamping on cookie dough before baking. I cut out Mickey and Minnie onto fishcake using the cutters, but the stampers do not make any impression on nori at all hence i had to cut out the outline of ears and face freehand. My next attempt to make Mickey and Minnie will be done by tracing a printout of their images onto baking parchment, which I hope will enable me to follow their features more closely.

The rest of the kids dinner contained some stir fried beans, chicken karaage and fruits, with a slice of cucumber used as a baran this time.
