Last week 13 teens got together to create culinary candy masterpieces! How did they do it?
They were given a very quick tutorial on how to make a sushi roll (check out this tutorial for an example), supplied with a lot of rice crispy treats and candy ingredients, and set loose to create!
Here is what they had to work with:
Instead of this regular sushi ingredient / they had this candy sushi ingredient:
Rice / Rice Crispy Treats - instead of a dish, I molded them into thin sheets using a jelly roll pan.
Seaweed / Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit-by-the-Foot, sour strips
Fish / Swedish Fish, gummy worms, gummy bears
Fish eggs (Roe) / Nerds, Red Hots
I also supplied pretty little clear plastic plates, cellophane, ribbon and origami paper to wrap up the sushi rolls into beautiful packages. This way, teens could give them away as nice gifts... that is, if they didn't eat them all first!
