Danger Mouse bento

Continuing the 80’s cartoon characters theme, today’s bento is Danger Mouse!

He is made from pressed rice with meat ears, a cheese eye and a nori seaweed patch. His nose is a Morello cherry. The Danger Mouse logo is cheese on an oval of pressed rice and the gaps are filled in with grapes, broccoli, Surimi pressed fish “crabsticks”, tomatoes, carrot, apple and Wasabi crispy peanuts.

I tried getting the ears and nose of Danger Mouse to fasten on to the head with cocktail sticks but it broke the rice up too much, so i ended up propping the rice balls up on the backgrounds and gap fillers. I would have ideally liked the nose to be higher up, closer to the eyes.

My toddler and I ate this bento straight away! This was the only photo I could get without my little boy’s eager little hands in the pic!
