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:
fuzzy apple slices
cream cheese icing
3 tomato paste cans
fondant (black, pink, orange and purpleish)
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.
