Doll Festival Sushi Cake

Doll Festival Sushi Cake

I made a gorgeous sushi cake.

Ingredients: 4 servings

White rice
2 rice cooker cups worth (360 ml uncooked)
Chirashi-zushi mix
1 packet
4 (to taste)
Salmon flakes (bottled type is OK)
as needed
to taste
Nabana (greens)
for decoration
Salad shrimp
for decoration
Salmon roe
for decoration
Cherry tomatoes
for decoration


1. Cook the rice so that it's a little bit harder than usual. Mix in the chirashi seasoning mix. Mix the aonori into half of the rice to color it.
2. Make the scrambled egg. I made it a little bit sweet by adding more mirin than usual. Boil the nabana leaves, cool, and set aside.
3. In a silicone cake dish, layer the egg, chirashi rice, cooked salmon flakes, and nori colored rice in that order. Use a droplid to push down on it and squeeze it all together.
4. Flip it onto a plate and the base is complete! Next we have to decorate it. Use nabana, mini tomatoes, shrimp, and salmon roe to make it bright and gorgeous.

Story Behind this Recipe

I usually make each person their own individual sushi cake every year, but this year I wanted to make one large one. Since my family loves shrimp, I used a lot of salad shrimp (the type that are pre-boiled).
