Sushi Cupcakes

After I decided to make this Instructable I realized there are already some similar to this but hopefully this one is a bit different. I didn't mean to try and step on any toes or copy anyone :)

It's one of my best friend's birthday and her favourite thing ever is sushi, she eats it about 6 days out of the week so of course I wanted to make her a sushi cake for her birthday! Well, I should say cup cakes. I made two different styles, one is a classic roll and the other, to be completely honest, I have no idea what it's called.

For this project I used the following:

gummy bears
fuzzy peaches
fuzzy apple slices
chocolate cake
cream cheese icing
3 tomato paste cans
fondant (black, pink, orange and purpleish)
parchment paper

Step 1: Baking the cake

I used 3 tomato paste cans and cut off both ends for my sushi roll "cake pans" each can makes 2 rolls. I lined the inside with parchment and places them on a baking sheet. I filled them about 3/4 full, I used the rest of my cake batter in a small square pan. A little bit of batter leaked out from underneath my cans but nothing to significant. I don't know if there would be anyway to keep this from happening but it wasn't a big deal so I wouldn't worry about it.

Step 2: Cutting cake

So you'll end up with some funny shaped cakes. I cut the rounded ends off then cut my cakes in half. These will each be a sushi roll. I cut up my larger cakes into rectangles with some half circles to fit on top of the nameless sushi.
That is perfect for baking cylindrical cakes! Love how they turned out; I love food that looks like other food :D
