Carp Banner Sushi Cake for Children's Day

Carp Banner Sushi Cake for Children's Day

This fun sushi cake can be made easily and is decorated with carp banners for Children's Day.

Ingredients: 5-6 servings

Chirashi sushi
800 g
Scrambled egg
2 large eggs
Thin omelet
as needed
Fish sausages
1/2 sausage
Carp Banners
Imitation crab sticks
Nori seaweed
Sliced cheese
1/2 slice
a small amount
Sushi vinegar
to taste
18 cm diameter cake pan
I recommend springform types
Cookie cutter


1. Thinly slice the cucumbers with a slicer. Slice the fish sausages thinly (if they're a bit frozen, they'll be easier to cut). Cut the thin omelet into circles with the cookie cutter.
2. Cut out a < shape from one end of the crab sticks.
3. Wrap 3 of the crab sticks from Step 2 with the nori. Leave the remaining 3 plain.
4. Use sliced cheese to create the eyes and scales and stick them on with mayonnaise. Make the pupil of the eye with circular cut nori.
5. Wet the springform pan slightly with water and place it on top of a plate. Pack half of the sushi rice into the cake pan and pile the scrambled egg in the center.
6. Top with the rest of the sushi rice and pack it in tightly. Remove the cake pan.
7. Line the sides of Step 6 with the circles from Step 1 in a colorful pattern. To prevent it from drying out, brush it with sushi vinegar. Decorate with the carp banners and it's done.
8. Here's what it looks like when cut.

Story Behind this Recipe

I have never made a sushi cake for boys, so I challenged myself to one.
I made the base of the cake to look like scales and topped it with carp banners to make a fun sushi cake.
