Tools: Scissors, drinking straw, toothpick.
1. Mold the rice with cling wrap.
2. Cut out nori for the parts you want them to look black (ears, eyes, mouth, hands).

Tips: Use toothpick to pick up and transfer the nori. Mayonnaise as glue.
Characters food making should be fun, inspiring and inexpensive. I don’t want to spend too much time searching and buying all kind of gadgets and end up neglecting or forgetting them. So I tried to stick to the basics. I used what I normally have in my kitchen or it must be easy to be found in the markets around my neighbourhood.
P.S. My apology for the low quality of my pictures. It was all taken by iPhone 4 and with my favourite Valencia filter on Instagram. You can view my latest posts here.
