I don’t often make Mickey and Minnie in my bentos as it is one of the characters that I find it hard to create, but how could I let Valentines Day go by without a bento of these classic characters?
I tried making this last year but wasn’t happy with the results, so here is my attempt again this year.
Minnie and Mickey are made of rice mixed with teriyaki sauce, with nori for facial details. I found some lip shaped sprinkles in a baking store last week, and planted kisses all over Mickey’s face. Minnie’s bow is made using a slice of ham.
Side dishes include strawberries and blueberries, chicken and broccoli, hard boiled egg and a cherry tomato heart. Here is a closer look at Minnie and Mickey.
