There's 104 Days of Summer Vacation ... Phineas & Ferb Bento

I was looking for something else on my iPhone earlier today and came across this photo (from almost 2 summers ago).  Apparently, I have never blogged it and it is kind of awesome because it is Phineas & Ferb, so sharing today!

We have two Phineas and Ferb sandwiches, cut from multigrain bread, although I have no recollection what they are made of.  They aren't as hard to cut out as you'd think, just cut one slice of bread first, then use that piece as a template for the second.  I recommend not filling the sandwiches until after you make finish the cutouts.

Phineas is quite easy to cut, mostly a triangle with a flat corner on the neck, then a small half circle at the ear, and another small cutout for the mouth.  His eyes are boiled egg whites, cut with a mini-oval fondant cutter and merged together, then the pupils are dots of cucumber peel.  His hair is cheese, freehanded to make the spikes.

Ferb is a little harder, not quite a rectangle, but close.  His ears involves a small bump out on the one straight cut, the top of his head/neck are flat, then he has a much larger nose about halfway down that opposite side, along with a tiny lip area.  His eyes are done the same as Phineas' eyes, but his hair is a small piece of green pepper, also freehanded.

Side dishes here include pretzels, carrots, celery, cucumbers, some sort of dip in the yellow container, blueberries and grapes.  It's packed in a two tier bento, and now I feel inspired to figure out how to make Perry.  (Perry is my favorite P&F character.)
