  10. thanks for all the great comments!

    re: faces - I use a craft punch - the type used for paper and a sheet of nori (dried seaweed), I have several punches that I picked up cheap, you can buy special nori punches but they are way more expensive. To get the face on the 'animal' punch out the face then wet the end of a chopstick and pick the nori up with that, SO much easier than your fingers.

    the white fish are made using a carrot shaped cutter and the cucumber fish are turnips :o)

    For the crab, hold the sausage in the middle and cut 4 slices into each end, boil in water or fry for a few minutes and the legs will open. Easy!
