2. Take the longer strip and form it into a ring.
3. Wrap the shorter strip around the center of the ring prepared in Step 2, and tie the ends together with a piece of cellphone noodle (or whatever you choose to use).
4. Make 5 of the same ribbons from the cheese.
5. Cut out 10 slices from the cheese using an ellipse-shaped cutter.
6. Divide the vinegared rice into two 175 g portions, and mix the sakura denbu into one. Then, divide both the pink and white portions of rice into 5 smaller portions.
7. Take the rice portions from Step 6 and shape them into small, flattened barrels. make slight depression in the centers.
8. Place the cheese ellipses on top of the depressions you formed in Step 5.
9. Secure the ribbons from Step 4 with cellophane noodles (or whatever you choose to use), and you're all done.
