  • Sushi or sticky rice
  • nori sheet (dried seaweed)
  • Equipment:
  • 3 D baby penguin rice mould set


  • Cook the rice according to packet instructions. Once the rice is ready, leave to cool then stir through seasonings of your choice (I added a little sushi vinegar to mine).
  • Take the penguin mould and fill with rice, pressing it in with the back of the spoon and adding more rice as necessary. Place the top piece of the mould onto the rice and press it down to shape it, then remove the mould pieces. You should be left with a penguin shaped block of rice.
  • Next, use the first punch plate to cut out the back piece from nori (dried seaweed sheet).  Place the nori shape onto the back of the rice penguin (it should stick nicely by itself) following the shape on the body from the tip of the tail to the top of the head and bending the sides around to enclose the back of the penguin. Use the second punch to cut out the wings, feet, beak and eye shapes and stick them into place to complete the penguin. use a dab of water if necessary to help stick them in place. Then serve.
