  2. Divide the rice into 3 equal-sized balls.
  3. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and place a rice ball in the center. Lift and hold the four corners of the plastic wrap and twist. Form the rice ball into a sand bag shape. Repeat to make 2 more rice balls.
  4. Cover the rice balls with sheets of prosciutto ham.
  5. Decorate the rice ball with the cream cheese using a decorating tube or spoon so it will look like a cupcake.
