SpongeBob was made of steamed egg with minced meat which I thought it was perfect and natural for his face - a sponge like texture. Seaweed and rice onigiri which I flattened to make his eyeballs. SpongeBob has blue eyes. Unfortunately, I did not have any blue ingredient at hand. Corn kernel for his nose. Cheddar cheese for his cheeks. Seaweed for his mouth. Two grains of sticky rice for his bunny teeth! White rice for his shirt and for the pants, I painted with soya sauce. I cut out the details of his collar and belt from nori and carrot was used to make the tie. On the sides, he has blanched broccoli, corn kernels, star carrot and strawberries.
