Have you seen the black cat? Here it is! It is rice wrapped in a nori sheet. The eyes are made of candy. You can buy candy eyes from any cake making store.

Pandas are endangered too, and I want the whole world (in my small little world) to be aware that these pandas need to be loved, cared for, and protected.

Last month, I bought the panda body shaper and nori detail cutter for the ears, eyes, arms…
