How to make Aaron

[How to make Aaron from Where the Wild Things Are]
- spaghetti
- mashed potato
*- egg yolk
- sliced cheddar cheese
- seaweed
- radish or white-ish sliced cheese or kamaboko (fish cake), or even left over hard boiled egg white from mashed potato. In other words, you can use any white food!

– cupcake cup (I used foil cupcake cups, but if you need to microwave your food, use paper cupcake cup instead. I’ve tried it, and the paper cup handled the moisture pretty well.)
– hole punch
– straw
– scissors
– round plastic cap

*optional

1. Make some spaghetti! (You can mix the pasta with your favorite salad dressing if you like.)

2. Take some pasta and put it in a cupcake cup.

Tips: Stick a spoon in the pasta, put a fork on the spoon, and slowly spin the fork to get the pasta on around the fork. Put the spoon & pasta & fork into the cup, slide the spoon out, and then remove the fork. It'll be less messy.

3. Make mashed potato and mix it egg yolk. (Egg yolk is just to make his face yellow, so if you don’t like egg, you don’t have to mix it in.)

4. Wrap it in plastic wrap, make an oval shape, and put it on the pasta.

5. Slice radish (or sliced cheese, or kamaboko, or hard boiled egg white), and use a plastic bottle cap to cut out a “C” shape for the horn. Stick it on the head.

6. Cut sliced cheddar cheese with a plastic cap or big straw (I used a bubble tea straw) for his terrible yellow eyes.

If you don't have any plastic caps to cut cheese, you can just use a spoon to trim it.

7. If you have a seaweed cutter for a smiling face like I do, use it to cut out seaweed.

Tips: If you put very thin paper under seaweed, it's easier to cut the seaweed out.

7. If you don’t have a special seaweed cutter, cut it freehand with scissors, an cut seaweed out with a hole punch, and put it for the eyes.

*For step 7, if you don’t have access to seaweed, you can use black sesame seeds for the pupils.
