faux sushi birthday cake . how to-sday


Friday was my best friend Marion's birthday, so I had to make a pretty phenomenal cake. I wanted to make an owl cake but had a last minute change of heart and went with sushi. I Googled for ideas but found only tons of cakes with lots of little sushis on them, so I decided to design my own and share the process with you guys {& I better not see this on Cake Wrecks!!!}:

    Where can I buy green fruit roll ups? It seems like they only make multicolored or strawberry these days!

  41. I make "rice" for my Chinese New Years cake with fondant pressed through a garlic press and just cut it was it comes out the length I want it. Works great, looks like rice. You can also do it with candy clay (modeling choc)
