  5. Take a portion of sushi rice and place half onto the bottom of a block sushi mold. Smooth out to flatten. Then lay a half sheet of nori on top. Arrange various fillings on top, then top with the other half of sushi rice.

  6. Add various toppings on top and press down on the sushi using the sushi mold.

  7. Repeat with the rest of the rice, fillings and toppings.

  8. Cut each block of sushi into 8 blocks.

  9. Arrange the blocks of sushi in a random fashion onto a serving platter.
