Sushi Christmas Presents (using the Rice Cube)

What is a Rice Cube? It's an awesome kitchen gadget that shapes the rice into a cube in about 4 easy steps.
So what did I decide to make? Sushi Presents for our Christmas lunch. We were already planning a massive hot dinner so something cold and light for lunch was the way to go.

Place some sushi rice in the contraption

I added my regualar sushi tuna mix in the middle (recipe here)
And topped it with some more rice
Watch the video here to see how the device works

Push, fold, push, slide and there you have it....

I cut up some nori sheets and wrapped it around each side, then made a nori bow....
Using a strip of nori, wet the ends and stick it together to form a circle (like picture). Pinch the middle and wrap a small bit of nori around the centre and place it on the top of the rice cube

And that's my Sushi Present
By the 4th attempt I was definitely getting better

Merry Christmas!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with love and laughter and of course lots of food : )
