Hi all, I am NOT a decorator at all. I simply LOVE to bake and create new recipes and tweak box mixes etc...I've picked up a few tips/techniques here and there but I've never taken a class or sold cakes or anything like that.

My son wants his 11th b-day party at a local sushi/hibachi restaurant and I thought I'd bake a cake and decorate it like it has sushi, wasabi, ginger etc...on top.

Any ideas? I've NEVER used fondant or gumpaste or made any flowers or anything. I'm very creative so I've thought about using green fruit rollups and roll up some swedish fish and maybe put a bit of flaked coconut on it. Perhaps I could cut a twinkie and wrap it in fruit roll ups as well. Any other ideas?

I love the idea of a sushi cake/desserts. I think you have the right idea using green fruit leather, gummy fish, chocolate sprinkles, mini donuts, fresh fruit. I'm trying to post photos for you, but encountering an error... I will see what I can do to get them up here. For now... you can visit my idea photos here:

I hope this helps!

i love the idea of using a twinkie for forming the rolls!!

i did a sushi cake a while back and used white sprinkles for rice and was really happy with the results. green buttercream made easy wasabi and various colours of fondant were great for the centers and ginger.

here is a link to show how well the rice came out icon_smile.gif

look forward to pics of your finished work!

Hi i have one in my photos. It was made for my special nephew. He loved it. I think i told how i made it. I got the idea from elisa strousse's book. I used b/c instead of fondant. He doesn,t like fondant. I made lots of things ahead of time. The day of decorating was a cinch. It was so fun to make.
