How to Make Chocolate Sponge Sushi Cakes With Candy, Fresh Fondant Fish, and Ginger Buttercream

On a recent episode of How To Cake It, host Yolanda Gampp provides a step-by-step guide on how to make “chocolate sponge sushi cakes with candy, fresh fondant fish, and ginger buttercream.”

I love sushi. I always have, but when I visited Tokyo in 2009 I really fell in love with it. Not only do I love the way sushi tastes, I love the way it looks! Neat little parcels, filled with different textures and flavours.

I’m going to make my sushi cakes keeping that in mind. I’m using a bunch of different candies to top of my maki: coconut jelly beans for rice, Turkish delight chopped up like raw fish, and puff pastry for my deep fried soft shell crab. I am also making fresh fondant fish to place on my coconut jelly bean rice beds. This is going to be so kawaii!
