This looks great too, something my daughter would love! Yet I have to look for a Mozzarella that can be grated. Possibly there are more kinds of it? The ones we usually buy are very soft, and bought in its own water in the bag. They can be sliced, but not really grated. I think, maybe I should try...and will research...:)
