Top Review by mersaydees

For flavor and concept, these are 5 stars, for actual technique, these are a 4 for me. I think these require some skill as I made as directed, yet my sweet potato filling wasn't firm enough to take in the cheese and roll in the rice. I got some to work, as you can see from my photo(s), but couldn't get the volume out. I will try these again. Thanks, I'm Pat! Made for Newest Zaar Tag game.
