Yesterday Monstro had Spanish class after school. It's so cute to have him come home and speak his little kid Spanish :D I wanted to subtly remind him to stay after school so his katsu is waving an "Hola" banner at him.
He was originally supposed to have "katsushi" but then decided that morning that he didn't want it. That was a good thing because we are totally out of nori (well, not totally, we have scraps with little faces cut out!) AND out of katsu sauce. I used an ice cream cone shaped cutter/stamp for the rice. I just sat the ring in the box and packed the rice in. Then used the stamp like a plunger to push the rice through. The cherry is homemade BBQ sauce (that's more there in the little squirrel cup) and I added little strips of carrot for the waffle cone effect. He's got baby cucumber rings a carrot flowers as usual.
I actually used a method I saw on Facebook for the carrot flowers. You cut strips from the whole carrot then slice off little flower slices. Genius!
What kind of cool tricks do you use?
