Pikachu Bao Bento

We haven't had a char siu bao bento in awhile so, here's one for July. I made Pikachu using a bao and a hot dog bao cut in half for ears. I added ear and eye details with Okinawan sweet potato, radish for cheeks, purple carrot for nose and mouth, and hot dog for tongue. Okay, the ears aren't as pointy as they should be. I had to tell MisterMan what it was supposed to be, and he said "Oh, Pichu? It looks more like Pichu." All right then. If you don't know (and I didn't), Pichu is the pre-evolved version of Pikachu. I guess that's appropriate! He also gets a donut nectarine (not very sweet), steamed broccoli, cherry tomato, carrots and cherries. Happy Wednesday!

    Chantale, it has been a long time since I've made Pokemon. Hmmm. This was supposed to be the summer of charaben too. I should get on the ball. Thanks!
    Thanks Diana!
    Amaaris, no, the ears did not fit. I lay them in on the side, and told him he had to assemble it himself. He agreed to that :)
    Thanks Heather! Everyone else seems to like the donut nectarines. Weird. Whatever :)
