This is the Nekobus from My Neighbor Totoro. It's made of pancake, cut out with a very sharp knife. The "flaps" at the bottom are outlined on one side, where I shaved the pancake top so you could see the cuts better- otherwise they would not show up. The cat's eyes are cheese and black sesame seeds. The other details are nori. The little critter beside the cat is a rice ball wrapped in blanched red lettuce- "ears" are broccoli, and the eyese are cheese and black sesame. The mouth or nose is broccoli. The two creatures sit on a bed of sushi rice, and that is decorated with bell pepper flowers, micro greens, and broccoli.
I sent this to school with a Bora Bora bar, some apple sauce, some carrot sticks, and a tiny chocolate bar.
